TEEN PHOTO, a series of free classes for teenagers from 13–18 years old, is a unique opportunity for young photographers come together to share their passion for photography. They’ll receive technical advice, constructive feedback on their photos, and get an opportunity to spend some time with other teens that share the same interest.

In this unique workshop, participants will be introduced to the camera-based Xerox flat plate process, learn about its history, and gain hands-on experience crafting carbon based photographic images. Last chance to take this special workshop with electrophotography artist Tom Carpenter on Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.

Seventh and eighth grade Buffalo Public Schools students from the My Brother’s Keeper program recently collaborated with teaching artists from the CEPA Gallery. The artists joined us at McKinley High School and provided twelve of our MBK scholars with a creative opportunity to engage in hands-on photography instruction and the use of digital cameras to document their fieldwork experiences. We began our project with a workshop led by teaching artist Christian Coronado.

CEPA Gallery is excited to announce a new initiative giving a Western New York artist the freedom to engage the community with a two year curatorial fellowship at CEPA’s Big Orbit Project Space. The inaugural curatorial fellow, Buffalo-based artist Megan Metté, will use her first year to mount two exhibitions that foreground and question our perception of the world around us.
