Frances Jakubek, of the Griffin Museum of Photography, will be highlighting aspects of curating a photographic exhibition at PHSNE's meeting in February. Her presentation will cover topics such as best submission practices for group shows and juried exhibitions.

The importance of sequencing and editing a body of work will be discussed, and she will go over tools to streamline the process and to organize photographs. With emphasis on portfolio reviews, the talk will include available show opportunities for photographers and proper ways to introduce your work to curators and galleries.
