  • Description:

    This year, the Center for Photographic Art celebrates the 50th anniversary of our historic gallery space making it the second oldest members’ photography gallery space in America. CPA evolved out of the remarkable photographic community that surrounded Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock, and Edward Weston here on the Monterey Peninsula. Our gallery, located in Carmel’s Sunset Center, was the original home of the Friends of Photography, founded by Adams, Bullock, Cole Weston, and other creative luminaries in 1967. 

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

    Fine Wines and Epicurian Delights: An evening of fine wines from outstanding regional purveyors, such as Bernardus, Chesebro, Galante, Joullian, Morgan, Scheid, Silvestri, and Testarossa. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, and hand-crafted desserts by Loco Coco and Cocoa de Cocoa. 

    Held during the final weekend of our annual 8 x 10 Exhibition. The $30 admissions includes wine, food, festivities, and one raffle ticket good for the 8 x 10 Fundraising Exhibition. Over 85 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!
