Advice for Artists: Secure Opportunities and Promote Your Events

Arts advocate and marketing expert Rickie Leiter shares recommendations on how artists can make the most of opportunities and publicity.

 

Rickie Leiter, founder of The Rickie Report, covers the South Florida visual art scene. She publishes feature stories, presents upcoming events and opportunities, and provides helpful tips for artists of all types to publicize their work and further their art careers. Rickie outlines proven ways for artists to assess and successfully apply to calls, and gain exposure when accepted.

 

 

The Rickie Report

 

Why apply?

First, to determine why you are applying to a specific Call for Artists, ask these questions:

  • Do you have enough body of work to apply?
  • Has this been a successful show for you in the past?
  • If it’s a new venue, what are your goals?
  • How will being in this exhibit help your business grow?
  • Will it help you network with others to amplify your own work in the future?

Take moment to consider what being in an exhibit means for your business. While your goal is to sell and make a profit, you need to consider the exposure as part of your advertising and marketing budget. You have one, right?

Every successful business has a marketing plan, and it helps to create a two-year calendar for this purpose. The calendar will allow you to keep track of exhibits and shows you are in and those you are applying to and waiting to hear from.

Make an inventory list so you know which pieces may be committed to a certain exhibit or show. This prevents mistakes and avoids confusion.

Take note of exhibits and shows that have already occurred, but that you were interested in. Sign up for their mailing list to hear about future opportunities and place them on your calendar. Keep aspiring to reach new goals and grow your business—this means considering Calls to Artists that may be out of your current comfort zone.

The application process

Once you identify a Call you want to pursue, read every aspect of the application carefully. Many artists are not accepted because they miss small details in the application process. Make sure your jpegs are the correct resolution and are the best they can be. This is the first step of the jurying process that separates those accepted from those who are not.

Having juried online exhibits in the past, I can tell you that your images are your best shot (no pun intended) at presenting your work. If your artwork is textural, can the juror see the subtle changes in texture?  If the object is 3D, can the juror see all of it? Simple things like making sure your reflection doesn’t show in a photo say a lot about your professionalism.

On your calendar, note the details of drop off, set up, take down, and pick up. Will you need to designate someone else to drop off or pick up your work if you’re not available on the listed dates? Think about all the contingencies and have a plan.

When you are accepted

 

Your work isn’t over once you get accepted. Now is the time to tell the world how excited you are to be participating! Ask the convener of the exhibit or show for a press release and press kit so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Don’t rely on the show producer, exhibit coordinator, or gallerist to do all of the publicity work. This is a collaborative effort; each party has responsibilities to make the event as successful as possible. Contact your media list, social media list and email list. Share your excitement about the acceptance. And add information about the event to your website immediately, keeping your list of shows and exhibits up to date.

If this is a new show for you, decide how you are going to orient yourself before you arrive. Do you have a checklist of what to bring? (business cards and signage are the major items artists forget when I meet them at shows). Do you know anyone in the area? Are you involved in an organization that has a local chapter and can make some introductions?  If you have a specific theme, what local organizations might you partner with before you arrive? You may be an artist who works alone, but you need to enlist a team of supporters to be successful!

If you are not accepted

 

When you receive notice of non-acceptance, keep notes on any feedback that was provided by the juror. If none are offered, you can certainly ask! In my experience, sometimes an acceptance is merely a consideration of wall space. The juror liked your artwork and another person’s artwork. Their piece was a few inches smaller, so it was accepted and yours was not. Or theirs fit the theme of the exhibit better, once the jurying got underway. Learn from this experience. Otherwise, you will continue to throw your money out the window by applying for events with little understanding.

 

 

 

Art Gallery shot

 

Use your involvement to promote events and go beyond

 

 

Rickie’s 2-foot rule: Share your passion with anyone who comes within two feet of you! This includes your social media and your friends’ and colleagues’ social media. Include your compelling news in an email to everyone on your list. This is not the time to be shy. You are not asking for anyone to buy. You are sharing your passion.

Practice will help you feel comfortable with your elevator speech. Make it your own. As a jewelry artist, polymer clay creator, and mosaicist, I have changed my own delivery a number of times. What has not changed is my inspiration to create.

If someone in the grocery store asks how my day is going, I tell them how excited I am that I just was accepted into a national art show with my artwork! First, they are usually surprised that anyone actually responds to the question. Second, I find that most people are excited for me. Third, when they see me again, they are invested emotionally in how my art business is progressing.

