Announcing Kathy Collins' Talk on the Business Side of Art

Updates: I corrected Kathy's email address below.

Please note the change from September 20 to September 27.

At some point after you begin taking casual art classes for recreation and before you decide to pawn your children and go to Tahiti to live on the beach and paint, some inevitable questions arise, such as,

"I have this growing stack of paintings. What should I do with them?"
"How can I buy art supplies without plundering our retirement accounts to pay for them?"
"How can I share my creations with others who will appreciate them?"
If any of these questions, or similar ones, have occurred to you, then you might want to attend Kathy Collins' talk, The Business of Art. Most people who find themselves drawn to art are not simultaneously drawn to business, but the truth is that the artist needs to know something about business to make the most of their work and their talent. Kathy's been there and has a lot of it figured out. She understands the business end of art from an artist's perspective because she's got her own successful art career.

Please join us for Kathy's talk on Tuesday, September 27th at 1:30 PM at the Kaewyn Art Gallery in downtown Bothell. The cost is $20 per person. The talk will take about an hour and will be followed by a question and answer session, so write down all those things you've been wondering and Kathy will do her best to help you with an answer or approach that works for you.

IMPORTANT: To guarantee a seat for the talk, please preregister by emailing kathy.collins2 @comcas​t.net (remove the spaces in the email address).

Topics covered will be:
  • How Kathy got into the art world from the world of science and medicine
  • Improving your art, getting a style
  • Organizing your art
  • Getting into juried shows
  • Getting into a gallery
  • Getting your art published in a magazine
  • Steps to begin teaching
This event is sponsored by the Seattle Watercolor Meetup Group.
