The $40 yearly dues would make those in the second tier members of the Katy Area Artists (KAA) one of the oldest art groups in the area. The Lone Star Art Guild , Katy Culture and Arts Alliance (KCAA) and the Fort Bend Culture and Arts Alliance (FBCAA). All are very active visual arts groups. They host local and regional gallery exhibits and competitions, mixers and opportunities to sell your work.
The portfolio review is something that photographers pay hundreds of dollars at Houston's FotoFest International. This is a process that allows you to present several images to qualified photographers and judges who will give you one-on-one critiques of your work. This is not a competition, but a way to help you on your personal journey. The critiques are fair and constructive, not negative or harsh. This would be free to paid members.
We are meeting with KAA on Monday night and need to know how many members would be committed to join this new level of Katy Photography Meetup Group. If you would like to join the second tier, we need to hear from you by 1:00PM CST Sunday Jan 13 letting us know if you would support the 2nd Tier so that we can start the process of setting up a Photography branch of KAA.
