In November, CPA will expand its reach outside of Carmel with an exhibition and related events in Santa Cruz, CA, at that city’s premier art space, the R. Blitzer Gallery. A broad-ranging and exciting invitational exhibition, STATE OF THE ART (SOTA) features leading Northern California photographers who are exploring current issues using a diverse range of contemporary and historical mediums including digital imaging, wet plate collodian, platinum, daguerreotype and mixed media installations. The exhibition will run from November 2 through November 29, 2018, and will kick off with a festive opening reception during Santa Cruz’s FirstFriday, November 2, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. In addition, workshops and panel discussions that highlight the SOTA concept will take place in the gallery during the entire month of November. Join us in celebrating CPA’s State of the Art exhibition and our first foray into the North Monterey Bay area! A schedule of workshops, panel discussions and other events will follow.
