Can You See Me Now

The Creative Photographers Guild challenged participants in this international juried smart-device show to explore how they defined themselves, the people they relate to and the world around them via dreamscape, fairy tale, fantasy world or reality check.

The challenge was to take their creative process beyond self-created walls, inhibitions, and restrictions while using any one or a combination of the emerging apps, software, gadgets and technologies available on smartphones & smart devices.

Cash awards for BEST of SHOW Gold - $400, BEST of SHOW Silver - $200, BEST of SHOW Bronze - $100, as well as six Best Image Using Emerging Apps - $50 each, will be presented during the opening party at 6:00 p.m., which will be held on Saturday, September 13th (5-8 p.m.)

CPG Gallery is part of the Second Saturday Staten Island Art Walk.

Can You See Me Now is on view from September 6th - October 12th, 2014.

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.
