the portfolio review, a confession

I have to admit  the entire reason i got involved with doing portfolio reviews  was so I could meet  more creatives.  It was just a happy accident that everyone else benefits  from it too.  Its  really the perfect balance for me,  I get to call and meet these creatives and at the same time so does everyone else.  OK, done on the confession.  Last week ASMPNY  hosted the annual commercial review that i have helped run for a number of years.  Roy Hsu, Sarah Small, Jason Gardner, Matt Greenslade, Michelle  Kwaka, Susan MayTell,  Christine Austin, and others over the years  have helped put this review together  and it is a growing success.   Thank you to Tribeca Skyline Studio last week, it is an amazing space and for sure played  a major part  in how the event ran with all of their support.  Here are a  couple of reviewers that posted  after the event.

           Thanks again to everyone who has donated time over the years  to be a reviewer at the portfolio reviews!

What a great nite  - three choices of deviled eggs, nice beer, friendly staff, got a chance to say hi to Mark Seliger who i haven't talked to in ten years.  A number of colleagues, friends, and artists were all there donating their time and their prints and it always makes me happy seeing the community getting together to support our arts. I had two prints available at the auction and I am  very flattered by all of the bidding  that went on to get these two images.  It was a great event, looks like it raised quite a bit of money for the scholarships,  so  congratulations  to YPA  for a great event!
