You’re an artist who is just starting out or one who already has a few good shows on your resume. You have a great body of work but you’re not sure why you haven’t landed more exhibition opportunities or ones that feel like a better fit.
You love creating art and you feel like the time has come to really get it out there.
But… the thought of connecting with a gallery is a little intimidating. Which galleries are the best fit for your work? What should you say to get your foot in the door? How are you going to handle it if they say no, we don’t like your work?
Approaching a gallery director feels scary because what they’re looking for seems like such an unknown and they can turn down your art outright. Ouch! Not exactly the kind of feedback you want to get.
You think, “If only I could get the recognition that my art deserves, I could sell more work and start to feel like I was getting somewhere.”
You’re ready to share your art with people who will appreciate and understand it. You really want to take your art career to the next level.
If only you knew how to find the right galleries for your work, you could sell more art, find repeat collectors and maybe get a few reviews. That would feel great!
Do any of these sound familiar?
You wonder why some people get shows, when their art isn’t nearly as good as yours
You wish you could show your work at better galleries
You are too shy to network with art-world-people
You are terrified that you’ll come off sounding like an amateur
Even if you’ve been showing work for a while, I’ll help you know how to find the *right* galleries and be able to approach them confidently and professionally. I’ll share insights from actual gallerists on how galleries work. You’ll learn how to approach a gallery with ease so you can show your work more often and at more professional art venues.
You’ll be able to finally feel like you know what you’re doing when you contact a gallery. You’ll start to feel excited to find your next place to exhibit and see the possibilities of having an art career where you can grow and be successful.
Imagine how great it will feel to actually have a concrete and doable plan for getting shown in galleries.
When you’ve completed the Confidently Connect with Great Galleries process, you’ll feel prepared and ready to take your art career to the next level.
After working together, you will…
Know how to build a viable list of galleries to approach
Know how to contact them with confidence
Know what the right materials are to send to galleries
Learn a BIG shortcut that everyone misses to find the best galleries
And, you’ll have my the right tools so you can put the techniques that you learn during the workshop into action. These include:
Script for first contact with a gallery
Email gallery submission template
Scripts to follow up with the gallery
Gallery Tracker Tool
There are a limited number of seats for this in-person workshop. Grab one now so you can take the first step to getting your work the recognition it deserves.
This workshop is led by Kate Farrall, an 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.
