Where does the garden path lead? To a spectacular new country setting for The Photo Review Garden Party: the home and studio of photographers Michael A. Smith and Paula Chamlee in Ottsville, PA.

 

This year’s gala, The Photo Review Garden Party, for photographers, collectors, curators, writers, and friends, will be held in late summer. You are cordially invited to this year’s party.

Saturday, September 10, 2016, 2-7 p.m. Rain or shine.

Bid a fond farewell to summer with an afternoon of music, conversation, pictures, drinks, and light fare at Michael and Paula’s remarkable home and studio in the country.

Meet photographers Michael A. Smith and Paula Chamlee, Marilyn Bridges, Larry Fink*, and Neal Slavin* (*if their schedules allow); Kelsey Halliday Johnson, Curatorial Fellow in Photography & New Media, Michener Art Museum; Stephen Perloff, editor of The Photo Review and The Photograph Collector; and many other photographers and collectors.

Bring books to sign and sell. Look at pictures — please bring work to share!

The Garden Party will also feature a panel on book publishing with Michael and Paula of Lodima Press, Theo Anderson of wilbureditions, and others. And as an added treat, Michael and Paula are each preparing a special edition print available to party attendees at a very special price. (See the link at the bottom of this page.)

Tickets start at $75. (A limited number of $40 artist tickets are available upon inquiry.)
