A Career Enhancing Seminar for Visual Artists

Pinellas County Cultural Affairs
Presents a Career Enhancing Seminar for Visual Artists

This informal, 3-hour seminar will provide insights into the most effective and professional ways for artists to introduce their work to museum professionals, galleries and other creative venues. The seminar will focus on building successful museum relationships, what are necessary artist materials, exhibition and other museum opportunities, contracts and understanding permanent collections. A panel discussion will complete the workshop, providing insight into gallery representation, standard museum and gallery practices, and gallery-artist relationships. All levels of visual artists (professional to amateur) are encouraged to attend.
