Ready, Set, Show! Workshop On Expanding Success for Visual Artists and Craftspeople

Registration Deadline: September 21, 2017 Event Date: Saturday, September 23, 2017

Guild Offers Workshop On Expanding Success for Visual Artists and Craftspeople

Do your creations sell as well as you would like? Are they seen by lots of people who buy art?

If you are a visual artist who wants your creations to be enjoyed by many and to sell well, your work must be seen and appreciated by a loyal and ever expanding audience of people who buy art.

However, if you are to climb the ladder of success – whether from the first rung or higher up the ladder — your work must be properly prepared, presented, and appropriately placed in public spaces.

Workshop presenter, Susan Eileen Burnes, is an exceptional artist in her own right. Even a partial list of exhibits of her art is impressive. She is also a seasoned art administrator and curator. She served as president of the Grants Pass Museum of Art’s Board of Directors for five years and has envisioned and curated 100 exhibitions over 12 years as Chair of the Museum’s Exhibitions Committee.

Based on her wealth of experience, Burnes will offer ways for artists to successfully move their work out into the world of people who buy art. Whether a beginning artist, a hobbyist, or a professional, participants will gain insight into what curators and jurors expect and what buyers look for. Burnes will also offer suggestions about attendees’ own work in a show-and-tell critique session in the afternoon.

Some of the issues to be covered are: 1) Getting accepted into an exhibit, competition, or gallery — how to avoid mistakes when applying; 2) Making a positive impression in your first (and every) exhibit — how to make sure that happens; 3) Finding new venues — what are the different options and how to locate them, and 4) Establishing a name – how to build the reputation that allows you to increase your prices (and how to price your work to begin with).

Overall, the workshop will help participants learn how an artist can get beyond where he or she is now. An individual’s goal may be being accepted in a gallery, competition or show for the first time, or it may be expanding exposure to distant venues. Burnes will share specific information as well as inspiration to help artists grow in the direction they choose.

The Guild Gallery & Art Center is on the RCC Kerby Campus, 24353 Redwood Highway in Kerby. The workshop hours are 10:00 am to 3:00 pm with an hour for a light lunch that is included. Participants should bring two or three pieces of their own work as part of the afternoon session discussion.

Fees for Guild members are $10-$25 sliding scale, for non-members $25-$45 sliding scale. For scholarship information, contact Guild president, Joyce Abrams at 541-659-3858 or [email protected]

Pre-registration is required. Register by phone at 541-592-5019, by email at [email protected] or in person at the Guild Gallery & Art Center in Kerby. For additional information, check the Guild website www.southernoregonguild.org
