Today was the first in a series of Art Marketing Round Table events in the Pittsburgh area. Full disclosure – we met at a rectangular table…but it worked! Eleven artists with a wide range of talents came together to learn about and discuss writing an artist statement. Everyone participated and shared thoughts, frustrations, and ideas about writing their statements.
The event was enough of a success that we decided to have a follow-up meeting in a few weeks after everyone takes the time to use what was learned today and work on their statements. Not only did we benefit from listening to other artist ideas, but some new relationships were formed.
If you missed today’s event, there is a second Round Table scheduled for this Saturday, June 24th. The event will be the same format that was facilitated today, to give another group of artists an opportunity to learn and grow in this area.
Thanks to Cindy Gilberti at Gilberti Fine Art Studio & Gallery for hosting the event, and thanks to the artists who came and participated fully in the discussion!
