SFMS May General Meeting at Cultural Heritage Imaging
I'm pleased to announce the May SF Microscopical Society General Meeting. It will be on Wednesday, May 31st at 7 PM, at Cultural Heritage Imaging, 2325 3rd Street, Suite 323, San Francisco, CA 94107 (cross street: 20th St.), in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco.

The event will be a tour of Cultural Heritage Imaging, an innovative art conservation imaging lab, followed by a presentation by CHI founder and director Carla Schrorer on the innovative imaging techniques they use in the area of art and artifact conservation, notably a surface detail enhancement method known as reflectance transformation imaging (RTI).
Note that the event is limited to 20 people (the facility is too small to accommodate a larger group), so you will need to RSVP to attend. SFMS members and up to one guest (attending with member) are free. Other non-members need to join SFMS to attend, but this is payable via the event page, or we can even take payment at the event itself. You will need to RSVP for a ticket, and unfortunately that page isn't up yet (needs to go through site moderation), but will be up shortly.
Link is the following URL when it's ready, and I'll send an email letting everybody know when it's ready to use: http://chi-sfms.brownpapertickets.com
