The Artist Round Table Sessions focused on writing an artist statement are over and plans are in the works for the next topic. If you weren’t able to attend a session this summer, you can still get a copy of the Artist Statement “Cheat Sheet” used to guide the discussion. The Cheat Sheet contains tips that can help any visual artist who needs to write an artist statement. Get your copy here when you sign up for the Artisan Advantage newsletter.
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!

Are you struggling to write an artist statement? Do you need an artist statement, but are unsure where to begin writing one?
Pittsburgh and surrounding area artists are invited to participate in an Art Marketing Round Table Discussion, hosted by Gilberti Fine Art Studio and Gallery in Coraopolis, PA. Art marketing consultant Becky Sciullo and artist/gallery owner Cindy Gilberti will lead a discussion focused on writing an artist statement. There are two different opportunities to attend in order to accommodate schedules.
The round tables will start with a short 15 minute overview of the topic, followed by group discussion with an opportunity for artists to ask questions, share ideas and listen to what other artists have to say about the topic.
The events are free of charge. Size is limited to 15 participants per session and pre-registration is required. Please register at one of the links below.
If you have an artist statement that you’d like to share or review, bring it along. If not, that’s fine too! Just come prepared to take notes.
