About Us

Above: Jim Lawson talks about his photographs at the Buzz Ware Village Center Gallery in Arden, Delaware, the site of our April, 2015 meeting. The work of Beth Trepper was on exhibit there.

The Brandywine Photo Collective is a group of fine-art photographers in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland that meets monthly to critique and encourage each others’ work. We occasionally exhibit, conduct workshops, sponsor lectures, and more. The group keeps threatening to disappear but doesn’t. In 2014 we drew up bylaws, elected officers, and are working on member exhibits for 2015 and 2016. Members are admitted only after a portfolio review.


PICNIC: The Annual BPC picnic is set for Saturday, August 29, 4:00 p.m. in the Community Room of Jane’s condo, the big building in the middle of the drive – the old school house. Please bring photos to share! There are two large rooms, one for eating, one for socializing, a full kitchen and bathrooms. Also a grill outside and, if it’s a quiet night, we can use the pool as long as there are not too many swimmers. If we do a good job of cleaning up, our deposit will be returned.

So far, we know people are bringing hamburgers, hot dogs, and wine. White wine and pasta salad is possible.

Regular Members’ Meeting, Thursday, September 17, 7:00 p.m. Meetings are usually the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the studio behind Danny’s home. Members are welcome to bring guests, but guests usually do not show work. We encourage members to schedule guest speakers, who do bring work, but this should be arranged in advance.
