This ongoing 90-minute series is geared toward photographers and the curious collector, where we go behind-the-scenes to have a flexible, honest and open conversation between a dealer and one of their artists.  From the gallery’s perspective, topics may range from how the dealer met the photographer and how they now work together, to how the gallery defines its brand, how new talent is discovered to the challenges of running a gallery in today’s world. Of particular interest is what attracted the photographer to the dealer and vice versa!  Collector, advisor and Maine Media faculty member, Alice Sachs Zimet, moderates.
