The 19 members of the Blue-Eyed Knocker photography club are getting ready for their exhibit March 17 at Gallery 26, a show they say will be one of the largest displays of fine art photography ever in Central Arkansas.

The club has been working for three years on the exhibit, which opens with a St. Patrick's Day reception from 7 to 10 p.m. featuring food, drinks and music.

The photographers in the exhibit are the students of Rita Henry, one of Little Rock's photographic talents. Samples of what you'll see in slideshow.
