Paula Tognarelli is the Executive Director and Curator of the Griffin Museum of Photography. The Griffin Museum of Photography located in Winchester outside Boston, Massachusetts, is a nonprofit photography museum whose mission is to promote an appreciation of photographic art and a broader understanding of its visual, emotional and social impact. The museum houses 3 galleries and maintains 4 satellite gallery spaces. Ms. Tognarelli is responsible for producing over 54 exhibitions a year at the Griffin and its surrounding satellite. She holds an M.S. in Arts Administration from Boston University, BA from Regis College, is a graduate of the New England School of Photography and a candidate for her Masters in Education at Lesley University.
Paula will present a “Photo Stand Up” for the Duxbury Camera Club on what is involved in realizing a photography agenda. The experience will involve her personal way of “telling it like it is,” in a conversational style that often uses honesty, empathy, humor and practical examples (both real and imagined).
She will first spend some time on workaday matters, how to look at photographs (and all artwork) and address all audience queries. Eventually in sharing her suggestions for the etiquette and industry practices of marketing photography work for exposure she will get to the underbelly of the “do not dos.”
Anyone with questions on evaluating photographs, marketing for exhibitions and other photographic opportunities, from local and national galleries, to museums and other photo-world players, may benefit from this conversation covering various topics, genres and skill sets.
