FotoFest 2018 Biennial

Open Portfolio Nights

During each 4-day session of the Meeting Place, one night is reserved for Open Portfolio Nights. Attended by over 300 people, Open Portfolio Nights provide a positive and dynamic environment for networking and dialogue between artists and attendees. These events take place outside of the scheduled review sessions, and without the barriers of a formal exhibition space.

FotoFest invites local collectors groups, Houston art lovers, Biennial visitors, Meeting Place reviewers, and the general public to the Open Portfolio Nights. Visitors to these nights are encouraged to speak with the artists, view their work, and purchase work that is available for sale.

Since it's inception in 2008, Open Portfolio Nights has grown in popularity, becoming one of the most popular and well attended events of the Meeting Place.

Participation in this event is included in the Meeting Place registration fee. Each Meeting Place registrant will have a designated space during the Open Portfolio Night.


Sunday, March 11, 2018 (Session 1)
Friday, March 16, 2018 (Session 2)
Thursday, March 22, 2018 (Session 3)


Open Portfolio Nights will be held at the Whitehall Houston Hotel, 1700 Smith Street, Houston, TX, 77002. [map]
