COPA Juror Reception and Gallery Talk
COPA is proud to announce the Juror Reception and Gallery Talk with George Slade, Friday, October 10, 6-8pm at the Walker’s Point Center for the Arts. The event is free and open to the public. George Slade, former Artistic Director of the Minnesota Center for Photography, juried this year’s exhibition; selecting 60 photographs from 42 artists. Slade also served as Program Director for the Minnesota Center for Photography/McKnight Foundation Artists Fellowships for Photographers, and is an adjunct assistant curator in the Department of Photography at The Minneapolis Institute of the Arts. Slade’s expert eye in selecting work has been honed over the years. He has been a panelist and portfolio reviewer for the Ohio Arts Council, Minnesota State Arts Board, Minnesota State Fair, Fotofest’s Meeting Place, and Society for Photographic Education, Critical Mass and Photolucida. Slade is also a prolific writer, having contributed reviews and essays to the Encyclopedia of Twentieth Century Photography, Exposure, Photo-eye Booklist, Minnesota History, and other publications. Slade lives in St. Paul with his two daughters.
The reception for Slade will begin at 6pm on Friday, October 10, with his Gallery Talk following at 7pm. Walker’s Point Center for the Arts is located at 911 W. National Ave., Milwaukee, WI. 53204, phone 414-672-2787.
