PR: 2016 in Review

The Center for Photography at Woodstock celebrates the year 2016!

The year 2016 brought significant changes to CPW. The staff, the board, and many volunteers worked hard all year, and CPW has the accomplishments to show for it. We are especially proud of gallery receptions with record-breaking attendance; the Race, Love, and Labor exhibition with visitor numbers that surpassed 3,600; and the completion of soon-to-be-released video documentation on all 2015 and 2016 artists-in-residence. It is with enthusiasm that we look ahead to 2017 – CPW’s 40th anniversary.

We thank those, who made our successes possible.

The Center for Photography at Woodstock to receive $20,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts

Woodstock, NY —National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Jane Chu has approved more than $30 million in grants as part of the NEA’s first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2017. Included in this announcement is an Art Works grant of $20,000 to The Center for Photography at Woodstock for their Woodstock AIR program. The Art Works category focuses on the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and the strengthening of communities through the arts.

“Woodstock AIR is one of CPW’s leading programs, especially due to its focus on artists of color. It addresses a global need within the arts community to provide meaningful opportunities for art making and direct support for artists. Over 100 artists have participated in CPW’s residency program since it was launched in 1999. With public support such as the NEA’s generous grant, CPW can continue to provide this career defining experience,” said CPW’s Executive Director Hannah Frieser.

Book Signing: Rachel Papo

Saturday, August 6 at 2-5pm
Photographer Rachel Papo with authors Ariel Shanberg and Holly Graff

Spend a lovely Saturday afternoon with us to celebrate the publication of Rachel Papo’s book Homeschooled.

While living in Woodstock, NY with her husband and baby daughter, Papo developed her interest in counter-culture education. As criticism of the U.S. education system grew on a national level she decided to explore this controversial topic in depth and challenge her own prejudgments on the issue. In 2011, she began to photograph a small number of families living in the Catskills, who practice homeschooling. Papo focused particularly on the children, in an attempt to capture what she describes as “their spirit, and the meaning of growing up outside the conventional four classroom walls.”
