The purpose of the Meeting Place is to provide artists an opportunity to have their work seen by important International curators, gallery owners, magazine editors, representatives of photography agencies, collectors, and publishers.

Over the course of the last 20 years, the Meeting Place has been the catalyst for exhibitions, publications, and wider acclaim for many artists. For a list of some of the opportunities artists have been given as a result of the Meeting Place, please see the Successes of the Meeting Place page.

Photographers registered for the Meeting Place have the opportunity to view exceptional exhibitions in and around the Houston area as well as participate in the biennial festivities, opening receptions, lectures, seminars and workshops. Apart from our formal reviews, you will also have time for informal networking with other professional photographers and reviewers.
