I attended several workshops/lectures:
- 9 Self-Promotion Tools Every Artist Must Have by Alyson Stanfield.
- The Marketing Doctor is In!: Developing a Marketing Plan that Works by The Kasten Group
- The Nitty Gritty of Promoting Your Art to Business by the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts
- Public Art: What, How and Why! [The Best Way to Apply and Receive a Public Art Commission] by the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs.
In addition I was fortunte enough to have a free half hour of consulting with Art Biz Coach Alyson Stanfield.
I came away from the day with my mind full of ideas on how to promote my artwork. The workshops were packed full of information and creative ideas on how to proceed with my career. I feel quite fortunate to live in Denver and have these local resources willing to put on such a wonderful event for artists and other creative businesses.
The next step is to sit down with all my new ideas and see how they fit into my long term goals. While there are many avenues I could pursue, from public art commissions, to corporate collections, to gallery represenation, to museum shows and more, I simply don’t have time for it all. At some point I have to find time to make art also!
And Alyson, your booth was fine. Your talk was wonderful and as usual I learned an incredible amount from you in a short period of time. Your enthusiasm is so inspiring. Thank you!
