The Galleries | We have three photography galleries in our Fort Collins location that are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday. The Main Gallery exhibits 10 international group exhibitions per year with 50+ international artists in each show. The Gould and North Galleries exhibit 10-15 solo exhibitions per year with the goal of gaining exposure for talented emerging artists. Each exhibit is complimented by an online gallery featuring links to our artist’s websites. Admission is free.
Calls For Entry | Our thirteen years of experience offering Calls for Entry has strengthened our reputation for coordinating professional exhibitions. The Center offers ten calls for entry per year, open to international photographic artists. Every call for entry produces a brick and mortar exhibition and supporting online exhibition. All genres, subjects, capture types and photographic processes both historic and modern are eligible for our juried exhibitions. We welcome photographic artists from across the globe to submit their work. To see our currently open calls and juror information, please visit our homepage.
A testimonial from one of our artists who was chosen in the jury process, Bear Kirkpatrick.
“The Center for Fine Art Photography have done something wonderful for me–they have become a conduit through which my work has been exposed to a whole new level of international awareness, and through which I have come to meet members of my own tribe. Their juried competitions have availed the chance to show my work to internationally renowned jurors, and through their exhibitions I have been able to meet those jurors and the other participating artists. This has not only increased my visibility as an artist, and boosted my confidence, but more importantly it has connected me directly to the international and contemporary community of photographic artists and people who love the photographic arts. I feel as though they were the first to take me in out of the cold, give me a blanket, a bowl of stew, a place to rest for a moment. I will be eternally thankful for their support and good cheer.” – Bear Kirkpatrick
