    These shows, usually held in March and October of each year, also introduced OCPA as an integral part of the art, civic and social community. Members' images, exhibited for public view, continue to heighten public appreciation of the abilities, creativity and dedication OCPA members.

    The main purpose for the exhibits is to show the photographic artistry of the camera club members. Between 20 and 30 members exhibit a total of approximately 200 images during the 4-day shows. Members of all skill levels are encouraged to share their works. Any sales that are made are a bonus.
