...Grow & Succeed as an Artist!
While I know social media, blogs, newsletters, and the occasional email are wonderful ways to stay connected, I never want to overlook the power of connecting face-to-face with my favorite artists. There is nothing more valuable or worth my time and energy than spending one-on-one time with the people who make my business possible.
Face Time with Artists & Art Experts
Something special always happens when I am in someone’s presence and taking the time to listen and get to know them. Invariably, I’ll learn something new and usually come away feeling energized, inspired, grateful, not to mention closer to the person I just spent time with. Sometimes, magic happens. I’ll notice a tone of voice or an odd expression, and I’ll realize that I need to follow up with a question. Before I know it, I’ve discovered something I never would have through an impersonal text or email. There simply is nothing better than spending real time, with real people in this otherwise virtual world we live in.
Make Connections in the Art Industry
Now I know most artists prefer solitude, however, I can’t emphasize this enough: You absolutely need to schedule time in your calendar for real—live—people, in real time. Trust me, I know, that seems like an impossible thing to ask for. When you’re responsible for everything from sales to sweeping the floors, life as a business owner and artist can become lonely, overwhelming, and hectic. And this is precisely the reason you must find ways to get away and connect with other people if you want to sustain life as a working artist.
Take Your Art Career to the Next Level
That’s why I designed the Success Summit, a conference for artists, which will take place June 9th-10th, 2017 right here at ADC. And, it’s just for artists like you—busy, hard-working, and trying to take your art career to the next level. I wanted to create an experience where artists could come together to learn how to succeed in their business, network with gallery owners, interior designers, art consultants, and industry leaders, all the while making lifelong connections with other artists. I wanted to give you, the artist, a forum for making a great impression on potential clients, gallery owners, and industry experts.
Free Portfolio Reviews
I also wanted to give you opportunities to get feedback from both peers and experts. In fact, the first 9 artists to register for the VIP two-day Success Summit package, will receive free, complimentary portfolio reviews! More than anything, I wanted to give you the opportunity to become inspired and energized, so you can go back to your studios and create like never before.
Most of us know that being an artist is a solitary endeavor and we don’t get much down time either. So, of course, I’ve built in ample opportunity for you to relax, enjoy yourself, and celebrate all of your accomplishments as an artist!
I hope you’ll join me and several of your peers from all over the country this June 9th-10th. Learn more about Success Summit and invite your friends! The more the merrier!
I can’t wait to see you and catch up in person!
