As part of Art in August, for August the Griffin Museum will have free admission (does not include programming) for Winchester Residents with proof of residency.
The Griffin Museum of Photography is pleased to offer eight portfolio review sessions in the morning with Hamidah Glasgow, juror of the 23rd Griffin Museum Juried Exhibition – Ed Friedman Legacy. In the afternoon from 2-5:00, there will be a ‘portfolio share’ where eight artists share their work with each other and Ms. Glasgow in a group setting and get feedback from each other.
The portfolio review with Ms. Glasgow will be 25 minutes long and costs $40, and is available to Griffin Museum members on a first-come, first-served basis. The portfolio share is free and open to Griffin Museum members, but you must reserve your spot in advance. (You can sign up for either or both events below.)
Ms. Glasgow has been the Executive Director and Curator at The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado since 2009. Hamidah holds a master’s degree in humanities with a specialization in visual and gender studies and a bachelor’s degree in philosophy. Hamidah’s contribution to photography has included curatorial projects, national portfolio reviews (FotoFest, Photolucida, Medium, Center, Filter, etc.), professional development education programs, contributions to publications and online magazines and the co-hosting of regional conferences. Hamidah is also a co-founder of the Strange Fire Collective. This collective is dedicated to photo-based work that engages with current social and political forces, highlighting the work of women, people of color, and queer and trans artists, writers, and curators. Glasgow resides in Colorado.
