November 2-December 21, 2019 From the Center for Photographic Art: "Thanks to juror Paula Tognarelli, the executive director of the Griffin Museum of Photography, for judging our 2019 International Exhibition at CPA. With nearly 2,300 images submitted to the competition, she had the very challenging task of selecting just 45 images for our gallery exhibition and 45 for the online exhibition."
I'm pleased to say that my image, "Three Leaves" was an award winner, and in the final selection of galleried images.

JANUARY 21, 2016 I’ll be giving a talk at the Center for Photographic Art from 6:30 to 8 PM. (I don’t expect the talk to last all 90 minutes, so there will be plenty of time for conversation.)
“Yeah…But is It ART?” “Photography as art has been on a path of accelerating change for the past century, and there is no slowdown in sight. From Alfred Stieglitz to Ansel Adams, Cindy Sherman through Kate Steciw, on into the cell-phone age, looking at and understanding photographs requires keeping up with the pace. CPA member/photographer Tracy Valleau has recently investigated all this, and will share his journey of discovery from modernism to contemporary art as it applies to photography. In this illustrated talk, Tracy will offer some basic concepts and tools to use when viewing photographs as art.”
