In-Person Learning

Lori Vrba and Tobia Makover lead this workshop with big ideas for expanding how we consider and pursue a viable career in the photographic arts. Examine the radical shift from the traditional notions of fine art success to what is now a game-changing movement in the exhibition, curatorial, and marketing arenas.

Vrba and Makover walk you through an avant-garde world of exhibition, production, and curation and take a deep dive into the current and liberating swings in the business of art with topics of the marketplace, social media, and branding.

Re-imagine your creative life by exploring alternative exhibition venues, connections to your local and global community, and innovative business thinking for the art marketplace. If you’ve got a fire in your belly and the fierce spirit to be audacious in today’s art world, this course is for you.

Participants are encouraged to bring portfolios for one-on-one and group brainstorming for the how, what, where, and why we are the paradigm shift in the visual arts scene.

Only the brave need apply.


Lori Vrba ( is a self-taught artist based in Hillsborough, North Carolina. With a southern sensibility for storytelling, her imagery and assemblage is rooted in themes of memory, illusion, loss, and revival. Vrba’s work is held in private and permanent collections throughout the world including the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey. Vrba has curated numerous exhibitions including Tribe for the Fox Talbot Museum in 2018 which then traveled to The Center for Photographic Art -Carmel, CA. Her first monograph The Moth Wing Diaries was published in 2015 by Daylight Books. She currently lives on a small farm with her retired husband and a lot of animals.


Tobia Makover ( is a mixed media artist.  She starts with an image, the soul of her work, then encompasses many layers of medium that she paints, carves, torches and then preserves in wax and resin through an encaustic process that dates back to the 1st Century, BCE.  Her work has expanded to mixed media, object, and installation art. 

Internationally acclaimed, Tobia has exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London, Les Ateliers de L’Image in St. Remy, France, PH-Neutro in Verona, Italy, the Griffin Museum in Boston, AIPAD in New York, Museum of Contemporary Art in Atlanta, and SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah. Her work is also included in the permanent collections of Museum of Contemporary Art in Atlanta, Savannah College of Art and Design and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. She received her MFA in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design and her BA in Sociology and Communications from the American University in Washington, D.C…
