LIVE ART MARKETING SEMINAR April 23, 2011 – Westminster CA
On Saturday, April 23, 2011 from 10:30 a.m. to Noon I’ll be giving a seminar on ART MARKETING at the Catalyst Art Center in Westminster, CA. Cost is $25.00 per person. Call the Art Supply Warehouse to sign up at 714.891.3626.
Did you ever notice that some artists get all the press? And then others, sometimes the most talented, are rarely talked about. There’s a reason for this.
The public and media tend to pay attention to the artist that is well marketed, not the most talented. This means that you, with all of your talent, must put a strong effort into promoting your work.
In this lecture, the artist will learn how to increase their exposure through various marketing avenues, as well as feel comfortable about promoting their work.
The artist will learn tried and true methods to expose their artwork to collectors, galleries and the media.
There are many ways to expose your art to the world. At the end of this lecture, you’ll have a few new tricks up your sleeve to market yourself and your work!
Sign up today!
ASK DREW AND MARIA BROPHY INTERVIEW WITH TARA REED JANUARY 19, 2011
Artist Drew Brophy and his wife and marketing guru, Maria, will be answering your questions about art licensing on Wednesday, January 19, 2011…will you be listening?
Drew and Maria Brophy know art licensing. Drew is best known for his wild, crazy surfboard designs (he has painted thousands) but that is just a fraction of the artwork that he creates. If you ask Drew what he does for a living, he’ll say “It’s my job to make thing look cool.”
Drew has been a professional artist for over 20 years, making his art available to many great companies to make things look cool, including tiki sculptures, skateboards, wakeboards, bikes, shoes, clothing lines, fabric designs, greeting cards, children’s books and more. His wife, Maria, is the business mind behind the brand and we will have both the Brophys on the line!
Join us for Drew & Maria Brophy’s live (FREE) 60 minute teleseminar on Wednesday, January 19, 2011 (5:30 pm Pacific / 8:30 pm Eastern)
