Ann M. Jastrab is the Executive Director at the Center for Photographic Art (CPA) in Carmel, California. CPA strives to advance photography through education, exhibition and programming. These regional traditions evolved out of CPA's predecessor, the renowned Friends of Photography. While respecting these West Coast traditions, CPA is also at the vanguard of the future of photographic imagery.
Before taking the helm at CPA, Ann was the gallery manager at Scott Nichols Gallery and also the gallery director at RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco for 10 years. Ann has curated many shows in California while simultaneously jurying, curating, and organizing numerous exhibitions for other national and international venues. While being a champion of artists, she created a thriving artist-in-residence program at RayKo where multiple residents including Meghann Riepenhoff, Carlos Javier Ortiz, Kathya Marie Landeros, and McNair Evans all received Guggenheim Fellowships.
