Important Notice about CPA Meetings

Due to the COVID-19 virus, the CPA Board of Directors has suspended our in-person meetings until further notice. 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!

Meeting Highlights

September 8th, NO MEETING

September 22nd, 7:00pm via ZOOM
Ken Axelrad
Photosynthetic Art
Ken has been working with digital images for more than 20 years. Photosynthetic art combines selected portions of multiple digital photographs arranged in up to 25 semi-transparent layers. They are then further modified with basic photoshop tools. Ken uses the camera to sample visual bits of the environment and then synthesizes these bits into a new picture.

Ken is a former neuropsychologist who has a long-standing fascination with perception and emotion. What attracts the eye? What makes us perceive depth? What makes us see motion in an abstract piece? What stimulates passion? You can view samples of Ken’s work at: Ken's Facebook Page

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