2012 Artists' Workshops

“Developing New Markets for Your Art”
Friday, February 17, 10am - 12noon

Markets for art are changing; there are many options beyond the traditional gallery setting. You can jump onto the internet by opening a “store” on Etsy or reach out to your audience through an “art market.” In this workshop geared toward visual artists, Katy Solsky (Director of the Concord Art Market), Susan Schwake (Artistic Director of artstream studios, a gallery, media design and art academy in Rochester) and Megan Bogonovich (a sculptor and 2008 NH State Council on the Arts Fellow) will offer their insights on marketing one’s art through both the internet and direct sales. The panel discussion will be followed by questions from the audience. On-line viewing of pertinent web sites will guide participants to new venues.

“What does it take to be a profitable artist?  Services, resources and ideas from Artspire and the New York Foundation for the Arts”
Friday, April 27, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon
Artists in all disciplines looking for jobs, opportunities, grants and professional development are invited to attend a workshop sponsored by the Vermont Arts Council and the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts that covers free and low-cost national services and resources offered by Artspire and the New York Foundation for the Arts.  Eleanor Whitney, Program Officer for External Affairs and Fiscal Sponsorship from Artspire, a program of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), will present on Artspire/NYFA’s resources, fundraising and support programs available nationwide for artists at every stage in their careers.

Whitney will also discuss the new book The Profitable Artist, which covers techniques for planning your career, fundraising, marketing and selling your work, networking strategies for a digital world, and budgeting, financial and legal basics for artists.

Wednesday, May 23, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon
Artists in all disciplines are invited to attend a workshop featuring Christine Halvorson, founder of Halvorson New Media in Hancock, N.H.  Halvorson will talk about how artists can use LinkdedIn, Facebook, Twitter, blogging and other on-line FREE social media tools to advance their careers.  This workshop will provide the basics and the theory behind using social media.  Only one hour per day of on-line marketing can make a huge difference in promoting your work!
