The Future of the Center For Fine Art Photography

It’s an exciting time for The Center for Fine Art Photography. A lot is changing — and a lot is staying the same.

 

First, here’s what’s changing: The Center is moving from our longtime home at 400 North College Avenue into administrative offices. While our home base will be smaller, it will be more centrally located in the heart of the creative district,. We are also becoming more visible & strategic by partnering with other brick and mortar galleries. We’ve been here for over nine years but find the need to adapt to the new ways the public views and consumes art.

 

The Center is evolving, providing our audience with stimulating, more fluid experiences for viewing photography. This year, we’ll be hosting eight exhibitions at various locations around the city of Fort Collins.

 

We’re evolving our business model. It’s a little bit thrilling and a little bit scary. Over the past few years, we’ve witnessed changes in the world of fine art photography. In order to remain relevant, we knew we needed to be bold in our approach and reinvention.

 

Now for what isn’t changing: what you can expect from The Center for Fine Art Photography.

 

The Center will still be bringing you provocative and thoughtfully curated exhibitions. We’re still committed to promoting a broader understanding of photography’s visual, emotional, and social impact in society. We’ll continue to offer free admission to our internationally acclaimed exhibitions. We’ll still provide opportunities for the public to meet and interact with emerging and renowned photographers at our artist’s talks and public receptions.

 

By evolving our model, we’re able to beef up our programming. Programming takes an exhibition to a deeper level. It’s one thing to view the work of legendary and emerging photographers hanging together on a wall. It’s quite another to engage in immersive and educational events and workshops, where a stronger understanding and appreciation of the art form is nurtured. Programming gives the community an opportunity to do a deep dive by comparing and contrasting historic and contemporary photography; to see the influences of these groundbreaking pioneers on subsequent generations of photographers, and to kindle a flame in those who have yet to embrace the photographic arts.

 

We’re developing more opportunities for engagement and education. We’re building our community and embracing all the possibilities that come with our evolution.

 

The Center for Fine Art Photography is much more than a gallery. It’s more than evocative images on display. It’s experiential. And those experiences leave a mark on the heart, and the mind, and the soul.
