The Mason-Dixon line exists in the American imagination as the line demarcating “Dixieland”, the land of the south, of human bondage and states’ rights issues, the mythic fallen hero, and the home of the “Blues”. In fact, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon surveyed the line prior to the Revolutionary War to resolve overlapping English land grants to the Penn and Calvert families, two families fighting over property. The line extends east to west bisecting Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia, and vertically, north to south between Maryland and Delaware.

Traveling to the Mason-Dixon Line for the last five years, Bill has been piecing together a collection of Mason-Dixon ephemera-visual fragments of life on the Line.

This lecture is online.

We will email the online address to those who register for this event for the artist talks.

Mason Dixon-American Fictions will be exhibited at Gallery Kayafas in October 2020.

Class meets: May 20, May 27, June 3, June 10, and June 17, 2020.

This interactive online course will provide you with guidance in a supportive environment as you develop your fine art photography portfolio and create essential documents and materials to prepare you to market and exhibit your work.

Presentations, exercises and instructor-led, group critiques will help you refine your ideas, create strong images and edit and sequence your work for presentation. In a similar way, we will workshop key documents that are part of a complete marketing package: your well-written artist statement, bio and resume.

Personal websites, social media, supplemental support materials and networking, are reviewed. We will discuss approaches and opportunities for marketing your work. Extensive resource lists of are provided. Please note: This class assumes that you have a series of photographs or are working on a series with the intent of creating a portfolio. You can expect to devote 3-4 hours per week on assignments that are designed to assure that you have a ready-to-use marketing package by the completion of this class.

This six hour workshop with Ivana Damien George will be delivered online over 3 two-hour sessions:
May 27 from 6-8 pm (Eastern time)
June 1 from 6-8 pm (Eastern time)
June 3 from 6-8 pm (Eastern time)

Participants will develop their ideal collector avatar, learn where to find art collectors and generate a list of possible events that you can attend in the next three months to meet more art collectors. You will learn how to find the names of local art patrons that are hiding in plain sight, where you never thought to look before.
