Central Library, Gallery - Level 5
For the statistically minded, 81 artists [20 out-of-state] entered the show, submitting a total of 416 images. The jurors selected 36 images by 23 artists [11 out-of-state], making this a very competitive selection process. “It is an honor to be able to judge the member’s exhibition of the Colorado Photographic Arts Center and see the vibrancy and variety of photographic artwork being made in the Denver area. The camaraderie and critical exchange that organizations such as the CPAC foster provide invaluable support for creative photographers. The high quality and breadth of the work submitted is a testament to this group.” - Elijah Gowin
