For All Levels of Experience
Gallerists, curators of public art and jurors for national shows have a lot in common when it comes to pet peeves in regard to shows. You may think you’ve been on the circuit so long you don’t need a class like this, however, you may be stuck in ineffective habits keeping you out of the bigger shows and galleries you want to be associated with. You may not be current with new developments in marketing. Paperwork and presentation are the first two reasons an artist is disqualified with quality of art the last consideration. Your work may be stunning in every respect, yet if you don’t know how to approach a gallery or fill out a submission your art won’t be seen. The elephant in the room is the bad manners of artists who forget to set the necessary creative narcissism aside when they go out to market their work. The Artists who know how to work the steps are rewarded with space on the wall.
We’ll talk about the myths, the shifting art market and how to create your niche, define ways to choose the path you want to pursue in addition to the technical side of presentation and the business of shows ~ among other things.
The price of the class is a small percentage of the cost of doing business if you want to make a living from your art. Your time will be well spent.
