PALMER LAKE, CO – Academy Art & Frame Gallery Curator and professional photographer Cas Foste will talk to photographers about how to “Put on Your Best Display” at 7 p.m., Monday, February 11, at the Mountain Community Mennonite Church facility, 643 Hwy 105, in Palmer Lake. The session is free and open to all interested photographers. To see more about the event or the Palmer Divide Photographers Group, go to www.pdphotographers.com.
She will be sharing some insider tips to photographers looking to show their work in galleries.
“I will be discussing all the little things in framing an image that nobody seems to think about but which drive me mad as a curator (and I would imagine other curators have some of the same frustrations!),” Foste said. “I will also discuss what goes into framing a piece yourself and how to make it look good and why in some cases you would want to have it professionally framed.” On tap will be everything from mounting styles, displaying options, to the wire hangers on the back. Foste will talk about why a professional presentation is important to the artist, viewer and gallery.
