FREE Workshop – How To Create An Effective Artist Statement

Thursday June 28th, 6-7:30pm
Free (thanks to an anonymous sponsor)Artists of all mediums and levels struggle with the concept of writing an artist statement. Many feel their work should speak for itself, and the reason they create art in the first place is so they don’t have to explain it in words. But an effective artist statement can draw the audience into an artist’s work in ways the work alone never could. It gives the artist an opportunity to connect on a deeper level with their audience, and become truly memorable, which also leads to more word-of-mouth, and more sales.
Using potent examples and tips from actual gallery managers, I explain how the artist statement can be useful, how it can bring about more sales, how it can help someone become more emotionally attached to the artwork, and then give a number of useful takeaways for creating an effective artist statement that can be tailored for each unique artist, and can accomplish those goals.
