Annual Fund 2017 | Connecting Through Images





WHAT A YEAR! In 2017, your contributions and energy created connections that brought the power of images to our community: photographers, photography enthusiasts, and everyone who loves images. Today, we are asking you to join together to support this dynamic community with an end-of-year donation to the New Orleans Photo Alliance annual fund.

Images change our perspectives and inspire us to action. Your support of the New Orleans Photo Alliance will directly impact our ability to continue to create the connections, programs, and experiences that are essential to expanding our community of image makers and image lovers. We need your help to share the photographs that change the way people see and feel the world around them.

Please consider making a gift to NOPA this holiday season. Every contribution, regardless of the amount, will result in connections that support the power of the image and our ability to support the photographic community. Thank you for your commitment to the New Orleans Photo Alliance. We wish you a joyous holiday season and look forward to seeing you and your work in 2018.

SHARING WORK Connecting artists to each other and the public is central to our mission, and your support today ensures we can continue to share bold, beautiful, and sometimes challenging work. In 2017, NOPA exhibited the work of hundreds of photographers–our members, grant winners, and artists selected by nationally recognized curators and jurors in every genre and photographic process. In addition to the exhibitions in our own New Orleans gallery and on our website, we partner with venues across the community to connect artists with available spaces to show their work. In 2018, look for more opportunities for artists to share work in the NOPA gallery through portfolio exchanges, member pushpin and pop-up exhibits, and other events.

CREATING COMMUNITY NOPA is an artist-driven organization creating a community of image makers and image lovers. We connect artists with each other. We connect collectors with photographs. We connect the community with images that change perspectives and inspire lives. These connections were made through a robust exhibition schedule; a $10,600 grant program supporting both fine art and documentary photographers; a community photo program with seniors; monthly educational programs; artist talks in galleries and studios across the community; UnderExposed, the regional showcase of photographic art; and, of course, PhotoNOLA, the festival of photography produced by NOPA each December.
