Evenings with the Artists

Evenings with the Artists

Open Portfolio Nights

FotoFest invites local collectors groups, Houston art lovers, Biennial visitors, Meeting Place reviewers, and the general public to the Evenings with the Artists. Visitors to these nights are encouraged to speak with the artists, view their work, and purchase work that is available for sale. These nights provide opportunities for networking outside the formal review sessions.

During each 4-day session of the Meeting Place, one night is reserved for Evenings with the Artists - Open Portfolio Nights, attended by over 500 people. Evenings with the Artists provides a positive and dynamic environment for dialogue between artists and attendees, without the barriers of a formal exhibition space.

Started in 2008, Evenings with the Artists has grown in popularity and has become one of the most popular and well attended events of the Meeting Place.

Participation in this event is included in the Meeting Place registration fee . Each Meeting Place registrant will have a space during the Evenings with the Artists-Open Portfolio Night.


Sunday, March 13 (Session One)
Friday, March 18 (Session Two)
Wednesday, March 23 (Session Three)
Tuesday, March 29 (Session Four)


The Evenings with the Artists Open Portfolio Nights will be held in in downtown Houston at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Houston Downtown, 400 Dallas Street, Houston, TX, 77002.
