APA | SD’s 12th Annual Holiday Party & Print Exchange
is Friday, December 12th, 2014.

Yes, the holiday season is upon us again. The days are shorter, summer is nothing but memory and it’s time for the annual APA | San Diego Holiday Party and Print Exchange.

This is where you drink some better than average booze and walk away with a print created by one of California’s best photographers. Think about it: the price for a unique work of art is simply one of your prints.

Join us and a benevolent jury of your peers at what is now a venerable tradition. Arrive at the Harrison Photographic Studio with a loose print and depart in the wee hours filled with winter cheer, your heart full of holiday spirit, and your hands clutching a wonderful new photograph.

Like Christmas itself: it’s an age-old practice, a custom, and one of the wonderful things American Photographic Artists does for the San Diego creative community.

WHEN: Friday, December 12th, 6:30 PM

WHERE: Harrison Photographic Studios
930 West Ivy Street | Little Italy | San Diego 92101

COST: Free to all

Or are you?

And be prepared for that telephone call. It’s coming.
