The Gallery 145 took a little hiatus this past year but we are back in full swing and are excited about the print swap opportunities that await us! We haven't been completely dormant, just not very vocal. Sorry about that..
Last October, The Gallery 145 was present at the 2015 Atlanta Celebrates Photography Portfolio Reviews. Here are a few photos from the swap!
Registration is open for ACP16 and you should absolutely attend! You just might see us there this year but with a slightly different format and an actual slot in the program. We're moving up in the world..
In April of this year, we partnered with The Light Factory in Charlotte, NC to facilitate a print swap at the conclusion of their first ever 2016 Portfolio Throwdown. This portfolio review was open to college undergrads and graduate students in the Carolinas. Many of the founders of The Gallery 145 served as portfolio reviewers and we were all so impressed by much of the work we saw.
Our big takeaways from those events were rooted in how to make the swap more engaging for participants. We are drafting changes now that will be implemented at future swaps so that everyone feels great about the new art they acquired as well as the new homes that their work found.
This is it for now however, be on the look out for news of our upcoming events this fall! It won't be long we promise.
