The Photo Review Benefit Auction Preview Exhibition and Benefit Auction 11/21/2009
I write a column just about every other week for RedDogJournal.com, and for the edition just published (click here to read), I included this info: On Friday and Saturday, 11/20 and 11/21/2009, there will be a Preview Exhibition of The Photo Review Benefit Auction. It will be held at the Dorrance-Hamilton Building, Broad and Pine Streets, on Friday, November 20 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturday, November 21 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., just prior to the auction. The online auction listing is also available for bidding, and is well worth a look. Each of the 252 photographs are available for viewing as a thumbnail or at a larger size on this page: www.photoreview.org/Auction/list.php
On Saturday, November 21, a Benefit Auction and Special Reception will be held at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. For more information, visit: www.photoreview.org/auction.htm
The Photo Review is an outstanding journal that I receive and highly recommend, especially if you are based in the Northeast U.S. and enjoy visiting galleries in the region. The listings of exhibitions, photo-related events, book reviews and workshops is extensive. Here is a quick overview of The Photo Review from their website:
“Publishing since 1976, The Photo Review covers photography events throughout the country and serves as a central resource for the Mid-Atlantic region. With incisive reviews, exciting portfolios, lively interviews, the latest in books and exhibitions, The Photo Review quarterly journal has earned a reputation as one of the best serious photography publications being produced today.
In past years, The Photo Review has presented previously unpublished images by Weegee, Duane Michals, and Frederick Sommer and cataloguesfor a James VanDerZee exhibition, a show of Lois Greenfield’s dynamic dance photographs, and the exhibition ‘Changing Visions of the American Landscape.’ Most recently, we have extended our coverage to include the European scene, with reports from Documenta and Arles, and regular reports from FotoFest.”
