Critical Conversations with Parrish Dobson
March 28 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$15
In art school, critiques are a frequent and important part of growth. But after school, artists often create in isolated environments and yearn for feedback on new work. The Griffin’s critical conversations are safe, honest, and constructive opportunities to share work-in-progress with other photographers.
Bring your work in process to share with facilitator Parrish Dobson and other attendees, your questions and enough photographs to provide information for discussion with the group. The number of photographs you bring will vary depending on where you are with your project. Some at the beginning of a new project may have only 5 photographs, but please bring no more than 10. This is not a traditional one-on-one portfolio review. Come prepared to state how you would like Parrish and the group to direct their focus.
