Price: $75, register here.

“Exhibiting your work is an exciting experience for all artists. But until you have the opportunity to mount an exhibition yourself, how can one understand the practical steps towards a successful exhibition?

All artists should collaborate closely with staff to ensure the broadest possible audience including research towards securing sponsorship, planning for publication and publicity well in advance, editing work to suit the venue, installation design and related graphics, arranging for related educational events and more.

In this two-hour illustrated seminar, Mary Virginia Swanson outlines practical steps to take when planning the launch of your show whether being held at a public space or private venue. Participants will gain a broad awareness of the exhibition experience.”

Iris Nights Lecture Series: To Be Published or Self-Publish? Options for Artists Today

The publishing industry is undergoing extraordinary changes. The print-on-demand revolution has opened up new possibilities, and it has never been easier or more affordable to produce a book of your photographs. The traditional publishing path has the advantage of a highly specialized team who brings their expertise in design, production, marketing and distribution systems. With self-publishing, you can create exactly the book you envision, but without the support of professionals at a publishing house. In the changing landscape of the photo book industry which publishing scenario is right for you at this time in your career?

In this presentation, Mary Virginia Swanson will discuss both avenues to publishing, and help participants determine the pros/cons for their unique needs. Swanson will share resources from Publish Your Photography Book, a respected title she coauthored with Darius Himes, which has recently been updated and expanded (Princeton Architectural Press, Spring 2014).
