2021 ACG Fall Conference!

It’s that time of year again – time for the Argus Museum/Argus Collectors Group Fall Conference! We are packing a lot of great stuff into the one-day virtual event taking place Saturday, October 23, 2021. (Yes, it’s virtual again, but we have gotten rather good at them.) All are invited to attend, regardless of your level of “Argus Expertise”. 

The two-session line-up includes experts from an array of photography-related fields – the University Of Michigan Museum Of Art Associate Curator of Photography, Jennifer Friess, CameraMall’s Jared Haas, and President Emeritus of the Michigan Photographic Historical Society, Cindy Motzenbecker, are among them.  

Of course, we will showcase Argus! Phil Sterritt will be discussing “Make ’em Think Argus — Promotional Items Made for the Trade”, Mike Reitsma and Pam Buckley will be giving Argy_Eyes eBay updates and insights and the Argus Crew will talk about what’s new at the Argus Museum. But there’s more! We’re showing a 2005 “Henry Gambino (the author of Argomania) Vintage Presentation”. 

Do you wish that you can join in on the presentations? Well – you can! We’re inviting conference participants to brag about their favorite Argus camera (for 2-3 minutes)! All you need to do is send a photo of your camera, along with a brief description to Wesley Furr (wesley@megley.com) no later than Wednesday October 20th.  

And yes, there will be “box lots” offered with proceeds benefiting the Argus Museum. And, yes, there will be some “good stuff” available. 

The first session of the October 23 conference begins at 12pm (EDT) and runs to 2:30. We meet again at 3:30pm and will wind it up around 6pm. To register for the event, go to: http://www.arguscg.org/events/gathering/registration.shtml.  Registrants will receive a Zoom link the week of the conference. 

For more information, contact the Argus Museum staff at cchidester@onealconstruction.com or the argusmuseum@gmail.com.

We hope to see you soon on the 23 – You know that you don’t want to miss the fun!
