Kate Fraser to Review Artist Portfolios at CHAW

By Editorial Team on October 13, 2010

Capitol Hill Icon | PORTFOLIO REVIEWS |

Attention artists, here is a chance to have your work assessed and reviewed by a professional in the art field.  Coming this Saturday October 16th, the Capitol Hill Art League has organized a portfolio review day from 12pm to 5pm at CHAW.

Kate Fraser, owner of the Fraser Gallery in Bethesda, will conduct portfolio reviews.  Each participating artist may bring at least 5 pieces; no more than 20 (even if they are photographs).  The cost to participate is ony $20 for CHAL members and $30 for non-members.    Each participant will be assigned a specific time slot for an individual review so that you can have an personal conversation with Kate Fraser about your art direction.  To sign up, you can call CHAW during office hours 202-547-6839.

Ms. Fraser will review your portfolio and offer guidance and practical information on your career as a fine artist.  For 15 minutes, one of the area’s most knowledgeable and experienced arts professionals will answer questions about the direction specifically of your work, pricing, presentation, approaching galleries, entering juried competitions, marketing, getting attention from art critics, or almost anything else you can think of.

To clear up any confusion, this session is designed to discuss the development and direction of your art portfolio on the business side.  This session is not an art critique of the artistic merits of your individual pieces.  If you wish to participate in a critique of your art pieces, then Lisa Semerad’s Nov 13th seminar, 1-4pm at CHAW, on critiquing art is for you.

Ms. Fraser, an accomplished photographer, has over 20 years of experience as a photographer, curator, gallery Director, judge, and educator. Her work has been exhibited in numerous galleries, museums and art centers both in Europe and the United States and has won many awards. Ms. Fraser is one of the most highly collected photographers in the DC region.

CHAW is conveniently located 2 blocks south of Eastern Market Metro station on the northwest corner of 7th & G streets SE.
