Art School + The Art World: Filling the Gap

Art School + The Art World: Filling the Gap

Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.

Harvey B. Gantt Center
551 South Tryon Street
Charlotte, NC 28202

Free with registration

This interactive, professional development session is for college students and emerging artists who wish to delve into more commercial areas of art while maintaining a fine arts practice.

Dr. Taha will address proactive strategies to nurture successful careers as fine artists; the how-to of being a practicing artist; how to market oneself; how to conduct studio visits and gallery interviews; sales and exhibition options; how to locate funding sources and how to benefit from the academic side of the art world.

This conversation bridges the gap between art-making and its relationship to the the art world, fills the void found in most fine art curriculums and demystifies the commercial art world.

Listen: Dr. Halima Taha on the African American Art Market since the 80’s and the impact of the best-selling book Collecting African American Art: Works on Paper and Canvas. Interviewed by Najee Dorsey.
