November 3 in NYC: Discussion with Fine Art Bloggers sponsored by ASMP NY

from ASMP NY‘s Susan May Tell on a great event on Wednesday night in NYC:
“ASMPNY’s Fine Art Conversations Series – Panel with Influential Fine Art Photography Bloggers!

Do you want your photography blogged about by influential Fine Art Photography Bloggers? Then this event is for you!

When:    November 3, 2010
Where:   Soho Photo 15 White Street
Time:    Doors and registration open 6:30pm

Panel Discussion 7-9:00pm

Fine art photography blogs have changed the landscape for sharing and reviewing work. Blogs are more personal and idiosyncratic while attracting a wide audience, and doing so more quickly and inexpensively.  Photographers no longer have to wait for a review of a bricks-and-mortar exhibition by a very small group of print publications. The objective of this night is to inform photographers about fine art photography blogging:
-how the blog came into being
-how the blog differs from photography covered in a print edition (if there is one)
-what bloggers like (or don’t) about blogging
-advantages and disadvantages about blogging
-who is the audience for the blog
-how work is chosen for the blog
-how bloggers like (or don’t) to be contacted by photographers, agents or galleries
-how blogging has impacted fine art photography (or not)
Panelists: read their full bios here

November 4th in San Diego: An evening with curator Carol McCusker

Join CAROL McCUSKER for a special talk on contemporary photography:

In conjunction with The Art of Photography show:
When: Thursday, November 4th 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Where: Lyceum Theatre Gallery, in Horton Plaza, Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego

Cost: Free

Carol McCusker’s talk, Know Thyself, will focus on fine art photography, specifically questions around how we develop a vision, what influences come to bear on our creative output, and the roll of galleries, museums, photo competitions and portfolio reviews. Using music as a corollary, she’ll explore how photography falls into as many different categories (folk, rock, jazz, country, world beat, classical, etc.), but how, within each category, there are equivalents of ‘Musak’ at one end of the spectrum and inspired innovation at the other. What she seeks from all creative people, including herself, is the ability to ‘know thyself,’ and to honestly know where you fit in this spectrum.

McCusker is also concerned with the use of language when photographers talk about their work, which can often confuse not just their audience but themselves and what they hope to achieve. To make her point, she’ll use examples from the current Art in Photography Show, its attending lecture series, the history of photography and a competition she recently juried.

Carol McCusker is an independent curator, writer and educator. For eight years, she was Curator of Photography at the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego, where she curated over thirty-five exhibitions. She is an adjunct professor at the University of San Diego and UCSD Extension. Recently, she was Juror for the prestigious 2010 ICP/NY Infinity Award, and the 2010 Julia Margaret Cameron Award in York, UK. McCusker has review portfolios nationally and internationally, including the Lishui Photo Festival, Lishui, China; Camera Lucida, Portland, OR; Houston Photo Fest, TX; Review Santa Fe, NM; Atlanta Celebrates Photography, GA; and Review L.A. She writes for The Photo Review, B&W, Color, Communication Arts, and numerous artists’ catalogues.
