Water Street Studios New Exhibit: ‘The Fermilab Photo Club Show’


Water Street Studios’ Dempsey Family Gallery will be hosting an exhibit of photographs taken by the Fermilab National Laboratory’s Photo Club.

As part of Fermilab’s 50th Anniversary celebration, photographs of the country’s leading particle physics laboratory and its 6,800-acre site will be on display. Twenty-three members of Fermilab’s Photo Club have captured images ranging from the on-site bison herd to the Lab’s Bubble Chamber.

During the opening night reception, you’ll get to meet a number of these photographers while also enjoying live music, free food by Gaetano’s Batavia, a cash bar featuring beer from Solemn Oath Brewery and wine from Bright Angel wines. Thank you to our gallery event sponsor K. Hollis Jewelers.
