Professional photographic artist Sandra McMartin wraps up the 2014 Art of Marketing Speaker Series with a session on gallery exhibition marketing
Submitted. The Abbotsford Arts Council presents “Oh No! What Have I Done? How to Maximize Your Gallery Exhibition Sales and Traffic Potential,” the final session of the 2014 Art of Marketing Speaker Series, sponsored by the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce. The session will be held at 6:30PM on November 6, 2014 at the Kariton Art Gallery and Boutique. The featured speaker will be Sandra McMartin, professional photographic artist.
As an artist, it can be a monumental moment to receive an email that says “We are happy to inform you that you have been selected to show your artwork at our gallery.” However, what comes next is another story. Oftentimes artists are so busy creating the work that after submission they ask themselves “What now?” This session will provide ideas on how to maximize the number of show attendees, sales and what every artist should know to market a successful show from the point of view of a successful artist.
Pre-registration is $15 for Abbotsford Arts Council members and $25 for non-members and possible online at galleryshowmarketing.eventbrite.ca or at the Kariton Art Gallery and Boutique, located at 2387 Ware Street in Abbotsford, B.C. For more information, please visit abbotsfordartscouncil.org
