    The Kalamazoo Art Institute has an exhibit that includes photographs of Georgia O'Keeffe. I will be visiting Kalamazoo next week and wonder if there are any other photography exhibits/galleries in general vicinity of Kalamazoo?

    The Kalamazoo Arts Council has a website with a list of upcoming events. Doesn't look like much is going on next week. On Friday September 11, there is a local "Art Hop" in downtown venues. There are sure to be some photography exhibits or open studios then. Usually the Art Hop is the first Friday of the month but I guess this one is pushed back because of the Labor Day holiday.

    The new Midtown Gallery had several Kalamazoo photographers in their inaugural exhibit and may represent them.

    Thanks, Joe, for the info. I'll check out Midtown.

    Btw, is there any camera store in the area that carries 8X10 sheet film (in case I run out)? I just checked Normans and they don't.

    Norman's is the only game in town. However, Calumet is just around the lake and if you call in the morning the shipment will be in Kalamazoo the next afternoon.
