Description

This year, the Center for Photographic Art celebrates the 50th anniversary of our historic gallery space. CPA evolved out of the remarkable photographic community that surrounded Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, and Wynn Bullock here on the Monterey Peninsula. Our gallery, located in Carmel’s Sunset Center, was the original home of the Friends of Photography, founded byAdams, Cole Weston, and other creative luminaries in 1967. When the Friends relocated to San Francisco, the newly formed CPA inherited their space. This year marks fifty years of photography in this historic location, making it the second oldest members’ photography gallery in America.

Special guests: Michael Adams will be present to share stories about his father, Ansel Adams, in creating the Friends of Photography, Kim Weston will speak about the important role his father, Cole, played in the founding, and Lynne Harrington-Bullock will represent her father, Wynn Bullock.

Join us for this landmark anniversary celebration during the final weekend of our annual 8 x 10 Exhibition. A $30 ticket includes an evening of unlimitedfine wines from outstanding regional purveyors, hors d’oeuvres and hand crafted desserts, plus a raffle ticket good for the 8 x 10 Fundraising Exhibition. Over 75 artist-donated 8 x 10 inch photographs will be on display in the gallery, giving you the opportunity to collect one or more artworks during our annual fundraising raffle.

Raise a toast to our internationally renowned gallery space during its 50th Anniversary!
