The Annual gathering of AIPAD photography galleries and dealers has found a new home and it is a knockout.

Situated at Pier 94 on the West Side of NYC at the Hudson River and 54th street, the new venue affords much more light and space than the previous location at the Park Avenue Armory.

With heavy international dealer representation as well as galleries from around North America, the expanded show over the next few days is a collector’s dream.

Vintage and contemporary works truly dazzle and at times overwhelm the viewer with photographic excellence. (Read more below)

unnamed-7

 If you  will be able to travel to Atlanta in October, Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) is holding its annual photography festivities again this fall. Included is a great opportunity to have your portfolio work reviewed. Apply today!

The ACP 2014 Portfolio Review and Walk offers artists the opportunity to meet with highly respected curators, dealers, editors, and agency representatives from across the United States and beyond. The Portfolio Walk (following the review sessions) gives participating photographers the opportunity to present their work to the general public at an evening reception, open to all.

Sponsored in part by Turner Broadcasting and their “Turner Voices” initiative, 17 reviewers and 51 artists will meet on Saturday, October 11th, 2014. Each photographer will meet privately with at least five reviewers for twenty minutes each.

Anyone can apply for this excellent learning opportunity but it comes with a couple of caveats. First, because of there regularly being a surplus of applicants, not all those who apply will be able to take part. Secondly, if you happen to be accepted, there is a charge of $300. Considering the potential exposure and networking opportunities on top of what one might learn, it’s still very much worth it to those who are dedicated. Make sure to act fast as the deadline for submission is July 27th.
