Annual Portfolio Review

The 2011 Annual Portfolio Review Exhibit takes place Tuesday, October 11th from 7-9 p.m. at the Tracy Gee Community Center.

Those HPS members who have previously signed up with the portfolio chairman will bring a themed cohesive body of matted photographic prints to display. On display will be approximately 200 or so images from different members. Exhibitors, arrive early so you will have time to set up before the exhibit begins. This is open to the public so friends and family are invited. Refreshments will be served.

Then, the next day, Wednesday, October 12th beginning 6 p.m. is the Portfolio Review where only the exhibiting participants are invited to return to have several esteemed reviewers from the field examine the portfolios on an individual basis. They will provide valuable feedback and suggestions on the body of work to the exhibitors’ so they may learn from the experience.

This is a meeting all will want to see as it’s unique and a great opportunity to see the hard work and artistry of the exhibitors!

Video from latest HPS field trip

On Saturday, September 24, a few members traveled and met up at the Galveston Railroad Museum located at The Strand. They spent the morning photographing in and out of the rail cars and engines, the interior of the museum, and then finished up in time for lunch at the Star Drug Store, the oldest drug store in Texas.

The video below chronicles the field trip.

Gallery Crawl 2011 was cool!

Due to the typically hot and humid Houston summers, a few members of HPS decided to beat the heat by attending a couple of photography indoor exhibitions at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts (MFAH) and afterwards lunched at Café Express in the basement of the museum.

Afterwards, they made their way to the Houston Center for Photography (HCP) where Jason Dibley, exhibition coordinator, provided them with a personal tour. Dibly explained the process of selection for the presented prints and highlighted some of his favorite works.

Nathalie Brouard, HPS activities coordinator, commented that Bernie Levy entertained fellow members with his own comments while reading the artist statements. Brouard would advise members who are preparing their artist statement for the upcoming October HPS portfolio review to see this exhibition and look at those from the 17 artists in this exhibition. They served as good models for artist statements.

HPS member Dee Zunker also shared some photos from yesterday’s outing. You can view them on her website.

Future HPS outings will be posted soon as they are formalized.
