Just found out about this cool photography show hosted by the Colorado Photographic Arts Center (CPAC), running March 29 - May 12:

Punk Passage: California and Beyond, 1977-1981 will be shown at CPAC alongside Mining Denver’s Underground Rock Photography: seldom seen scenes in local music, an exhibition of new Denver music photography curated by Cinthea Fiss.

There is more information on their website here.  CPAC is located at 445 South Saulsbury St., Lakewood, CO 80226.  The Gallery is open Tuesday- Saturday 12-5:30pm.  There seems to be no admission, just donations.  Also, if you are a member, CPAC is hosting a Members Only Preview Reception on Thursday March 29 from 5-6pm.  The reception will be open to the public at 6pm.  It will run from 6-9pm, featuring live music by Fritz Fox of The Mutants.

Also, there is a special event on Saturday the 31st at 1pm, where the photographers are giving a presentation about their photos and experiences.  This costs $10 ($5 for members).  If you want to receive a portfolio critique as well, the admission goes up to $25 ($15 for members).  What a deal!  Here is a little info about the special event from the CPAC site:

Punk Passage photographer Ruby Ray joins curator/photographer Richard Peterson and curator/media artist Cinthea Fiss for an afternoon of presentations related to their punk rock photography and experiences with the San Francisco and Denver music scenes. Photographers showing in the Mining Denver Rock Photography show, curated by Cinthea Fiss at CPAC, will also be present to talk about their work. Attendees are invited to have their own music photography portfolios reviewed by the speakers after the presentations (Limit 12, surcharge applies).

Information about the Gallery Talk can be found here.

I am really looking forward to seeing some great works about the punk rock culture.
