Current Exhibition

Everything New is Old Again

Featured photographer Robert Haber penned this Artist Statement:

"'What has been will be again - What has been done will be done again. There is nothing new under the sun.' - Ecclesiastes 1:9

The theme of this exhibit takes modern subjects and portrays them in photographic styles from the past, thus reinforcing the idea that all art is basically just variations of previous works. In writing there is the idea that there are only seven plots in the world and all literature is just variations of these seven basic themes.

Photography as a visual media also has certain basic themes that keep reoccurring and most photography is just variations of these themes.

As photographers, while we may constantly interpret themes that have been done previously it is the individual artist who put their own identity on these recurring themes and therefore are able to produce photographic art that is fresh and vibrant."

Everything New is Old Again is on view from October 18th - November 23rd, 2014.

An opening party will be held on November 8th, from 5–8 p.m.

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

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.
