The Do's and Don'ts: How to approach and create strong business partnership

I am going to be helping teach an upcoming free class in Seattle. Everyone is welcome! Come get all your questions answered about showing your work at galleries or shops.

Do you have a great product or fabulous art, but aren't sure about how to go about getting into stores? Have questions about how to approach store owners? Wonder about presentation? What makes owners choose to carry one artist's work and not another's? How to follow up without seeming pushy? If you're interested in getting some basic tips on the "do's" and "dont's" of working with store/boutique/gallery owners then...

Come to Vermillion on Thursday January 28th! Get great advice from local store/gallery owners (and other artists) for getting your work out there, and creating strong and lasting business partnerships that will help you take your business to the next level. This will be an open discussion format, please come ready to throw out your questions!

When: Wednesday, January 28th at 7 p.m.

Where: Vermillion, 1508 11th Ave, Seattle, WA 98144 (map) Vermillion has food and drinks.

Cost: Free

Panel:
Andrea Porter of Bluebottle Art Gallery
Kristen Rask of Schmancy
Cheryl Robinson of Twilight Artist Collective
Annie Huntly of Dotted Line
