Support CEPA

Michelle Obama - Community Arts and After School Programs - Arts Education - CEPA Gallery - Buffalo NY

Our promise to the community is to lower barriers to fine and exploratory arts by providing free exhibitions, affordable educational opportunities, and support for artists of all levels. CEPA’s gallery spaces are open to the public at no cost. CEPA offers photography education for students as young as five through workshops, long-term educational programs, classes, and one-on-one tutorials. We bring traditional photography into the community through initiatives like the Mobile Darkroom and provide low-cost access to our darkroom, digital lab, and photo studio. 

CEPA is supported by dedicated patrons, artists, collectors, and community members. We would not exist without your generosity. We invite you to join us by visiting our gallery, becoming a member, taking a class, making a monetary donation, or donating your time by joining our Board of Directors or Committees.
