Michael McWeeney, Guest Photographer

The textures and graphics of these images are a study of incidental order occuring in nature.
    - Michael McWeeney

From The Artist:
'For more than 25 years, I've worked to capture the moments in our lives that define who we are, the places that shape us. I've shot everything from hard news to travel, fashion to animals literally crossing my path. There's probably nothing that I don't enjoy shooting. My work has covered the gritty, dark side of humanity (murder investigation, anyone?) to the bright, lively streets of a tropical paradise. In 2007, I began delving into multimedia. I've become adept at video, combining images, copy and music into woven stories that captivate my audience.'

Opening Party: Saturday, July 8, 2017; 5-8 p.m.
Exhibit Dates:July 8 – August 13, 2017.

Entrance is FREE, donations accepted.

A Little About CPG

The Creative Photographers Guild is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization of photographers, from novice to professional, whose mission is to bring the universally expressive power of photography to the community.

The Guild also aims to provide a vibrant avenue for the promotion and appreciation of the creative and innovative world of photography to the greater New York community, especially Staten Island.

In service of those goals, the Guild opened the CPG Gallery in March of 2009 on Staten Island's arts-oriented North Shore.

Members also seek other venues in which to exhibit photographs, promote public awareness of the unique artistic qualities of photography, support other artists and arts projects, and share skills and information with the community at large.

All are encouraged to visit the gallery and speak with the photographers, one of whom is always on hand for discussions.
