Venues for Future Exhibits of Photographs by Individual Photographers and/or Photography Groups

FIRST ask your framer if you can display your images at the frame shop . . . if not on the walls, how about on easels? 

THEN ask local coffee houses...lots of the local coffee purveyors have changing exhibits 


THEN ask wine tasting rooms: 

- Cannery Row  
http://canneryrow.com/plan-your-visit/wine-tasting/ 
- Carmel by the Sea 
http://www.carmelcalifornia.com/things-to-do-wine-tasting-in-carmel.htm 
- Carmel Valley 
http://www.carmelvalleycalifornia.com/indexwine.html 
- River Road Wine Trail 
http://www.riverroadwinetrail.com/wineries.php 

Venues listed below have been the sites of exhibits by individual photographers and/or photography groups in the past. 


Thus - these venues may be potential sites for future exhibits by individual photographers and/or photography groups in the future.
