CoPA Monthly Member Meeting – Work in Progress
February 11 @ 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Monthly CoPA Meeting
Please note the location of the meeting is Transfer Pizza at 101 West Mitchell Street.
5:30P Schmooze | 6:15P CoPA Updates | 7P Speakers
Join us on Tuesday, February 11, as CoPA members Cindy Hansen, Elliot Stevenson and Lew Cadkin discuss their project-based work; inspiration and process. Cindy, Elliot and Lew will welcome questions and dialog about their projects.
Project-based photography requires not only vision, but a high degree of dedication and willingness to experiment and fail along the way. The result is a richer, more complex and thought-provoking body of work.
We plan to hold similar meetings throughout the year to highlight member’s work in a positive learning environment, and as a way to get to know one another better. Member Spotlight is a new program we’ll introduce at the March 10 meeting. Each month one or two members will show their work, be it work in progress, a completed series, etc. and they will be asked 5 questions.
Sample member Spotlight questions:
- Tell us about your development as a photographer (e.g. how and why you started photographing, how your work has changed, favorite subjects and projects, current interests, etc.
- Are there photographic moments that stand out in your experience?
- How has photography changed your perception of and interaction with your surroundings?
- Choose five photos that might best represent your work as a photographic artist and comment on why they were chosen.
- What recommendations might you have for an inquisitive novice?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to discuss your work at a meeting.
Consider ordering your Transfer pizzas “family style” from the bar. The pizzas are to die for and you may want to try more than one kind. (Plus it’ll make it a little easier for the server who will look after us!)
If you are attending CoPA meetings and events, be sure to pull out your camera and get some shots! All photos can be submitted via this Dropbox link. Seriously, please. Someone take pictures. We are a photography organization for the love of Mike.
CoPA members, students and first time guests are free. All other $10 at the door.
