The portfolio review session provides artists with an opportunity to get feedback on their work from industry professionals. Feedback may relate to aesthetics or general advice about career management. Reviewers include David Xu Borgonjon, Jasmin Hernandes, Roddy Schrock, and Wendy Vogel.

Each session is 25 minutes. Artists are required to bring in their work on their own laptop, iPad or other portable electronic device. We will provide access to power outlets if needed to charge the devices.

There is a limited number of time slots and they are assigned on a first come, first served basis. The first review is free; if you would like to sign up for a second review, the fee is $20 cash on the day of the event.
