Curatorial Portfolio Review
Wednesday, March 14 | 5 to 7 PM
Registration Fee: $15

As a service to our Artist Friends community, we invite you to a fun, "speed date" style Curatorial Portfolio Review on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 from 5 to 7 PM. You may bring your whole portfolio or just the work you plan to submit for the Friends' Annual Juried Exhibition, and the curatorial department along with outside curators will give you an inside perspective and aid your professional development. The "speed date" style of this curatorial review will offer multiple opinions in a quick progression. 

You may bring as many works as you like, however, depending on turnout, time may be limited. We suggest you narrow it down to your best works.

You can bring your work in any format, however, choose the format that best shows off your work. It can be the work itself, a laptop, a video, etc. 

We review from 5 to 7 pm, however, the last review will be at 6:30.

This review is not mandatory to submit to the show.
