Are you an established or upcoming artist looking to gain notoriety and success in the art world? Do you wonder how to start selling your art… or sell more of your art? Would you like to see your work in galleries and get inspired to commit more time to your art? If you answered “Heck, yes!” to those questions, join this group seminar — featuring Bluerock Gallery owner Karen Gimbel and professional artist Doug Swinton — to learn how you can attain gallery representation. Find out what you need to do before you start hiking down the gallery trail. We will help you map out the prep work — pricing your work, website development, framing practices, etc… The discussion will include many different areas, all of which come together to create a successful gallery artist.

Bring all your questions and queries to the table and we will have an open discussion on what does (and doesn’t!) work and how established artists have achieved success.

Topics Covered Include:

Everything you ever wanted to know about breaking into the gallery circuit, including portfolio instruction, taking the correct approach and presentation tips.
Which marketing paths lead to success and which are a waste of time and money.
How to price and display your work effectively.
Tips for increasing revenue and productivity.
NOTE: This event is NOT the right time or place to approach the Bluerock gallery owner and the Leighton Art Centre with your art. But after you attend the workshop, you'll know when/where/how to do it!

Audience: This workshop is open to any artist wanting to learn more about the art world. You may want to bring a personal snack and water bottle.
