Erica Ando asks a very important question: “WHO’S THE CEO OF YOUR ART BUSINESS?” Our next Art Salon is a ‘Take It To The Bank’ Salon, something we haven’t done in a long time. Erica has founded “The Empowered Artist”, a new business & career coaching service and resource for artists, and will be sharing some of the career building secrets that she’s learned during her over 20 year career working with artists, non-profits, museums and commercial galleries, and as a curator of exhibitions and public programs. Erica has also been a successful grant writer, editor and project manager, as well as a respected art writer for regional, national and international publications, like BOMB, Sculpture, ArtPress, Art Papers, The Miami Rail, and others.

 

 

Erica earned a BFA from Parsons School of Design and an MFA from Tyler School of Art. She went back to school in her 40s and earned a PhD from Florida Atlantic University in the Fine and Performing Arts.  In another life, she owned and operated a profitable fashion accessories company for eight years. (Fun Fact: her first client was the store at MOMA).  Through all of her adventures, she’s learned the hard way about how important it is to balance the creative and business sides of work. She’s also learned about selling and marketing, which, as an introvert, did NOT come naturally!

 

 

It’s her personal mission to empower artists to thrive creatively, build a successful career with purpose and authenticity, make more money, and have the knowledge and confidence to keep it going.  In this presentation, Erica will be talking about her background and what inspired her to start “The Empowered Artist”. In the second hour of the Salon, she’ll be answering your art business and career questions! This is definitely a “Don’t Miss” Salon.
