To Be Published or Self Publish? An Overview of Publishing Models Today

With the print-on-demand revolution, it has never been easier or more affordable for artists to produce and market a book of their work. While the traditional publishing path has the advantage of a seasoned team with experience in design, production, marketing and distribution, self-publishing allows the artist full creative control. Which approach is best for you and your work? Swanson will demystify the process for both scenarios, as well as lend advice on marketing your book at its release and beyond.

Conference registration required for attendance. Register here.

March 14th, Houston: MVS Seminar “Who Buys Prints? An Update on the Marketplace for Fine Prints”

FotoFest Biennial 2018 | Professional Development Seminar
Who Buys Prints? An Update on the Marketplace for Fine Prints
Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 10:00 am—4:00 pm

Today, challenges to the traditional artist/dealer relationship are impacted by changes in consumer interests and purchasing habits, and the rise of new sales venues for acquiring art. In addition to sales through galleries, purchases occur at art fairs and via online sales venues, through third-parties such as art consultants & interior designers as well as acquiring works directly from artists. The centuries-old art market is ripe for new models.

Confirmed industry panelists are as follows: PEGGY SUE AMISON, Creative Director, East West, Dubai UAE | DARREN CHING, co-owner, KlompChing Gallery, NYC | NATASHA EGAN Executive Director, MoCP, Chicago | private collector JOAN MORGENSTERN, Houston | LIANA SCHWAITZBERG,  Corporate Art Advisor, MKG Art Management, Houston | and LISA VOLPE, Associate Curator, MFA Houston.

Join us for the seminar between Review Sessions 1 & 2, at the Whitehall Houston Hotel.
