The Colorado Photographic Arts Center makes a splash with the 56th edition of its annual members' show, this one juried by editor Kat Kiernan of the biannual photography magazine Don’t Take Pictures. The show casts a wide lens on styles, imagery and techniques while showing how CPAC has become a force to be reckoned with on the national photography scene. Kiernan's selections for best in show and two honorable mentions will be announced at the reception; the winning entry becomes part of CPAC’s permanent collection. CPAC director Samantha Johnston will also weigh in with a Director’s Choice award.
