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.

Tickets: Meeting Place Registrant $40 / General Admission $80 / Student with ID $40

April 30th, Philly: Join MVS for her “Beyond Print” seminar this Saturday!

Beyond Print: Creative Communication in the Digital Era

Hosted by the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center

Space is still available!!  Click here to register.

Saturday, April 30, 2011, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm

MVS will be presenting a four-hour seminar on Saturday morning, April 30th.  Developing new audiences across the world has never been easier for artists, or more affordable.  To communicate effectively, artists must consider who their target audience is, “where” they are (both geographically and within the digital environment), and how to best communicate to them.  As artists transition from primarily print pieces into websites and e-communication, can their brand graphics continue to be effective?  Mary Virginia Swanson will discuss identifying an audience, the need to communicate in the “space” they live online, and in the most suitable language.  Examples of effective print pieces, websites, emails and social network pages will be shared to underscore the value of brand continuity and clarity. This will be a large, information-packed, and fast-paced seminar.

Fee: $50 prior to April 30th • $65 at the door • $25 Students/Faculty
FREE to PPAC Members. Please RVSP via email at info@philaphotoarts.org
