CEPA Gallery is pleased to present, Visions: A Photographic Journey in Social Justice, a selection of photographs taken by emerging photographers from many of Buffalo’s social justice organizations. An opening reception will take place on Friday, January 26, 2018 from 7-10pm.


Last summer, Open Buffalo offered local social justice allies 15 scholarships for VISIONS, an 8-week photography class through CEPA Gallery. This hands-on course was designed for community-minded partners of the Open Buffalo network. It covered the technical basics of taking a powerful photograph (** using any type of camera **), and inspired participants to unleash their inner creativity to build a better Buffalo.

The VISIONS course expanded participants’ visual communications skills and strengthen their capacity to engage broad and diverse audiences in their critical missions. It will also provide a platform for organizers to uncover and elevate important stories within our community.

The program culminates in a 1-week gallery showing and a reception/silent auction, where photos from each participant are sold to raise funds for the Open Buffalo Emerging Leaders program.

The silent auction will take place on Friday, February 2, 2018, 6:00-8:00pm in the 3rd floor passageway gallery that will support Open Buffalo’s Emerging Leaders Program.
