The Coalition of Photographic Arts (CoPA) is proud to present its Inaugural Juried Exhibition at the Walker’s Point Center for the Arts. The mission of the Coalition of Photographic Arts is to develop appreciation, promote growth and support the creation of photography in the Greater Milwaukee Region. Our goal is to cultivate awareness of contemporary photography.

With this show, and the help of our juror Brian Ulrich, we are recognizing the wealth of talent and creative pursuits of photographers in our tri-state area. We are pleased to present a wide range of contemporary photography being made in Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin. We are encouraged by the tremendous response in the number of submissions received. This is further evidence that the community welcomes CoPA’s presence and mission.

Our choice to have Brian Ulrich serve as juror of CoPA’s Inaugural Juried Exhibition was an easy one due to his professional standing not only as an artist but also as an educator. Most of all we were inspired by his advocacy for community among contemporary photographers, particularly in the Midwest.

Our thanks go out to all submitting artists enabling us to present an exhibition of this caliber. We are also grateful to the Walker’s Point Center for the Arts, in partnering with us by allowing us to use their gallery for this exciting event. We are very thankful to Brian Ulrich for lending his vision and support to make this inaugural exhibition a success.
