The spring 2018 edition of the ASC Gallery opened at the historic ASC Clubhouse on Saturday, March 10, featuring 45 photographs from nine participating Society members: Bill Bennett, Roger Deakins, Shelly Johnson, George Mooradian, James Neihouse, Antonio Riestra, David Stump, Mandy Walker and Alexander Witt

Coordinated by Photo Gallery committee chair Charlie Lieberman, ASC, the exhibition was curated by Paris Chong, manager of the Leica Gallery in Los Angeles.

The rain didn't keep people away from the Clubhouse.

A large crowd braved the night’s rain to take part the event, as did ASC president Kees van Oostrum and members David Darby, Todd Dos Reis, Eagle Egilsson, Steven Fierberg, Michael Goi, Adam Greenberg, Paul Hughen, Pater Levy, Don McCuaig, Suki Medencevic, Peter Moss, Crescenzo Notarile, Daniel Pearl, Robert Primes, Steven Shaw and John Simmons, as well as ASC executive director Eric Rodli and AC editor and publisher Stephen Pizzello.
