Over the course of five days, Mary Virginia discusses the value of investing in juried exhibitions, portfolio reviews, and other industry events, and how producing targeted publications can advance your career. Participants develop an understanding of issues surrounding commercial image licensing and how to assess value for these rights.

Mary Virginia discusses the value of investing in juried exhibitions, portfolio reviews, and other industry events, and how producing targeted publications can advance your career. Participants develop an understanding of issues surrounding commercial image licensing and how to assess value for these rights.

We explore the roles that galleries, art consultants, and online sales venues play in the fine art collecting market. In addition to classroom sessions, Mary Virginia leads participants on special site visits with industry professionals, including a gallerist, a museum curator, and professionals involved with photography books. Lastly, she conducts a one-on-one session with each participant providing “next steps.”

If you have reached a place of competency and confidence in your craft and vision it’s time to take your professional exposure to the next level, under the guidance of a trusted consultant.”
