CPA is excited to present the exhibition Artists as Teachers, featuring the talented artist-educators of Monterey County’s accredited fine art photography programs. Participants include Kevin Bransfield, Martha Casanave, Celia Lara and Greg Mettler of Monterey Peninsula College, Monterey; Claire Lerner of Santa Catalina School, Monterey; Angelica Muro of California State University, Monterey Bay, Seaside; Lesha Rodriguez, Dina Ropele Santos, Nancy Sevier and Trish Sullivan of Hartnell College, Salinas; and Cole Thompson of Stevenson School, Pebble Beach. Many of these educators are also regularly exhibiting photographers, whose work is collected by various private and public institutions.

We are very excited to showcase this important group of artists who have the challenging task of sharing with their students the Monterey Peninsula’s widely recognized photographic legacy, while also illuminating the latest trends in twenty-first century image making.

Plan to join us at the Artists’ Roundtable in Carpenter Hall from 4:00 to 5:00 pm on Saturday, February 24, with a reception to follow in the CPA gallery. A catalog will be available for purchase on site and online.

In Addition: In conjunction with Artists as Teachers, CPA is hosting a series of three print reviews especially for students! Only students will be sharing work but all CPA members are welcome to attend to support our students and enjoy the expert feedback and insights.

March 15, Thursday, 6:30 – 8:00 pm – Special Guest, Zach Weston, Director of the Weston Collective, Chapman Room, Sunset Center
