From exhibition submission to gallery wall, presentation is vital to the way your work is received. How do you make the best possible print? What kind of mounting and framing is most appropriate? What is archival? What do you ask for in a photo finishing lab? How do you approach a gallery? How do you prepare for portfolio reviews?
Join CPAC Director Rupert Jenkins, Reed Art & Imaging, General Manager Gary Reed, and photographer Jessie Paige at this special Gallery Standards seminar. Using examples from our current juried exhibition, One by One, and the instructors’ own collections, this seminar will cover preservation and conservation standards, options for display, mounting and matting, and best practices for approaching a gallery. If you value and care for your own and others’ photography, this seminar is for you.
