An SFCP "Creative Edge" conference

Portfolio Critiques have proven to be one of the most effective ways to get insiders advice and valued opinions on your work. SFCP is pleased to offer a friendly platform for exchange of ideas, critical advice, and networking for the Creative Edge participants. Many picture professionals representing different aspects of the field, such as gallerists, curators, publishing representatives, and esteemed consultants will be among those to offer their advice to participants in one-on-one twenty-minute meetings. Registrants will have the opportunity to enter their Reviewer preferences on-line. Reviews will be then be determined by a computerized lottery system.

Friday, September 15, 10:00am-3:30pm; JPD Room, IHM Retreat Center, Santa Fe
