Join Filter Photo Executive Director, Jennifer Murray along with artists and educators Aimée Beaubien and Jon Horvath for this one-day workshop.  Develop your portfolio and hone your presentation skills through this intensive session for the emerging photographer.  As a part of our Professional Development workshop series, participants will develop an existing body of work into a professional portfolio ready for presentation or review at photography festivals, fairs, and with curators and gallerists.  Designed for those looking for feedback on new or existing projects that can benefit from critique as well as professional practices advice, the workshop will focus on review of current portfolios, editing and sequencing images, in-depth group critique, and advice on presentation.

This hands-on workshop is ideal for emerging photographers, recent graduates, new practitioners, and those making a shift from commercial to fine art work and is excellent preparation for professional portfolio reviews.

Class size is limited to 15 participants.

Aimée Beaubien is an artist living and working in Chicago. Her sculptural photo-based collages explore collapses in time, space, and place, while playfully engaging the complexities of visual perception. Solo and two-person exhibitions include Gallery UNO Projektraum, Berlin, Germany; The Pitch Project, Milwaukee, WI; BOX 13 Artspace, Houston, TX; Johalla Projects, Chicago, IL; and Demo Projects, Springfield, IL. Group exhibitions include Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, IL; Evanston Art Center, Evanston, IL; Bikini Berlin, Berlin, Germany; and Antenna Gallery, New Orleans, LA. Her work has been reviewed in publications such as Art in America, Art on Paper, and Art Papers. Beaubien is Assistant Professor of Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Jon Horvath’s interdisciplinary practice adapts systems-based strategies to photography, performance, and new media works. His work is influenced by American literature, pop culture, and his interest in the unfixed nature of a photographic experience.  Horvath received his MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2008, and a BAS in both English Literature and the History of Philosophy from Marquette University in 2001. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in venues including: The Print Center (Philadelphia), FIESP Cultural Centre (Sao Paolo, Brazil), Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, Newspace Center for Photography (Portland), the Haggerty Museum of Art (Milwaukee), INOVA (Milwaukee), Colorado Photographic Arts Center, Johalla Projects (Chicago), The Dean Jensen Gallery (Milwaukee), and the Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography. His work is currently held in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Haggerty Museum of Art, and is included in the Midwest Photographers Project at the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Horvath currently teaches in the New Studio Practice program at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design.
