Lakeside BBQ Sunday, June 7, 2020

Last year’s Trifecta Weekend was so successful; we are doing it again!


Three juried exhibition’s in the three distinct galleries at the Carnegie Center for Creativity in Fort Collins. Three prestigious curators are attending the reception, dinner following the reception, portfolio reviews, talks, and portfolio sharing. The final event of the weekend is a lakeside BBQ on Sunday afternoon.

One artist from the three exhibitions will be chosen for the TRIFECTA Prize. This year the TRIFECTA Prize is a solo exhibition at The Griffin Museum of Photography! Thank you, Paula Tognarelli!
