Alfa Art Gallery is pleased to announce collaboration for the second year in a row with The Raritan Photographic Society in the 2016 New Brunswick Art Salon: Photography Exhibition.

This exhibition will give viewers a chance to escape their everyday sights and learn about alternative destinations.

About the Raritan Photo Society
RPS originally started in 1929 with a small group of photo enthusiasts regularly meeting in each other’s homes. At present, the society has 50 paid members and many more regular visitors who attend the lectures, which occur twice a month. RPS has witnessed the amazing evolution of photography from glass plates to today’s powerful digital photo technology.
The society’s photographers are united in a mutual love of photography, but maintain their individual aspirations as to what they want to achieve with that love. There are members who are professional photographers as well as members working towards achieving professional status. Its members choose to work in a wide spectrum of styles from photo realism to abstraction as well as members who are still looking to find their own style. The members hold a common passion for photography and a desire to become better photographers.
