Showing your art can be daunting. 

With this workshop, you’ll learn the rules of the road to find the exhibition opportunities that are absolutely right for
you -- because some won’t be! 

Learn about all the different kinds of art galleries out there, the common misunderstandings artists have about how art galleries work, and the fork in the road that many artists face over the course of their careers that you too may be staring at. 

This is the course I wish that every artist, client and student I’ve ever worked with could have taken.

From Katie:

No one else is teaching this stuff this way.

I mean, it’s taken me 15 years to figure it out and I have a Master’s degree in visual arts and worked in and showed my own work with most of the kinds of galleries I want to teach people about. 

Really, this is the BIGGEST misconception that artists have about galleries: that they are ALL THE SAME, when really they each work very differently. 

And that you can save yourself a whole lot of time and money and heartache if you know about that. 

Because, sadly, there are some kinds of art that will never show at certain kinds of galleries. But no one tells artists which is which… which can be very frustrating and disheartening! 

So, let me save you all the trouble and take this course, and I’ll teach you which kind of gallery your work is absolutely perfect for.
