Important Notice about CPA Meetings

In view of the risks posed by the COVID-19 virus, on March 11, 2020, the CPA Board of Directors 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. This suspension will continue in force at least until the Town of Cary re-opens its facilities, currently planned after June 30th.

Cary Photographic Artists will begin virtual meetings on the Zoom platform Wednesday, May 27, 2020, at 7 PM. It will be great to get together again. This is a way to respect social distancing in the days of Covid-19 while still pursuing our passion for photography.

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.

Meeting Highlights

May 27th
On May 27, Jon Meyer will kick off our online programs talking about The Composite Image. He talked to CPA about the subject last October but this presentation will go further into the utility of composite images, the concepts that lend themselves to the technique, a live demonstration of image assembly with selection, movement, blending, and finishing, and review of a new composite portfolio.

CPA members will receive a CPA email with a link to the meeting and a password required for access.
