Artist Entrepreneurial Workshop: May 12, 2011

This spring, the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts will continue its fifth year of offering free work shops for professional New Hampshire artists who are seeking to enhance their business skills, promote their work, and network with other artists.

The following workshop is free and open to the public, but you must register by calling (603) 271-2789 or email elaine.loft@dcr.nh.gov
.  In lieu of a registration fee, registrants are asked to contribute canned foods or pasta for the local food bank.  These sessions will be held at the Brown Building Auditorium at 129 Pleasant Street in Concord, New Hampshire.

Approaching Galleries: 10am – 12 noon
Presenter Sarah Chaffee, Gallery Director, McGowan Fine Art
In this workshop learn how to prepare a high quality artist’s package, including a biography, artist statement, articles, retail price list and digital images. Ms. Chaffee will also address how to research and approach galleries, the ins and outs of contracts, and how to promote yourself to the press.

Pricing Your Work: Art or Science?: 3 – 5 pm
Presenter Gary Chabot, ProfitPoint Business and Finance Counseling
In this workshop attendees will explore the facts, fiction and mysteries of pricing works of art. Is it all about the numbers? Is it all guess work? How do your perceptions of value differ with other buyers and sellers of art? Learn how “price point” passion and real world economics mix it up in the world of art and business.

I am attending this!  I called this morning and there was still room!  If you are planning to go, let me know!  We can meet for lunch!  : )
