CPA is pleased to announce this year’s International Juried Exhibition juror: Paul Kopeikin, founder and owner of Kopeikin Gallery. The Kopeikin Gallery operated in Los Angeles between 1991 and 2020, closing their physical space just before the pandemic. During that time Kopeikin Gallery enjoyed a stellar reputation for showing vintage, classic, and contemporary photography and in its later years also painting, sculpture, etc. The Gallery participated in international art fairs and Mr. Kopeikin kept a busy schedule of reviews, interviews, panel discussions, art fairs, and other events related primarily to the medium of photography and the business of art. This schedule continues as Mr. Kopeikin transitioned to become a private art dealer. Throughout his public and private lives, Mr. Kopeikin has maintained an eye for the very best of what’s out there in every medium, but especially photography, and what’s popular in the marketplace. He is known for his unvarnished opinions, backed up by over thirty years working in the field, not only of an artist’s work, but of an artist’s life.
Paul Kopeikin of Kopeikin Gallery brings a deep understanding and broad appreciation of diverse photographic styles, genres and mediums to CPA’s 2022 International Juried Exhibition.
