Presented by Kim Bernard, 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 covers hi-priority topics such as photographing your work, websites, gallery representation, pricing, net-working and small business basics, followed by a Q&A.
