ABOUT THIS EVENT
Tune in for a two-person panel intended to help freelance and professional fine artists learn how to market their work, get their work into a gallery, and create a “brand” for themselves and their artwork.
– I make art, Am I an artist?
– What’s the difference between institutional art, expression and advertising?
– What happens when an artist finishes a work? How does it end up in a museum or gallery?
– Why can we sell shoes easier than we can sell artwork?
