Visual arts job fair and gallery networking event!


I moved to LA in August, and am putting together a visual arts job fair and gallery networking event on Saturday, March 13th. We're looking to put this together as a large community event and we're still looking for an appropriate venue. At this point, more non-traditional spaces are interested than traditional galleries. I'm looking for resources/contacts from the AMP community as well as people interested in participating or helping! I'd love your contributions for locations and galleries... This may evolve into a semi-monthly networking event as well if there's enough interest.

I do have the event on facebook at!/event.php?eid=267223982577&ref=mf

feel free to contact me here or at let's talk, time's short!
