ARTIST DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS

PREPARING YOUR ART FOR EXHIBITION

Robert Bowman
Skill level: ALL

You’ve finished your masterpiece! What’s next? Join Exhibits Director Bob Bowman to discuss showing your artwork and preparing your artwork for display. We’ll discuss both the visual and functional aspects of framing and matting selection for 2-D work and base design for sculpture. We’ll discuss the differences between a domestic presentation and a gallery or other public presentation of artwork. We’ll also spend some time discussing the process of assembling a portfolio of your work and applying for exhibit or sale opportunities.

Enrollment limited to 25; ages 16 and up

STANDING OUT IN A JURIED SHOW

Robert Bowman
Skill level: ALL

What works in a juried show and why? Join Exhibits Director Bob Bowman for a group discussion on selecting and submitting work for shows. He’ll share insights gleaned from years of watching jurors select artworks, as well as his own curating experiences. We’ll tour the Members’ Juried Show and discuss how different pieces function in the context of an exhibit. Please note: we will not be critiquing individual work in the Members Show; we will use the show as a departure point for our discussion. It is recommended to have viewed the show independently before the class date.

Enrollment limited to 30; ages 16 and up
