Event description


In this day and age, as art has become more and more of a commodity, many students graduating from art school believe that they will immediately make a living as an artist by obtaining gallery representation. But there is more than one way to chart a path into a creative and sustainable life as an artist! In part 1 of this 2-part seminar, Sharon will give an overview of useful tools for correspondence, research, and the basics for developing relationships with gallerists, curators and others to create opportunities. The purpose of this webinar series is to empower artists to sustain a creative life on their own and to collaborate with professionals in their community.

Join us December 6, 2016 for Part 1 of See and Be Seen and save the date for March 21, 2017 for Part 2!
