Important Notice about CPA Meetings

In view of the risks posed by the COVID-19 virus, as of March 11, 2020, the CPA Board of Directors has suspended our regular meetings at The Cary Theatre until further notice. These meetings include our regular membership meetings on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month, the quarterly Board of Directors meetings, and the CPA Members' Critique meeting that meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday at the Cary Arts Center. We will notify you in a timely manner when CPA decides to resume these meetings. Hopefully this is in the not too distant future.

If this is your first visit to the Cary Photographic Artists page, all the Cary Photographic Artists members would like to welcome you to our website!

The Cary Photographic Artists meets at 7:00 p.m., on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at The Cary Theatre, 122 E. Chatham St., Cary, unless otherwise noted. Map to Parking at The Cary - Please observe parking restrictions.

If you wish, come early at 6:30p.m. and join in our social time. It is a great opportunity to spend a few minutes catching up with friends, getting to know fellow members, introducing your guest around, exchanging ideas and generally having a nice time before the program starts!

Please see News page & Calendar for aditional details.

Wabi Sabi: In Search of a Way of Seeing and How Wabi Sabi Got Me There

In this presentation, Fran DeRespinis will review the origins and elements of the Wabi Sabi aesthetic, explain how this aesthetic differs from our own Western way of knowing and seeing, and provide insight into how this can help you express yourself differently in your photographic work.
