To help develop our creative community in 2017, the Arts Center is offering a series of free "Business of the Arts" workshops that cover all sorts of essential topics. It begins with a presentation by gallerist and author J. Jason Horejs at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on January 23 at 6:30pm. He will be speaking on his successful strategies for creating relationships with collectors and closing sales. Jason is the owner of Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale and is the author of two books for artists, Starving to Successful and How to Sell Art. On January 30 at the Arts Center, attorney Bill Gilliam will speak and answer questions about "art and the Law, " including artists rights and intellectual property, consignment agreements, and more. But wait, there's more...        

On February 6 at the Arts Center, Isabelle Cozart (manager of Lanning Gallery in Sedona) will talk about how to choose and approach galleries for representation, and how to maintain a good relationship with your gallerists. Cozart will also offer stories from the inside perspective and field questions from attendees. And February 13 brings a presentation by our own marketing director, Kelli Klymenko, and gallery director, Cyndi Thau, who will guide artists in preparing professional portfolios, improving their presentations, and developing strategies for the Artist’s Statement.

To close out the Spring professional development opportunities, we'll be offering a 2-D Critique with local master artists Julie B. Engelmann, Christine Debrosky, and M.L. Coleman on February 27 from 6:30 to 8 pm, followed by a 3-D Critique with leading artists Kim Kori, Susan Kliewer, and Dennis Ott on March 6. The critique sessions are intended for local artists and provide a chance to hear perspectives from a variety of professional artists in a friendly group setting.
