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.

 

Rickie Leiter, Publisher of The Rickie Report details our discussion questions at the inaugural Thriving Art Exchange at CJR Fine Art & Frame

 

 

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.

 

 

 

Participants in the Ft. Lauderdale Art-Business Conference February, 2019

 

 

 

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.)

 

 

Janeen Mason, Rickie Leiter, Ilene Gruber Adams, Deborah Bigeleisen

 

 

 

 

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”.

 

Thriving Art Exchange Inaugural Event at CJR Fine Arts & Frame

 

 

“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”.

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.

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.

What We learned from:

 

 

Jen Walls

In her submission application, artist Jen Walls (who recently moved to Broward from Charlotte, NC) stated: “As a new resident of Broward County, I am thrilled to find a vibrant, active art community filled with a wide variety of venues and events. The arts here are a fantastic example of what other parts of the country could accomplish with the type of widespread support you see here in South Florida.”

Jen is a newcomer to the area and went right into the fray!  We like her moxie!  Jen is the type of person we want to associate with…she sees opportunities in new situations! Her whimsical art strikes a chord!

· “Delirium” by Miami artists, Aida Tejada, Josepo and Sandra Garcia-Pardo shows the consequences of obsessive experimentations on their art when looking for accurate definitions of their emotions and dreams, as well as the role of art and its commitment to society. Tejada teaches experimental photography at her studio; Josepo incorporates reclaimed materials, from his work in the construction business, and gives them new life.  Sandra Garcia-Pardo is the 2011 recipient of the Miami-Dade Community and Tourist Development Council Grants Program.

 

 

Invite Aida to teach a workshop!

 

Ask Josepo if he offers tours of his studio…

· “The Nature of Women” explores the world outside cities and towns: the kingdoms of animals and plants, the sunsets, mountains and vistas that inspire us as viewed, specifically through the eyes of women. Through Phoenix Marks’ photography and Jen Walls mixed-media work, they challenge the viewer to question: “What does our view of the wild say about our own human nature?” Marks serves as President of the National League of American Pen Women (Fort Lauderdale Branch) and Vice President of the Broward Art Guild; Walls has taught art in North Carolina and will participate this summer in the Artist in Residence program at the Olive Stack Gallery in Ireland.

· “Nature” is an exhibit displaying two artists’ love and perspective on the world we live. Brett Aiton having extensive training with animals, shows his love and respect for the creatures that keep humanity alive in his colorful oil paintings. Cynthia Bebak Inklebarger is an experienced mixed-media artist that paints nature from an abstract lens. Her style ranges from finite detail to colorful representations of the environment. Both of their devotion to the outside is evident in their differing illustrations. Aiton’s admiration of wildlife began in his native Indiana and studies in Veterinary Medicine. He has also written a series of teenage fiction books. Inklebarger has taught art and served as a docent and researcher for a non-profit art institution in Miami.

 

Does your organization want to engage teens?  Animal lovers?

Brett is a great prospect!

Will he offer a workshop?  Call….

 

 

 

How can Cynthia’s abstract perspective draw in new learners?  The exploration of Mars is a hot topic!  What can she add to your classes?

· “Spectrums of Color” by Tatiana Cast, Terry Arroyo Mulrooney and Carlos Gonzalez, showcases the vision of three artists regarding colors, shapes and light.
