Alternative Marketing for Visual Artists Presented by Art Business Consultant and Coach, Martha Zlatar
Mainstream art galleries are not the only way to sell your artwork. Actually most successful visual artists do not make the majority of their sales from galleries.
Designed specifically for visual and spatial artists, this workshop will get you thinking outside of the gallery so you can find alternative spaces for your artwork.
In this class you will discover:
- Types of galleries: Non-profit vs. Mainstream vs. Edgy Cutting Edge
- Is the gallery system right for you?
- How your goals help define your venue (exposure vs. sales)
- Ways to take your art on tour (from hotels, to banks to building lobbies)
- Possible alternative strategies for your art career.
I want to personally thank Martha – a fellow Artists Marketing & Business Academy member – for stepping in for me while I’m in Los Angeles expanding my coaching skills.
