Meet The Curators 2020, virtual portfolio review

NEW DATE! Meet the Curators moves online! August 1, 2020

Registration is NOW closed.
*See below for pre-meeting rquirements

Pro Arts is proud to announce our 9th annual Meet the Curators event where artists meet with prominent gallerists and curators for 20-minute, one-on-one portfolio reviews to gain valuable insight and feedback on their work. This is our most popular event with many artists participating year after year. Many great connections are made here; you never know what they will lead to. Two years ago Pro Arts member Juliet Martin reviewed with a curator who introduced her to a NYC gallery owner and last year Juliet had a solo show there! So don’t miss this opportunity to advance YOUR artistic career.

In addition to the reviews, at the end of the day the curators will be choosing their top-pick portfolios and those artists will be invited to participate in the prestigious annual Curators Choice exhibition.
