Critique Group

Open to Members Only / Free to HCP Members

Critique Groups are a fantastic way to give you a sense of direction in your photographic work. This group is open to photographers of all levels of experience. Critique Group is ideal for photographers interested in getting feedback on their work for the first time as well as seasoned photographers looking for audience reaction on a specific body of work or issue.

The December Critique Group will be led by Lisa Volpe, Associate Curator of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Previous to her position at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Volpe was the Curator of the Wichita Art Museum where she oversaw all areas of the museum’s collection. Additionally, she held various curatorial roles at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (SBMA), and fellowships at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
