Gallery 44's FolioForum, is a free, bi-monthly portfolio review group for members. This program provides members, both emerging and established, with the opportunity to discuss their work in a casual and supportive environment with members and a guest artist, writer, curator or other professional from the Toronto arts community.
The review is run like a group critique: each participant has 20 minutes to share a project and receive feedback from the reviewer and the rest of the group. Before the review you should prepare 5-20 images from single body of work that is nearing completion as well as a few questions to guide discussion.
This program offers a casual means by which to generate discussion and receive constructive feedback about a body of work that is in progress, near completion or at completion. Join us for some brews and reviews!
Printing Party Revival (or PPR) is a free analog printing social for members. Scheduled monthly, members are invited to bring in their old negatives and enjoy a night of printing and socializing with other members.
This event is open to all cis women, trans people, and GNC/non-binary/genderqueer members of Gallery 44. Lead by volunteer members, each Safelight event involves a darkroom printing session as well as discussion and group critiques.
Gallery 44 organizes field trips for members to visit nearby arts destinations. Past Field Trips included Le Mois de la Photo in Montreal, weekend residencies at Artscape Gibraltar Point, and a day trip to the Albright Knox and Eastman House.