I know you’re reading this and rolling your eyes. Will that clerk buy a $250 necklace from me? I don’t know. I never assume what people spend their money on or how much money they have. (A good book about this is The Millionaire Next Door). If that clerk isn’t interested, he or she may know someone who is. That is why you share your passion.

Impress the press

 

If the event you are doing involves a non-profit, make sure they have your press release to send out to their clients, volunteers, and board members. (A written agreement should delineate what they are responsible for and what you are responsible for).

Don’t wait until the “end of the year letter” to connect with everyone. Do it now. Include local media, such as local newspapers, arts newspapers, PBS radio, and local television. Don’t assume they won’t be interested. You cannot know what story lines they are currently developing, and yours might be perfect!

Get in touch with your network of contacts and ask them to share your exciting news with their friends and family (you’d do that for them, right?)

My own publication, The Rickie Report, has a production calendar that is often booked by organizations 6-9 months in advance for articles. While I have openings, it is best to contact me 6-8 weeks in advance to book a publication spot. Please don’t wait until the week before the exhibit to ask for one. That said, there are sometimes cancellations, so it never hurts to contact media resources at the last minute just in case.

Send out your press release and then follow up. Emails can get lost or go to spam, and are often unopened. You work too hard to let this slip through the cracks. If you don’t feel comfortable calling to see if they received it, send a text and a jpeg as a reminder.

You can also make an impression by sending a snail mail invitation. If you’re presenting a lecture at a local restaurant, for instance, send an invitation with one tea bag (in sturdy packaging) and ask the person to join you. Even if they can’t attend, you have caught their attention with your creativity and by going an extra step!

Creek District Sidewalk Mosaic Program Is In Full Swing! Meet Carol Schiff The Third Mosaic Artist To Participate And Vote For Design #4 Learning Mosaics Is Easy And You Can Join in!

Stuart’s Creek District Sidewalk Mosaic Program is in full swing as mosaicist #3, Carol Schiff, works to complete her dolphin design and voting is open for the fourth mosaic artist! Project coordinators, Corina Pelloni and Diane Concepcion are eager to share their wealth of knowledge with anyone who wants to explore the world of mosaic creations.  The Rickie Report gives you some sneak peeks of Carol’s work as all we information about voting for Mosaic Artist #4 and classes.

 

Meet   Carol   Schiff

Artist   of   the   Next   Sidewalk   Mosaic

 

Carol Hayes Schiff

 

 

Carol is a very skilled and experienced oil painter. Mosaic art is a new medium for her. A pleasure to have in the studio, she has been working diligently on her winning design, and has really taken to mosaic art like a… dolphin to water. 

 

 

 

Here is Carol’s original painting shown next to her work-in-progress:

 

 

 

page1image64188816

 

 

 

Carol is a Florida oil painter who loves the coastal beaches, flora and fauna of this tropical paradise. Her second love is the Asheville/Blue Ridge Mountains area. Her art features both of these sites.

 

Her painting style is characterized by exciting brushwork, contrast, hues, and texture from palette knives. She skillfully applies these techniques to images of landscapes, still lifes and animals.

 

With a client list that includes Warner Brothers, Netflix, CBS, Disney Channel and Duke University, you may have seen one of her paintings on the screen. One painting is in the 2019 movie ‘The Joker’. A few more make appearances in popular TV shows Magnum PI and Hawaii 5-0.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To see more of her work, visit her shop on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CarolSchiffStudio

 

 

 

Carol’s mosaic will be completed in a few more sessions. Then, it will be installed near Herban Botanicals on Colorado Ave, and we’ll gather to celebrate a new piece of public art in Downtown Stuart’s Creek District of Arts and Entertainment.

 

 

 

There’s more:

 

Don’t miss your opportunity to vote on the design for the 4th mosaic!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The location for this artwork will be the sidewalk at the intersection of 5th Street and A1A near Kiwanis Park. Both finalists designs are beautiful original artworks submitted by brilliant local artists, Marian Vitale and Deborah Bottorf.

 

 

 

 

 

For more information and application:  

 

thecreekdistrict.org/mosaic-program

 

 

 

Wondering  if  you’d  like  to  try  mosaic  art?

All are welcome to enter a design for consideration. When a contest is open, it will be accessible by the link above, and that’s also where information about the program can be found.

