Exhibition Class – FALL
This course is designed for artists who have an established project they want to take to the next level through creative exercises and intensive critique. Over the course of three months, meeting every other week, artists will continue to create new imagery, learn to talk about their work, edit and sequence their images, make exhibition decisions in line with their project goals as well as write an artist statement. The course will culminate in a group exhibition in the Garner Center of Photography in the month of January. Under the tutelage of the instructor, students will install the exhibition with the curatorial oversight of the Gallery Director. The group will also be given the opportunity to plan a gallery talk, open to the public, in concert with the exhibition.

About the instructor: Suzanne Revy
Suzanne Révy grew up in Los Angeles, California. After high school she moved to Brooklyn, NY where she earned a BFA in photography from the Pratt Institute. While there, she was immersed in making and printing black and white photographs. After art school, she worked as a photography editor in magazine publishing at U.S.News & World Report and later at Yankee Magazine. With the arrival of two sons, she left publishing, and rekindled her interest in the darkroom. She photographed her boys, their cousins and friends, and built three portfolios of pictures over a fifteen year period. The first, a black and white series, explored the culture and nature of childhood play. The second, made with a lo-fi plastic camera and color film, represents her own emotional response as mother and witness to their growth and development. The third, a series of color pictures made in her home as her teen sons seemed to retreat into their rooms as she studied for her recently earned MFA at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
Her work has been exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, the Fitchburg Art Museum in Fitchburg, MA, the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA, the Workspace Gallery in Lincoln, NE, the Camera Club of NY in NewYork City, the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH, and the New England School of Photography in Boston. Her work is represented by the Panopticon Gallery in Boston, MA.
