This workshop is led by Kate Farrall, a Sac Open Studios volunteer and artist as well as a business guide for artists who want to earn more from their work. They’ve got amazing art and know that they absolutely have to do give their art a chance. She teaches artists to connect and engage with the right people who want to show their work and invest in their art, allowing them to get the recognition they deserve and make money doing the creative work they love.
Kate is also an artist who loves all things alternative photography. She has exhibited her work alongside the work of Marco Breuer, Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey, Binh Danh and Ann Hamilton. She holds a MFA in Photography from the California College of the Arts as well as a BA in Art History and a BA in Photography from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