Another option is to take an intro to mosaics class. Classes are offered at Flagler Center on the first Saturday and third Wednesday of each month. You must register in advance for a workshop. Learn more and sign-up at:https://www.missingart.space/sign-up-for-an-intro-to-mosaics-workshop/

 

 

 

 

Thank you!

Women Supporting the Arts generously awarded financial support which will serve as start-up funding for this program. MartinArts donated a half ton of beautiful glass tile. The City of Stuart is making this addition of new public art possible. Thank you, as well, to the people and businesses of The Creek District who have expressed their enthusiasm and support of this program.

It’s all happening on:

 

 

With over 35 years’ experience in sales and marketing, Cheryl Phan has work with companies such as Clear Channel Radio, CBS Radio, Fox TV, Palm Beach Post, KB Advertising and she is the owner of three self-made businesses.  In 2002 Cheryl took a courageous step, leaving the TV and Radio industry to be her own boss and start her own decorative painting business in Palm Beach County Florida.

My Story

 

Cheryl shares with The Rickie Report, “I’m going to be very vulnerable right now and tell you what happened to me back in 2008. Remember the recession? It’s hard to forget especially when it hits you hard. I had a decorative painting business and I still do to this day, but back then I didn’t prepare myself for the what if….  The business was going great. I was making a ton of money. I had a crew of people working for me and life was good”. 

 

My wake-up call

 

Cheryl says, “Until the bomb hit, and everyone was losing their homes, including me and to make matters more challenging , I had a hip replacement a few months before it happened. I was in panic mode. I was scared and put my business on hold and took a job making peanuts working 40+ hours a week that barely paid my monthly bills.  The bad news was I was laid off. The good news is it forced me to take along hard look at my life and what I was going to do to generate an income. I swore I would never let that happen again. So, I put on my big girl panties, pulled up my bootstraps and started my decorative painting business back up again, but this time I made some changes. I knew that I couldn’t depend on painting one job at a time. That’s when I took my business online and started building multiple streams of income from my painting business”. 

 

 

Sure, it was a little bit of work…

but I only had two choices:

 

 

 

 #1 I could go work for someone else and live paycheck-to-paycheck with no job security.

 

 

OR…

 #2 I could step out of my comfort zone and learn new and innovative ways to build my business. 

 

 

 

I decided on option #2 the benefits outweighed the reality. 

(Let me say this, if I can do this at 64 years old, so can you!!!)

 

 

 

It’s not rocket science, it a learning curve!!!!

Fast forward to 2022

 

During my journey on social media, my following started grow, new leads started pouring in and people started asking me for advice on how to start their own business. (BTW, this is the number one reason most women never get started, because they don’t know where to start).  I spent numerous hours responding to DM’s and messages until one day I decided to take my business knowledge, and experience and start sharing it with other women who are in the same boat I was in just a few years ago. 

 

FULL DISCLOSURE

 

When I started my business 20 years ago, I had no clue what I was doing. I made a LOT of mistakes and many of them were costly. I don’t want to see others make the same mistakes. I’m also a true believer in “#paying it forward”. When you are a blessing to others you will also be blessed. So long story short, I am now coaching women how use their God given talent to make money online doing what they love. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for the good stuff!

 

 

 

I created a course called “First Things First”, because let’s face it, nobody has years to figure this out, especially when you’re over fifty. 

 

I’m giving away the first 5 modules from my course in a Free Mini course webinar. This is where I will teach you how to set up your business from scratch and get legit. Remember, If you’re not legit, you’re still a hobby. 

 

 

My hope is that you’ll not only feel inspired, but also know I’m here to help in any way I can. If you have a dream of starting a business, it is possible!

 

Get the details and let’s get you started!

Why Not, It’s FREE!

The #1 reason most women don’t start their own business is because they don’t know where to start. 


No more excuses, because I’m handing you the first 5 modules from my course on a silver platter. I’m going to show you exactly what you need to do to GET STARTED

Are you dabbling with your hobby and want to turn it into a real business?

 


If this is you, I want to invite you to my FREE Startup Mini Course. I’m going to teach you 5 easy steps to getting started in your own business without the tech.  I share step-by-step videos teaching you exactly what to do, I’ll give you worksheets to help you peruse through without being overwhelmed and all my resources, so you don’t have to figure it out on your own

 

Even if you have already started your business, I would encourage you to attend there may be some golden nuggets that will help you expand your business. Plus, I’ll have some awesome prizes for you to grab while you’re there.
