CPS Exhibit Opening and Reception – Westlake Porter Library

A CPS Exhibit Opening and Reception will be held at the Westlake Porter Library.
Please join us on June 2nd from 2:30 – 4 pm for the opening reception of Capturing the Elements – Atmospheric Conditions in Focus. Come see how our members captured the ethereal beauty of atmospheric conditions, the ever-changing moods of the sky, the dance of light and shadow, and the interplay of weather elements. The reception is open to all CPS members and non-members.  It is a wonderful opportunity to meet and engage with club members!  Light refreshments will be provided. The library is located at 27333 Center Ridge Rd in Westlake.
