Artist Workshop - How to Successfully Get Your Art into Galleries
  • Sunday April 2, 2017
  • Time: 11am-1pm


Are you an established or upcoming artist looking to gain notoriety and success in the art world? Looking to sell your art or sell more of it? Would you like to see your work in galleries and commit more time to your art?

Join this group seminar featuring Bluerock Gallery owner Karen Gimbel and professional artist Doug Swinton, on how you can attain gallery representation. Find out what you need to do before you start hiking down the gallery trail. We will help you map out the prep work - pricing your work, website development, framing practices, etc. The discussion will cover many of the multifaceted areas of what it takes to be a successful gallery artist.

Bring all your questions and queries to the table and we will have an open discussion on what doesn’t work and what other artists have done to achieve success.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Everything you ever wanted to know about breaking into the gallery circuit, including portfolio instruction, taking the correct approach & presentation tips
  • What marketing paths lead to success and which are a waste of time and money
  • How to price and display work effectively
  • Increase revenue and productivity
NOTE: This event is NOT the time or place to approach the gallery owner with your art.
