Local wildlife photographer, Mark Pemberton is the director of this year’s exhibition. “We’re thrilled to have our second show at the Art Cottage. It’s a great space to get up close and personal with the artwork. At our first show, we had 57 photographs from 14 members and we hope to exceed that number this year. We have a wide variety of outstanding images including landscapes, wildlife, abstract, street photography and journalism.”


The Diablo Valley Camera Club was founded in 1983 as an offshoot of a photography class at the Diablo Valley Adult School. They meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at the First Congregational Church in Martinez and visitors are always welcome. Click here for membership information.
