Join Us Online for ‘A Peek Behind the Curtain: Conversations Between Photographers + Their Dealers’

There are no available registration dates at this time.

NOTE: This class will be held in a live, online format using the Zoom platform
Class meets 12-1:30pm ET

This ongoing 90-minute series is geared toward photographers and the curious collector, where we go behind-the-scenes to have a flexible, honest and open conversation between a dealer and one of their artists.  From the gallery’s perspective, topics may range from how the dealer met the photographer and how they now work together, to how the gallery defines its brand, how new talent is discovered to the challenges of running a gallery in today’s world. Of particular interest is what attracted the photographer to the dealer and vice versa!  Collector, advisor and Maine Media faculty member, Alice Sachs Zimet, moderates.
