Affected meetings include our regular members 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.

Cary Photographic Artists will hold virtual meetings on the Zoom platform instead of in-person meetings. Look below and in the monthly CPA Newsletter for scheduled Zoom virtual meetings. CPA members will receive a CPA email with a link to each Zoom meeting and any password required for access.

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!
