2018 CPA International Juried Exhibition
The Center for Photographic Art (CPA) is pleased to announce the 2018 International Juried Exhibition! This year we are offering $6,000 in awards. Forty-five juror-selected photographs will be exhibited in CPA’s historic gallery at Sunset Center in Carmel, California. These photographs will be featured in an online gallery on the CPA website. Up to an additional forty-five images will be selected and also included in the online gallery. An exhibition catalog of the images chosen for both the gallery and online exhibitions will be available for purchase. An entry discount is available for new and current CPA members.
2018 IJE Juror
This year's juror is Eve Schillo, Assistant Curator in the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department who has worked on a range of exhibitions in her 20+ years with LACMA, including Cuban photography, multi-media work by author/artist William S. Burroughs, an ongoing self-portraiture series, Pictorialist displays, and the still and moving imagery of Katy Grannan and Charlie White. She curates exhibitions that span photographic history and appear in galleries dedicated to American, Latin American, Modern, Contemporary and Japanese Art. Recent projects include an exhibition celebrating Mexican photographer Mariana Yampolsky (Vincent Price Art Museum); This Is Not a Selfie (touring collection exhibit); Sarah Charlesworth: Doubleworld (LACMA); and Road Trip: Photography and the American West (Musée des Beaux-Arts, Bordeaux). She is currently working on an exhibition on California photography.
Ms Schillo brings a deep understanding and broad appreciation of diverse photographic styles, genres and mediums to CPA's 2018 International Juried Exhibition.
