ABOUT | The March PhotoVox event is a collaborative panel with guest speakers Arielle Myers, Chief Curator at Union Hall, and Mike McClung, Gallery Director and Co-owner at Michael Warren Contemporary. This event is dedicated to helping photographers prepare to take their work to the next level. Creating a strong body of work is the first step, but what do you do once you’re ready to show it? Our speakers will offer advice on steps you can take now. We’ll also discuss longterm strategies; what types of exposure are best for your work and how to work with galleries or consultants. This event gives you a chance to start a dialogue with two art representatives before you go out on your own.
