Oxygen Art Centre is excited to offer a short, online workshop titled, How to Submit to Commercial Galleries led by internationally renowned professional artist Kristy Gordon. On Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 2:00 -5:000 pm Gordon will unveil the practical steps you can take to develop a connection with a commercial gallery.
This course is for artists that are interested in obtaining professional representation in order to help promote and sell their work, so they can focus on creating. In this course artists will learn how to make initial contact with a gallery; how to prepare a professional artist C.V., Biography, and Artist’s Statement; and how to select the images to submit. It will also cover current techniques for building connections with galleries using Instagram. Through lecture, discussions, and individual feedback, this workshop will demystify how to gain representation by a commercial gallery.
