Exhibit Night

This is the evening where all the members who have put together a portfolio can exhibit their work. This program is open to the public so bring and invite family, friends, neighbors, relatives, etc. There should be approximately 200 plus images based on the current number of confirmed participants. The members who are exhibiting should plan to arrive by 6:30 p.m. so that they will have time to set up their portfolio display. Please remember to bring your artist statement to go with your portfolio exhibit. This should be a fun evening and there will be plenty of time to ask the various exhibitors questions about their work. Refreshments will also be served.

Review Night

This evening is for the Portfolio Review participants ONLY. This is NOT open to the public or the general membership. Please arrive at the Tracy Gee Community Center by 6 p.m. (by 6:15 p.m. at the latest) as numbers will be drawn for the order in which you will sign up for the various reviewers. Please look over the brief biography/profile of each reviewer you were sent so you can better select someone who will be best suited for your work and intent. We are on a very tight schedule so please come prepared so the selection procedure can move along smoothly.
