Current Exhibition

The Edge

CPG's first show of the new year, featuring member photographer Ken Martin.

Of his theme, Mr. Martin wrote "One of the subjects I like to photograph is the junction of two opposing things, such as land and water, or solids and air, and explore the boundaries, like life at the edge of something, or the sharp edge of a building, what is at the edge of our nation, or just edgy pictures."

An opening party will be held on Saturday, January 10th, from 5-8 p.m.

The exhibit is on view from January 10th - February 1st, 2015.

Under Television Skies

Ms. Ross' work, How to Watch TV, is on view in a December-January group exhibition, Under Television Skies, at First Studio in Phoenix, Arizona.

"For good and ill, our society gathers around the television like earlier generations gathered around the hearth, and our experience of the world is highly influenced by the filtered and stylized messages and images it broadcasts. In December and January, a group of artists present their visions of life lived in the glare of TV. The exhibit has an appropriate venue in Phoenix, Arizona's historic First Studio, which was once the city's original television station, and now is a venue for creative businesses."

- Richard Bledsoe

The exhibit is open from December 5, 2014 – January 30, 2015

Opening Reception December 5, 2014 6pm – 10pm

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.
