It’s time for CPA’s most exciting and important fundraiser of the year: our 8 x 10 Fundraising Exhibition!
Our gallery will be filled with a wide-ranging selection of small framed works of art generously donated by our talented community of photographers. We have works by over 100 established and emerging artists from California and beyond! Due to COVID-19, our 8×10 Fundraiser will be an online auction this year instead of a raffle, but all the works will be installed in our gallery for the public to view in person as well. With the Center for Photographic Arts deep roots in traditional West Coast Photography and our historic space that once housed the Friends of Photography Gallery, we are pleased to report that our fundraising exhibition will have works by each of the founders of the Friends of Photography: Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock and Cole Weston. This special show also features contemporary works from rising stars in the photography world and local legends and favorites! While the majority of the works will be for auction, we have a special selection of photographs that will be for raffle only in the gallery.

Join us online for the virtual opening reception of CPA’s 8×10 Fundraising Exhibition on September 19. The event will begin at 4:00pm via Zoom with a gallery walk-through led by executive director, Ann Jastrab. With the pandemic, all of our related programming will be online through the duration of the exhibition (look for artists’ talks and classes by some of the participating photographers). The CPA gallery will be open Friday through Sunday from 12:00-4:00pm and by appointment for the public to view this exciting show. The online auction will be open for bidding from October 8-29. Come in and choose your favorites or view the show online. Let the bidding begin!
