CoCA members, are you applying for a show or grant, or simply looking for feedback about your work? If so, we’d love for you to join us on May 26, from 2 to 4 pm, for a FREE member benefit portfolio review! Only 40 spots are available, so please RSVP as soon as possible.
This is a free event for CoCA members at the $45 (Artist) level or higher. The Portfolio Review will be held on the east side of the Tashiro Kaplan (TK) building at 115 Prefontaine Pl. S (opposite side of building CoCA is located in). We will be at the door to let you in and direct you, but once inside the main lobby, the VCR room is the first room on the left. Tables with reviewers will be set up, and all paid members may start signing up for reviewers as soon as 1:50pm. Come early; all review meetings are first come, first served.
Digital and print portfolios of your artwork are welcome, as are artist statements if you have them ready to share and there is time. We strongly recommend you have all files and images ready in a folder on your computer or a physical portfolio prepared for the reviewer ahead of time. WiFi will be available for online portfolios and websites, but be prepared with a folder of images on your laptop in case of unexpected technology challenges.
Each review session will last 15 minutes. Depending on the number of CoCA members participating, you may have more than one opportunity to sit with various reviewers. We guarantee one reviewer minimum and will try our best to fit in as many reviews as we can within the time allotted.
The reviewers are all local art experts, including:
- June Sekiguchi, independent curator and a founding member of the artEAST Art Center and METHOD Gallery
- Ruthie V, a painter whose work has been exhibited at the Bellevue Arts Museum, the Bellingham Arts Museum, and CORE Gallery, and founder of the Seattle Artist League
- Katy Hannigan, Program Manager at Artist Trust, supporting artists in their creative and professional endeavors
- Marge Levy, ceramicist, former executive director of the Pilchuck Glass School, and first woman president of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts
- Suzanne Walker, PhD, a lecturer at the Seattle Artist League and grants expert
