November 15th, New Orleans: Lecture by MVS “YOUR EXHIBITION, THE VENUE and ITS AUDIENCE”

New Orleans Photo Alliance
Lecture by Mary Virginia Swanson:
YOUR EXHIBITION, THE VENUE and ITS AUDIENCE: Considerations for Planning a Successful Exhibition

Saturday, November 15, 2014, 2:00-4:00 pm

“Exhibiting your work is an exciting experience for all artists. But until you have the opportunity to present your work to the public, how can you understand the strategic and practical steps towards mounting a successful exhibition?

Whether your exhibition is being hosted at a public space or private venue, all artists should consider the audience that venue engages and work strategically to ensure a strong collaboration with its community.

In this illustrated seminar, Mary Virginia Swanson helps artists understand the issues of presentation, publicity, audience engagement through educational offerings, the value of producing an accompanying online/print publication and much more.

Artists attending this presentation will gain a broad awareness of the exhibition experience.”

Free and open to the public.

“For more than thirty-five years, Shelby Lee Adams has been making powerful and honest photographs of the hollow dwellers of eastern Kentucky. These images described by Adams as “collaborations” come from mutual trust and respect between the photographer and his subjects.

Adams was born and raised in Hazard, Kentucky. His insider knowledge and connection to the people and culture of that region is reflected in his compassionate photographs that expose the depth and character of a disappearing lifestyle. ”
