Welcome to the Center for Photographic Art – the second oldest members’ photography gallery organization in the country. A short walk from Ocean Avenue in Carmel, California brings you to the venerable gallery originally occupied by the Friends of Photography, established in 1967, and launched by iconic artists Ansel Adams, Cole Weston, and Wynn Bullock. Today, CPA continues to serve as a valuable asset to its members, the community, and the greater world of the photographic arts.
