How To Prepare 

Just do it! Don’t worry if your portfolio isn’t finished or is out of date or you are showing works-in-progress or a sketchbook. Don’t chicken out. Don’t pay attention to any excuses. Just get your work in here. The sole function of these reviews is to help you strengthen your portfolio and your presentation skills. This will be an enjoyable experience and you will be the better for it. 

Bring a notepad and pen - be prepared to take notes

If you are showing digital works, the safest way to show them is bring them on your own laptop

Please join us Thursday night. It will be a great night full wonderful inspiring artwork!

    Not at all what I was expecting. I thought there would be 11 of us, judging from the club attendance. I didn't realize we were feeding into a much larger event, so I thought I was in the wrong place when I arrived! Bad information - I had my pictures on an iPad and needed to have either a laptop or USB drive to connect with the projector. No guidance here as to number of pictures to include and it turns out they wanted 15. In the future, don't assume we know what you know when posting an outside event! Thanks.

    I liked it. Good information, reviewers, and attendees. Fun to see the variety in everyone's work. Diane Polbo (host) said she's looking forward to the next session in the spring.

    No support for photographers. A big show and tell bash. Nothing at all like the description in the emails.

    I'm a photographer and when you say portfolio, what does that actually mean or how do I put one together? I have just photographs. Thank you
