The Artist Toolbox Talk introduces artists to the most critical skills they need to represent themselves and advance professionally in the changing dynamics of today’s arts and culture sectors.
Creating a strong body of work is the most important part of being an artist, but then what?! This presentation will cover high priority topics such as: photographing your work, websites, gallery representation, pricing, networking and small business basics, followed by a Q&A.
Free and open to the public
