MoP - Month of Photography Denver is a biennial celebration of fine art photography with hundreds of collaborative public events throughout Denver and the region March and April 2017. We are joining multiple museums galleries and schools surrounding fine art photography creating an exciting artistic and educational event for the city of Denver and the region.
CPAC - NEW LOCATION !!
New Location and a Warm Welcome to Program Director Stephanie Lindsey
Hello! Rupert Jenkins here. January has already proven to be a busy month. We opened a marvelous exhibition of new works by Vivian Keulards and Sharon Harper, and I am pleased to share some exciting news with you that impacts our future. Before that though, a quick plug to mention that I was interviewed on Untitled Art Show, Denver's premier arts podcast, last Wednesday evening. Erik Isaak, Michael Keen, and I covered a lot of ground that I hope will tweak your curiosity and entice you over to CPAC. The show can be downloaded from the web here or on iTunes.
Now for the really exciting news! We welcome Stephanie Lindsey to CPAC. Stephanie (pictured above) joins us as Program Director, which is a new position developed to lead the alignment of our exhibition and education programs. She is an experienced teacher, photographer, and community activist, and promises to bring a defined focus and innovative approach to our programming activities.
I'm also excited to be able to announce details of our upcoming relocation to central Denver. Those of you who have supported CPAC for some time will recognize the address: 1513 Boulder Street, in Denver's Highlands district. CPAC operated a gallery there between 1998-2006, in partnership with the Carol Keller Gallery. Thanks to Carol, we are able to return there for up to two years, during which time we will locate a permanent downtown facility.
Our move will be complete by the end of June. 1513 Boulder Street is fully accessible by public transport, foot, bicycle, and car (although in full disclosure parking can be a challenge on Friday and Saturday nights!). The area abounds in restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream parlors and bars, and we are a 15 minute stroll from MCA Denver. Classes will mostly happen off-site at the Art Students League of Denver and elsewhere. Workshops will begin to happen at Boulder Street prior to the move, hopefully as soon as late April when we welcome Ed Kashi back to town.
50th Anniversary Fundraiser at Table 6 and the first Hal Gould Vision in Photography Award
Book your place now for CPAC's fundraising dinner and award ceremony at Denver's Table 6 restaurant on Thursday, March 28.
Last year, a packed dining room enjoyed a three-course meal with complimentary champagne, wine and beer, keynote address by Adam Lerner, and fine print auction.
This year, in addition to another fantastic Table 6 dinner, we mark our 50th anniversary with the first Hal Gould Vision in Photography Award. This annual award will recognize people who have made significant contributions in the Western Region to raising awareness, value, and appreciation of the photographic arts.
The 2013 awardee will be announced in February. Hal, who was one of CPAC's original founders and the long-time owner of Denver's Camera Obscura Gallery, will be in attendance.
Invitations will be mailed soon, but you can pre-empt USPS by clicking on the link below and pre-registering for what people last year were calling the best fundraiser ever.
Thank you as always for your interest and support. We look forward to seeing you at the gallery soon! __________________________________________________
