reception-photo-291x300.jpg

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25TH, 6:30 - 8:30PM

This will be collaborative lecture event that will provide attendees insight on the processes involved with working with curators and galleries.  Learn to locate the appropriate venue for your work, how to present your portfolio in a professional manner, and the best way to determine and set personal goals for your art career.  There will also be discussion on how to work with and collaborate with curators and gallerists.  Ray Beldner, co-founder of the "StART UP Art Fair" will be presenting information on his latest endeavor at this class.

Why presenting yourself as a “valuable asset” will increase your chances of being represented opposed to coming across as a potential “liability”.  The importance of understanding how an exhibition is conceived and then implemented will allow your work to be seen by many potential collectors.  And finally, how an artist’s 100% commitment to this endeavor is relevant to it’s success.  Your dreams are nothing without your total commitment.
