Join us on this specially designed 3 hour gallery tour in Chelsea. Last chance to catch some important shows before they are taken down for Spring openings. There are now over 300 galleries in Chelsea. Ten of the top galleries who regularly show photography will be selected according to the current show they have on exhibit.
Led by Claudia Sohrens*, we will have comments and conversations, sometimes joined by a gallery representative, about the images and current trends. After reviewing the new winter/spring photography shows, 10 will be selected to show the diversity of the new season's shows.
Note, this is not a formal structured workshop or seminar but rather a new format to spark thinking for new creative ideas and encourage dialogue.
This is limited to 10 people due to the size of many galleries. At the end of the formal tour some may want to visit other galleries and continue the conversation .
