Portfolio Reviews with X Gallery curator Lisa DuBois
An in person or online Portfolio Review by a qualified curator is the very best way for you to improve your presentation and to get feedback on your work. The review is designed to bring you one step closer toward your goals. There are limitless opportunities regardless of your age, gender, ethnic background or sexual orientation. The quality of your work and your passion is the most important item to focus on.
Reviews are not just for advanced artists; beginners, intermediate and advanced can all benefit from a portfolio review. The real purpose is to understand where you are, and how to move forward in the best way possible. Often artists and photographers do fantastic work but lack the ability to isolate the best work that will get the most attention. In some cases an artist is attached emotionally to the work whereas, a curator will see it from a different perspective.
You will learn how to access the best information for art residences, grants and contests and galleries that are suitable for you. You may be advised to wait and continue to produce work to add before applying for grants. Text this number 504 5771268 for a call back before making an appointment.
