Portfolio Reviews with X Gallery curator Lisa DuBois

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 key to your success.

Reviews are not just for advanced artists and photographers.  

 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.

Your Artwork is Your Life
Each painting portrays a part of the artist themselves and each one should be documented for the best possible representation.

Why should my artwork be photographed?
You may want to reproduce your work and sell them as limited edition reproductions.
 If you are applying to any museum, gallery, grant, or artist in residence you will want to have the best files of your work.

 I have a great cell phone isn’t that good enough? 
 Cell phones can’t usually create large files which are recommended for serious archiving of your work 

 What else can I do with a high-resolution file? 
 Make posters, postcards and use for reproduction purposes and for archival. 

 What else can I do to document my work?
 Get a flash drive and put your work on it so that it can be plugged into any computer at any time.
 When something has this much value it is wise to have some sort of back up. With this image, you forever have it digitally stored 
 Create a slideshow presentation.
