“Photos of Kathy and Friends” (Ron and Pam Rogers, Cassandra Walker, Kathy Bandrowski, Betty Malmgren and Priscilla Upton) are now on display through April at Mechanics Bank.
Friendships vary in origin and duration, but a common thread was a photographic trip from Napa Valley College International Education to Cuba.
“We welcomed 2004 together in Cuba, a memorable experience, and since then we have been celebrating anniversaries on and off,” said Betty Malmgren. While the tour group in Cuba numbered around 30 students, instructors and guides, different combinations of photographers pictured above maintained ties and also traveled together to Vietnam, Costa Rica, Italy, Egypt and other countries. from Africa, among others.
Most of the members of the anniversary lunch group were also active in the Napa Valley Photographic Society.
This birthday lunch group is centered around senior member Kathryne Bandrowski. “This exhibition is a tribute to her and a celebration of her photography. Her love for travel and photography continues to inspire us,” added Malmgren.
