The Exhibits Program offers CPS members the opportunity to have their work displayed in a public venue. We collaborate with local libraries, institutions, galleries and businesses to create exhibits that fit their theme and share our love of photography.

Exhibits are announced on the website and in the Weekly Snapshot. Entries are judged by a trained Photographic Society of America (PSA) professional, with the highest-scoring images being selected for the exhibit.

We are always excited to work with new venues. If you know of a venue interested in an event, please email the Exhibits Chair with the venue’s contact at
