Portfolio Review for Membership Is Back

We are very pleased to announce that Soho Photo Gallery has reopened and is reviewing portfolios for membership.

In keeping with our COVID-19 protocols, we are limiting in-gallery participation by committee members. When you enter the gallery, please remember to wear a mask and fill in the contact tracing form.

Talk with Us
Before you apply for membership, we suggest that you come to the gallery and talk with our members. Stop by any time during our open hours (see Application Process) when one of our members will be happy to speak with you about membership or contact our Membership Chair, Linda Hacker  using the form below.

Membership
Membership enables you to exhibit your work throughout the year and requires your participation in the running of the gallery.

Responsibilities include:
– Participating in ongoing service commitments, some of which can be conducted remotely.
– Sitting, or arranging for sitting in order to keep the gallery open, especially during the month you’re exhibiting.
– Framing, hanging, and removing your show.
– Arranging for the transport of your work to and from the gallery

Who Should Apply?
We are looking for artists with a passion for photography, a clear and meaningful photographic vision, an appreciation for the craft, and a willingness to participate in the operation of the gallery. We are open to new ideas. Some of our members strive to re-imagine the meaning, value, and boundaries of photography, others to perfect a particular thread or technique.

The Application Process
The downloadable application – PRINT MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION – includes detailed information about what exactly should be in your portfolio, about your artist statement, and about fees and dues. Portfolios are reviewed by the Portfolio Review Committee starting at 10:00 am on the first Saturday of every month (see dates below). Please have your portfolio in the gallery before 10:00.

The gallery is open to the public Friday–Sunday, 1:00–6:00 pm. You may bring your portfolio directly to the gallery, or have it shipped.  If you ship it, arrange for it to be delivered on the day the gallery is open. Indicate, on the outside of your portfolio “ATTN: Linda Hacker, PRC.”
