ASTORIA — LightBox Photographic Gallery host the opening and artists’ reception of “The Stuff Dreams are Made of…,” a group exhibit featuring the work of The Portland Photographers Forum, during the Second Saturday Art Walk, 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 9.

The Forum educates on the subject of photography as a fine art through meetings, seminars, workshops, outings and photography exhibitions. Members include professional photographers, working artists, teachers and photography enthusiasts. They work in a variety of mediums with a desire to improve their work and to share the love of photography with the public.

The LightBox exhibit will showcase the work of 21 members of the group.

Susan Bein, a juror for its annual juried show, took classes from Ansel Adams, Minor White, Aaron Siskind, Nathan Lyons and Paul Caponigro, using black-and-white film and large-format cameras. After majoring in photography in college and teaching it, she eventually became a graphic designer. Her work has been included in many juried group shows, and featured in four solo gallery exhibitions, and is part of several private collections. She teaches popular classes in iPhone photography and Photoshop in Portland.

“The Stuff Dreams are Made of…” will show in the gallery Tuesday, Oct. 10. LightBox offers memberships to be part of the community that helps further the mission of the gallery.

The gallery (1045 Marine Drive) is open 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Contact LightBox at 503-468-0238 or at info@lightbox-photographic.com.
