As promised, we are following up on our recent events in South Florida with a Thriving Art Exchange Virtual Town Hall! Please join us Monday, April 1st at 4:00 PM (Eastern) to continue to discuss the state of the visual art industry in South Florida, and brainstorm ways to better meet the needs of its stakeholders. We are delighted to welcome panelists including Rickie Leiter, publisher of The Rickie Report; Elayna Toby Singer, artist and Palm Beach County Art in Public Places administrator; and Neil Capozzi, chair of the Arts Council of Martin County, owner of Stuart Art Supply & Studio, and board member of Martin Artisans Guild.

 

 

The Thriving Art Exchange brings together the art world’s various players to engage in constructive dialogue, structured brainstorms, and honest debates about the future of the industry, locally, regionally, and nationally. The ultimate goal is to foster positive transformation and build a vibrant community that serves all its members.

 

 

Elizabeth Hulings tells The Rickie Report, “After our live learning events have ended, we always hear from participants who tell us how much they’ve been impacted by the experience. That feedback is only part of the story, though. The other part is how much WE learn from all of you”. Rickie Leiter is proud to be named to the Advisory Board of the Clark Hulings Fund!

 

Debut of The Thriving Art Exchange:

 

 

On January 31st, we kicked off three days of art-business talk in south Florida with a reception at Claire and Jack Rosen’s CJR Fine Arts & Frame gallery in Royal Palm Beach. The event marked the debut of CHF’s Thriving Art Exchange, which brings together leading voices from all facets of the art world to foster dialogue in the industry—both in person and online. In this time of upheaval, we’re encouraging collaboration and helping to build an art industry where everyone can thrive.

The following morning marked the start of our Ft. Lauderdale Art-Business Conference at ArtServe, co-hosted by the Broward County Cultural Division and sponsored by Wells Fargo. The event drew an impressive and inspiring bunch of artists! South Florida’s arts community is in savvy and passionate hands. Our interactive workshops are designed to be their own kind of Thriving Art Exchange, fostering dialogue and collaboration. We provided these artists with a strong foundation for growing their businesses, and they in turn shared their stories and offered us terrific suggestions that we’ll be incorporating into future conferences and CHF curricula.

Smack in the middle of the workshops, four leaders from the local arts community graciously shared their expertise in our Roundtable Q&A: Ilene Adams, marketing expert, graphic designer, and artist; Deborah Bigeleisen, painter and former owner of a global textile print-design company; Janeen Mason, artist, curator, author, illustrator, speaker, and arts advocate; and Rickie Leiter, publisher of The Rickie Report (which covers southeastern Florida’s visual-art scene) and guest of honor at our Thriving Art Exchange Reception. (To learn more about all four, read their full bios on our event page.)

These amazing women led a spirited discussion that covered a lot of ground, including how to find public art and grant opportunities; getting involved with south Florida’s local gallery scene; and making art fairs work for you. Ultimately, participants learned that art-business success requires engaging with people in honest and meaningful ways. It’s not about sales but rather true connections.

 

 

Daniel DiGriz, Education Director at CHF tells The Rickie Report, “The single most important statistical predictor of life expectancy is that you’re alive. The longer you’re alive, the longer you’re going to live. It’s funny, but it underscores the incredible power of inertia”.

“When I see people on the verge of changing their lives and careers, really propelling themselves forward in quantum bounds, the single biggest predictor of whether they will actually do it, is the step they’re taking right now. If they’re not doing something about it at this very moment, the likelihood and the opportunity plummets”.

 

“I want to see artists make irrevocable changes that accelerate their businesses—so that they mark a before this moment and after this moment on their professional calendars. So it’s not rhetoric to say that this is your last chance. Every chance is your last. Every opportunity missed reduces the likelihood of another opportunity”.
