“CPAC’s monthly portfolio reviews are an excellent opportunity to get your work in front of Denver’s best photographers in an open, informal setting that will bring you into a deeper relationship with not only with your own work, but with the work and process of the other participating artists as well. Non-photographers are welcome to watch and learn alongside the portfolio review participants.” Ken Hamel, Denverarts.org, March 2012
