On Tuesday, June 28 at 7 pm the Bedford Center for the Arts Photo Group is pleased to welcome Jessica Burko who will review with us “My Five Best Shots”. This very popular session is back once again. It is a time for members to look back on their photography over the past year and share what has been meaningful to them: new techniques tried; great images made or attempted; photo experiences that were meaningful to them. Not a critique – members will have time to tell the group about their work and what it means to them.
Jessica Burko has been an exhibiting artist since 1985 and has displayed work in solo and group shows throughout the United States. She holds a BFA in Fine Art Photography from Rhode Island School of Design, and an MFA in Imaging Arts and Science from Rochester Institute of Technology.
In addition to being a practicing artist, Burko is the Creative Director at the Photographic Resource Center, Cambridge, MA. She is also an independent curator and her professional background includes the position of Gallery Director at Stonehill College from 2000-2006; from 2007-2014 she held the position of Executive Director of the artist collective, Boston Handmade, and from 2016-2019 she was the Marketing Director at Kingston Gallery.
She supports artists in achieving their creative and professional goals through lectures, workshops, and partnerships with organizations such as ArtsWorcester, Worcester, MA, Mass MoCA’s Assets for Artists Program, North Adams, MA, and the South Shore Arts Center, Cohasset, MA. jessicaburko.com
