Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) will present “In Train View,” an exhibition of 30 large format photographs showcasing the amazing talent of the Sonora Photo Club, that will be on display June 22 through Sept. 1.

With a variety of compelling images, portraits and trains in action, “In Train View” also artfully raises attention to the often-overlooked elements of the historic shops and roundhouse at Railtown 1897 SHP.

As a special kick-off, park visitors are invited to join the photographers for an opening reception at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 22. Once debuted, the exhibit will then be on display at Railtown 1897 SHP through Labor Day weekend. The rail-related photographs will also be offered for sale, with proceeds to benefit the Park.

The photo exhibit is presented by the Sonora Photo Club, founded in 2005 in the California Gold Country town of Sonora, to promote the art of photography. Its goal is to explore the entire photographic experience from equipment to photographic techniques, from shooting to post processing and printing.

Photographers of all experience levels from beginner to professional meet on the second Sunday of the month at 1 p.m. in a supportive and friendly environment where they can share their expertise and develop skills in all aspects of photography.

Open daily, the photo exhibit is included with park admission, which is $5 for adults, $3 for youths ages 6 to 17 and free for children 5 and under.

The park is located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Reservoir Road in Jamestown. Railtown 1897 State Historic Park is open daily and the park’s operating hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

For more information call Railtown 1897 State Historic Park at 209-984-3953 or visit the Website at railtown1897.org.
