If you wish for your book to function as an path to new audiences via additional platforms, targeted research and presentation formats must be championed such as exhibitions with related educational programing can extend awareness and attention to the book throughout the tour of the show. From examining existing and desired audiences to the possibility of exhibitions this workshop will broaden perspectives and methods that aid in securing exposure for your book and your work.

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.
