Portfolio Review & Art Resource Fair Saturday, February 28, 2015, 1pm-4pm

Location: Paul Robeson Campus Center Room #255, 350 Dr Martin Luther King Blvd, Newark, NJ 07102

The Paul Robeson Galleries will be hosting a free portfolio review.  The portfolio review offers artists an opportunity to have their work reviewed by distinguished professionals in the industry.  While there is no fee to participate, artists interested in participating are encouraged to reserve a review slot in advance.  Artists with reservations will be given priority.  Each session is 25 minutes in duration.  Due to high demand, artists who are more than 5 minutes late for their appointment risk losing their reservation.

We will begin taking requests for reservations on February 16th.  To make a reservation, please contact Anonda Bell, Director & Curator, at

In Conversation Date & Speakers TBD

Artists discuss their lives and how they are actually “making it work” in the real world.  An informal discussion and Q&A, speaking directly about the experiences they have had, both positive and negative, and how they support themselves in parallel jobs as preparators, gallerists, administrators, and artist educators, while maintaining their core studio practice.  

Resources Library Mondays-Thursdays, 10am-5pm

Books and related materials available for reading in the Main Gallery which cover issues of being an artist, including overviews of how to manage your career, as well as books related to living a creative life.  For each current Main Gallery exhibition there is also a selection of books providing additional information about exhibition themes.

See the PRG Resources Library PDF for a list of resources available.
