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.

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.

Visual Artists: How Will You Optimize Your Business? Come With The Rickie Report To The Next Art-Business Conference February 1-2

Artists and creative professionals lead busy  – heck, not just busy, INDUSTRIOUS – lives!  That’s the key reason The Clark Hulings Fund For Visual Artists brings art-business education to regions of the country (Dallas, New York City, Santa Fe, Denver, and Ft. Lauderdale).  CHF gives working artists key opportunities to accelerate their careers and optimize their businesses without  committing to a residency far from their studios or to return to their alma mater and ask, “Why was this not built in from the start?”  The next Art-Business Conference takes place in Ft. Lauderdale on February 1-2.  Save an extra $50 with a special discount code for our readers!  This is open to ALL visual artists.  Rickie will be appearing on one of the panels. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arts organizations are already on the ground in these communities, and each one seeks to serve its local constituency. The Art-Business Conference is a way for CHF to collaborate with those groups to extend their mission, bring in powerful expertise, and create more engagement and awareness around what they offer. We do this by inviting those organizations to participate directly, through logistics and sponsorship.

 

 

 

Local and enterprise businesses have more in common with artists than they often realize. Creative professionals are not only powerful economic contributors, but they utilize other businesses, creating a net gain for both sides. Many companies have already declared a cultural mission or made a commitment to corporate social responsibility, and CHF provides a way, through commercial sponsorships, to achieve those aims while also connecting them with new customers and loyal brand advocates.

 

 

 

Other community groups focus on goals such as creating a resilient local culture, sponsoring minority and women’s participation in career growth and economic development, and fostering a more robust business community. These groups are natural partners that find in CHF an organization that “gets it” and offers creative ways to do something that’s visible and garners publicity, yet also substantive, producing a measurable effect, through solid data, metrics, and analytics.

 

 

It doesn’t end with live learning or professional networking events. CHF offers follow-up programs to every event attendee, including a digital learning portal, online community, and—for those who are interested—our rigorous Art-Business Accelerator Fellowship (for which we are currently reviewing the 2019 applicants).

 

 

FORT LAUDERDALE: It’s still early enough to get involved (as an artist or entity) in the Ft. Lauderdale Art-Business Conference, February 1-2, 2019.

 

 

Artists and creative professionals will be blueprinting their careers, developing an action plan to make their businesses thrive, creating a brand narrative to win significant audience share, and building a strategy to optimize their income streams.

 

Everything CHF stands for can be understood from what we’re doing on the ground in locations all over the US. If you want to learn more, recruit us as a partner to your company or organization, or plug into one of our programs. Visit us at clarkhulingsfund.org to let us know you’re interested.

Understand Photography Studio tells The Rickie Report, “We are so honored to bring Carolyn Edlund of Artsy Shark as a guest instructor for this workshop. We held this workshop in February and it sold out months ahead of time, so don’t procrastinate on registering”!  This workshop is designed to get you prepared to take immediate action on your journey to sell your fine art photography.

 

Carolyn Edlund Photography Workshop

 

 

Topics to be covered:

Build Your Portfolio. What defines a saleable collection of photographic art? What are the common mistakes that undermine photographers? This presentation will address how to create a thoughtful, compelling portfolio designed to appeal to your chosen audience. Bring your laptop with your best images. We will be working hands-on with each student to put together their best portfolio.

 

 

 

Know Your Audience. Successful photographers have a clear concept that appeals to their target audience. We’ll help you niche, niche, niche to really understand the psychology of who will buy your artwork and why. This presentation addresses marketing principles, sales triggers, building value, and buyer behavior. Using examples of photographers with strong core concepts, we’ll take a look at how this works – then apply it to your personal situation and goals. This essential session can be transformative!

 

Carolyn Edlund Consulting With an Artist

Tell Your Story. Excellent photography is crucial to making sales, but your story is equally important. Buying art is an emotional decision. As you learn how to best share your passion, your technique and your expertise, you make yourself as the photographer an integral part of every purchase. In this workshop, you will begin to write and hone your own artist story, and understand how to tell it.

 

 

 

 

Brand Your Business. Once your portfolio is put together, you’ll need to think about branding. This includes your website, your color schemes, your framing, and your booth design if you are doing art shows. Build a memorable brand through consistency and professionalism – we’ll show you how.

 

 

 Carolyn Edlund in Consultation

 

 

 

Create Your Plan. What vision do you have for yourself as a photographer selling your work? What goals do you have? What are the options, and different marketplaces available, and which will you choose? This part of the workshop will focus on a step-by-step plan for each attendee to move forward after the program is completed.

 
Bonus: Understand Photography founder Peggy Farren will present:

What do judges look for in competition and for a juried position in an art show?

 

Carolyn Edlund:

 

 Carolyn Edlund has an extensive background as an entrepreneur, writer, speaker and art business consultant. Her background includes owning a production ceramic studio for twenty years, selling product into over 1,000 retail accounts during that time. Subsequently, she was an outside sales rep for the largest art publisher in the world, earning “Rep of the Year” honors. In 2009, she founded ArtsyShark, recognized as a “Top 10” art blog by Art Business News, which publishes art marketing and business articles, and features individual artists in portfolio articles. She is also the Executive Director of the Arts Business Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to professional development for artists and makers, that presents business workshops throughout the U.S. and internationally.

Wondering How Other Artists’ Work is Being Shown in Galleries and Exhibits? Attend The Seminar With Rickie, Ilene, and Raquel

Wondering how other artists have their work accepted into galleries?  Arthouse429’s Raquel Williams, Ilene Adams and Rickie Leiter are offering an opportunity to learn how to move your artwork into a more public domain.  Their previous seminar in the Fall, 2014, yielded a gallery contract for one of the attendees and two others had their work accepted into new exhibits ( including an international art show)!  This two-part, inter-active seminar is for emerging as well as established artists.  We’ll look at basics such as business cards, websites and artist statements plus incorporate behind-the-scenes information only a gallerist can share.  The Rickie Report shares the details and looks forward to meeting you at the seminars!
