FOTOFEST's Evening with the Artists is a new program that connects the public with the hundreds of artists, curators, and other art professionals visiting Houston for the acclaimed MEETING PLACE Portfolio Review.

The Meeting Place has been an important part of the FOTOFEST Biennial since its start in 1986. In the organization's 25 years it has serviced thousands of artists by connecting them with our international network of curators, festival directors, publishers, collectors and gallerists. These meetings have led to exhibitions, books and representation for many emerging and established artists.

The Meeting Place has earned international respect and status as an open door program for artists from all over the world. The new 2008 Evenings with the Artists invited the public is to see the work of artists that participated in the Meeting Place reviews. The Eveningshad a fun-filled and festive atmosphere. Hundreds of people from outside of the Meeting Place came to meet artists, look at work and possibly purchase art directly from artists.

The Evenings were sponsored by the Houston Press, 42 Below Vodka, KUHF 88.7 FM and the Doubletree Hotel-Downtown.
