Current Exhibition

The Lightness of Being

Featured photogher Joan Velazquez wrote about the theme of this exhibit in her Artist Statement:

"Light gives life to inanimate objects in varying degrees of brightness and color. Acting as a mirror, our inner light reflects and illuminates our state of being; The essence of this light is what I strive to reveal in my photography."

The exhibit is on view from April 5th - May 18th, 2014.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 12th (5-8 p.m.) We are a stop on the Second Saturday 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.
