Six pages of notes and a breath of fresh air at Marketing for the Visual Artist
The Marketing for the Visual Artist Seminar was at the News-Journal Center in Daytona Beach. The wind moving through the palms and the glistening water reminded me of how it has been way too long since I have been to the beach, funny from some one who lives in Florida! Thank you Barbara Perrotti, the chairman for this excellent seminar (she is also in my super cow video!). It was a pleasure as always to see Jennifer Coolidge in action. She never fails to impress me with her events. I recently visited the Museum of Florida Art in Deland where she is the Executive Director, for an exhibit of my friends Jack Thursby and Rima Jabbur, both who I actually met in Ocala Florida. Speaking of which it was so nice to see my friend Nancy Moskovitz who was the first presenter at the seminar. This link goes directly to the 10 art marketing resources list she shares on her new marketing blog. Jeff Shonkwiler of Florida Artist Registry continued with Internet marketing. Curator Josh Garrick from Milenia Fine Arts spoke about "Art is Not Your Most Important Product, You Are". He also discussed the video I made for him! That was exciting for me to hear him respond to how it touched his life and impacted his views about me and my art. We played it yet the natural sunlight kept it from being seen by many in the audience so here is a link to Josh's Video. "This One's for You Josh". I have four pages of invaluable information just from Josh. We broke for box lunches and table discussions with Sarah Higgins, Tim Ludwig, Jennifer Kerr Marsch, John Wilton, Jackie Schindehette and more... Kudos to all involved. And THANK YOU!
