I learned over the weekend that my entry, Gated Mobilhome Community, has been accepted into the iWorld juried exhibit sponsored by The Colorado Photographic Arts Center in Denver, CO. The exhibit was juried by Chuck Mobley, Associate Director, San Francisco Camerawork, and Brian Paul Clamp, owner and director of ClampArt Gallery in New York City. Entries were judged for one of two separate show to be held at CPAC and the Denver Library. My print is included in the CPAC show from January 10 – February 10, 2012. The Library show happens from January – March 2012.
The theme for this show:
It’s official – technological innovations like the iPhone have revolutionized visual communications, spurred uprisings, and sustained occupations in a new world inundated with instruments of invention, intrusion, and instant gratification. Digital media have changed the ways in which we interact with our environment, our governments, and ourselves. Photographers and bystanders alike record events that sustain, fascinate, inspire, and intimidate us. iWorld invites you to respond to the “i-zation” of our culture by sharing your best interpretation, inspiration, innovation, or illustration of the world that your see.

I only just recently learned about the CPAC. They are one of only a couple of organizations in Colorado that provide a comprehensive program of exhibitions, classes, and related events dedicated solely to photography. In late August of this year, CPAC merged with another organization (Working With Artist), and have been working to create new opportunities for photographers. Rupert Jenkins has been named Executive Director and will lead the organization going forward. I knew Rupert in San Francisco when we exhibited together at the now defunt Eye Gallery back int the 80’s. He went on to positions at San Francisco Camerawork, but I eventually lost track of him and his work. I stumbled upon his Facebook page one day a few months ago and began to once again follow him. He is a great guy and I hope CPAC does well under his leadership.
