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.
Safelight is a women-centred event open to all women and gender non-conforming, non-binary, genderqueer members of G44 who feel comfortable in women-centred spaces. Safelight is member-driven and facilitated by G44 member volunteers. Showing work is not mandatory!
