Summit, NJ February 18, 2008: On April 4-6, 2008, the Visual Arts Center of New
Jersey will host the largest Photographic Educational Conference in the state.
Utilizing the Art Center's state-of-the-art facility, an exciting weekend
of workshops, speakers, portfolio reviews as well as a vendor fair is planned.
Workshops presented at the conference will run the gamut from camera and light
fundamentals to fine art printing and scanning. Lectures will be given by some

On Friday April 4th from 7- 9 PM, participants will be able to listen to keynote
speaker, Stephen Perloff, founder and editor of Photo Review Magazine. His lecture,
Photographic Truth in the Digital Age, addresses how we view reality and truthfulness
in photography when, through digital advancement, images can so easily be manipulated.



On Saturday, the conference is running workshops, lectures and portfolio reviews
utilizing the Art Center's nine art studios. The day will culminate in a
lively panel discussion on contemporary issues in photography including panelists
from all segments of the industry moderated by George Schaub, editor of Shutterbug

Panelists include Ted Harris, Editor, View Camera Magazine; Joel M. Smith, Curator
of Photography, Princeton University Art Museum; Donald Lokuta, Art Professor,
Kean University; and Diana Edkins, Director of Exhibitions and Limited-Edition
Photographs for Aperture Foundation.



A highlight of the conference is a slide lecture and book signing by George Tice,
one of the best known fine-art photographers in the nation. Making photographs
for over 40 years, Mr. Tice's prints are in many museums including the Museum
of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Metropolitan Museum, where
he had a one-man show in 1972. His photographs have been shown all over the world.
The lecture is scheduled for Saturday, April 5th from 4-6pm. A book signing, which
is open to the public, follows and will end at 6:45PM. This is a rare opportunity
to learn from a master in the photography field and all those interested in attending
should register early to reserve a spot.



Many events taking place at the conference are free to attend. On Sunday April
6th, an exhibitor fair of photography equipment and supply manufacturers will
be opened to the public from 10am-6pm. This day also includes free events such
as darkroom demos, tours and mini workshops by vendors. To become a vendor, contact
Event Producer Nancy Ori at nancyori@comcast.net.



The mission of the conference is to create a central presence at the Visual Arts
Center of New Jersey for the study and practice of photographic art within the
state. The Art Center is committed to teaching traditional darkroom photography,
an important part of the fine art experience, as well as providing courses in
state-of-the-art digital advances. The Art Center houses digital labs and a traditional
wet darkroom. It offers a wide range of classes, workshops, and open studios.
