Professional Practices for the Visual Artist

April 27 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Back by popular demand, this workshop, presented by Jeffery Allison, Paul Mellon Collection Educator and Statewide Manager at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA), is devoted to the needs of the individual artist. Topics include photographing artwork, funding opportunities, developing professional relationships with galleries and publications, copyright issues, and marketing on the web. This program has been organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and is supported, in part, by the Paul Mellon Endowment and the Jean Stafford Camp Memorial Fund. This exhibition is done in partnership with Target Gallery’s 2019 Emerging Artists exhibition, to support more opportunities for artists in the DMV area. Artists of all skill-levels and stages are welcome.
