Join us for a free Zoom workshop for emerging artists who identify as Black, Indigenous, or Persons of Colour (BIPOC) to develop a submission package to the 2021 AGH Art Sale.
We acknowledge the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s past accountability in maintaining systemic barriers, and are committed to establishing inclusive and accessible anti-oppressive practices as we work towards building relationships with artists of all backgrounds.
Establishing a career as a professional artist can involve many daunting tasks, such as applying to commercial galleries and art fairs. In this workshop participants will work in a small group with an art consultant from the AGH Art Sales + Services program to put together a complete artist package which could then be submitted to the 2021 AGH Art Sale. The consultant will advise participants on best practices to document and edit images of their artwork, write an artist statement, establish artwork prices, and create a CV/resume. For works on paper, the consultant can also advise on edition, framing, and presentation practices.
The intention of this workshop is to share skills and tips that can turn compelling submission packages into tangible commercial gallery opportunities. While we will use the juried 2021 AGH Art Sale taking place in April of 2021 as a template, we hope to build skills applicable to other commercial venues. The workshop looks to provide support to BIPOC artists and aims to build equitable practices within our own commercial activities.
This inaugural session will be delivered by art consultants Tara Westermann and Jasmine Lazdins.
Please note: Each of the four sessions will have a maximum of 6 registrants and will be identical in content, so please only register for one session to allow space for others.
