how to make a design portfolio network like behance curated site?

I would like to make a small scale portfolio network but no need for any social interaction, thumbup / thumbdown, just people can open an account, input their works, and visitor can filter them by their work's category and their identity category, like painting and undergraduate, is it possible with any plugin listed in wpmu, like marketpress? because essentially this is sort of like a etsy without the payment gateway.
