Can Visual Artists Conquer The Changing Marketplace? Clark Hulings Fund For Visual Artists Brings The Tools, Inspiration, And Support At Art Business Conference February 1 & 2

The Clark Hulings Fund for Visual Artists (CHF) announces its Art Business Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, inspiring visual artists to “Conquer the Changing Marketplace.” This weekend long business development workshop will give professional working artists the chance to take a deep dive into the business side of their art careers. Scheduled for February 1 and 2, 2019, the event is funded in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners through the Broward Cultural Council. The two-day conference is co-sponsored by ArtServe, an active incubator for Broward County’s growing art community.  This is open to all visual artists.  The Rickie Report shares a $50 discount code for our readers.  Rickie will be one of the presenters at this event.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The event manifests CHF’s assertion that “Art is a business and artists should run it.” With the art market undergoing rapid and significant change—not only with regard to technology but also HOW art is marketed, bought, and sold—artists need to reclaim their rightful position at the center of the industry. The Art-Business Conference will help them to take charge of their careers, captivate their audience, maximize the extraordinary professional advantages they already possess and sell their art effectively and profitably.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Topics will include building an action plan, creating a brand story, rocking their portfolio, multiplying revenue streams, pricing for profit, selling art online effectively, building a strong support team, squashing resistance, sales strategies, and much more. All sessions are interactive, allowing artists to work together and engage conference leaders with their specific business questions.

 

Elizabeth Hulings

 

 

The program will be led by Elizabeth Hulings, CHF director and co-founder; Carolyn Edlund, CHF sales director, and events manager; and Daniel DiGriz, CHF education director. “South Florida has emerged as an important art hub,” says Hulings. “We are thrilled to be delivering tangible business skills and training in this exciting market.” Edlund, CHF sales director, and events manager; and Daniel DiGriz, CHF education director. “South Florida has emerged as an important art hub,” says Hulings. 

 

Carolyn Edlund

 

 

The event fee is $395.  Tickets are available here. In addition to conference admission, ticket holders will receive one year of “Colleague”-level access to CHF’s Business Accelerator Portal, a comprehensive online learning resource for working artists.

As investment in the arts transformed downtown Delray Beach from blight to beauty, and crime-ridden to #1 All American City, the annual Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts has been a part of that transformation. This year, Atlantic Avenue celebrates three decades of the award-winning, free event during the 30th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts. More than 300 local, national and international artists will display their works across all mediums in a prestigious show encompassing life-sized sculpture, fine jewelry, exquisite works of art and hand-crafted apparel and decor. Taking place January 19 – 20 from 10 am to 5 pm both days, residents and visitors are invited to take a stroll in the beautiful Florida winter weather and enjoy eye-popping art. Whether your passions run to sparkling jewels and one-of-a-kind paintings, exquisitely crafted glasswork or an art deco sculpture, you are sure to find it during the free, two-day event.

 

 

 

WI painter Marc Anderson uses old-world techniques for each impressionistic piece.

 

 

“The Downtown Delray Festival of the Arts has become what the Las Olas Art Fair is to downtown Fort Lauderdale – iconic,” says founder and producer Alan. “Artists plan their years around this event, and visitors will schedule their vacations around it as well. We are so grateful to have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to the local economy and to the Downtown Development Authority, because they have helped us produce a nationally recognized show while supporting the lives of the artists and the local store owners for thirty years,” continues Alan. “It is an honor to be a part of the growth and prosperity of beautiful downtown Delray Beach.”
