This workshop is for STEAMhouse members only

Curator, gallerist and mentor Ceri Hand joins us for a no-holds-barred workshop on different strategies for engaging with the art market, whether selling and pricing work from your studio or working with commercial galleries. It’s a big topic … but she will attempt to demystify how the art market works, how galleries find artists, what artists should expect from this relationship, what good, and bad, practice looks like and what impact COVID-19 may have in the future.
This workshop will be useful for artists who are interested in generating income through sales, whether selling work to private buyers or into public collections. There will be time to ask questions during the session.

This event is hosted by Eastside Projects and is for STEAMhouse members only. Find out more about joining HERE.
