This Business Called Art


"This Business Called Art" is a panel discussion co-hosted by Arts Habitat, Carmel Art Association and the Monterey Museum of Art. The event will be held at the Monterey Museum of Art, 559 Pacific St., Monterey, in the museum's main gallery. The doors will open at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, June 11; the panel will start promptly at 6:30. Wine and light hors d'oeurves will be available.  Tickets are $40 at the door; $35 presale through Ticket Guys or by check to Arts Habitat.


The evening is directed at the needs of visual artists who are interested in the fundamental business side of art-- finding an audience for their work: lookers, buyers, collectors. The three panelists and moderator will provide an overview of how artists market their work now, and how traditional methods (gallery representation, exhibitions, museums) and new methods (social media, web presence) work, or do not. There will be ample opportunity for questions from audience members.


Workshops covering other topics of interest specific to the business of art will be presented in the fall.The attendees of the panel event will be asked which topics they would like to see covered in the workshops.


The panel members are:
