How to Approach, Engage & Communicate with Galleries, Museums & the People You Want to Know, with Sharon Louden
Four Sessions (all 7-8:30pm EST):
Monday January 26, The Approach
Monday February 9, Pace & Timing
Monday February 23, Maintaining the Relationship
Led by artist Sharon Louden, this four-part webinar series is geared to visual artists yearning for guidance on how best to approach and communicate with the gatekeepers of the art world: galleries, curators, collectors, museum professionals and more. The webinar will address the following questions: How does an artist approach a gallery cold? How does an artist communicate with a gallerist, curator, museum professional, etc.? What are the best ways to correspond and to start up a relationship and maintain it? When is the best time to approach the person? How often should an artist be in contact? How does one follow up on an inquiry? What is the proper way to pace a professional conversation?
Webinars are all $25 each. All webinars are interactive and allow time for participants to ask questions. To participate, all you need is access to a computer with speakers and an Internet connection (hard-wired preferred).
Interested but can’t attend? All registered participants will receive access to a recording of that webinar.
