This month's Step Up Gallery ​exhibit is a collection of images taken by members of the Viewpoint Gallery Installation Crew (the Hangin' Crew). The images vary in subject, style, and media, as well as treatment and presentation, therefore these photographs reflect the unique individual views of the various crew members.

Each person on the crew is a member of Viewpoint Photographic Art Center and together they volunteer 1-3 days a month to take down the previous show, box it up, prepare the walls by patching and painting, then lay out, mount, label and light the next​ ​exhibit in time for the Members' Reception and the 2nd Saturday Art Walk.

The Installation Crew Members come with varying backgrounds, knowledge and experience in photography and few have had prior experience in gallery installations. Most of the members are just people who want to help, who are willing to learn from others, and who take great care with the work of the Viewpoint's exhibitors. Some members have been part of the Crew for only a few months while others have enjoyed hang​ing exhibits​ for many years. They have realized that preparing Viewpoint exhibits is fun​,​ and for the most part​,​ a social event as well as a work party.

The “Hangin' Crew” gets together every month for a couple of days to work on the shows, have lunch, discuss life's wonders, and to display as professionally as possible some of the extraordinary photographic art of the Sacramento Region.
