The Open House is all about community. It’s a time and place for all those interested in photography and the arts to come together and meet, socialize, learn, laugh and grow. Network with other artists, have your portfolio reviewed by industry professionals, attend a free seminar, discover Open Show LA, learn about book-publishing, take classes and more!
