Your Exhibition: The Checklist

“Exhibiting your work is an exciting experience for all artists. But until you have the opportunity to present your prints to the public, how can you understand the strategic and practical steps towards mounting a successful exhibition?

In this illustrated seminar, Mary Virginia Swanson outlines a step-by-step guide to planning and presenting an exhibition of your work. Whether your exhibition is being hosted at a public space or private venue, all artists should collaborate closely with staff to ensure the broadest possible audience engages with the work during your exhibition. This includes conducting strategic research towards securing sponsorship and publicity well in advance, editing work to fit the space, planning the installation design and related graphics, arranging for related educational programming and more. Lastly, Swanson will provide insights into the value of producing a printed catalogue and offering your exhibition to additional venues. Participants will gain a broad awareness of the exhibiting experience.  Class ID SB8.
