MARKETING AND PR STRATEGIES
Many artists are daunted by the idea of public relations. PR is generally recognised as a vital part of the success of any endeavour or business venture and is a vital vehicle in attracting a gallery, buyers and positive reviews to you and your work. This seminar will show you how to market yourself and your work and how to implement and use PR strategies to your advantage.
- How to produce an artist statement, biography and CV
- How to write a press release
- How to find press contacts and how to approach the press
- How to document your work in different formats and the best way to send out to interested parties.
- Time management and press deadlines
SETTING UP AND LAUNCHING AN EXHIBITION
This part of the workshop will explain the practicalities of organising an exhibition form A – Z. You will be guided through the processes involved, from the initial concept and research, through to agreements, layout and the display of artwork. You will also be advised on insurance, public liability and health and safety requirements. We will also cover how to implement effective sales strategies for your opening night and the duration of your exhibition.

Space for Creation
10 December 2014 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Griffin Gallery will be hosting ‘Space for Creation’, a panel discussion about the impact of space on creation and artistic practice. We are particularly interested in having a conversation about the effect that studio space and residencies have on the artistic process, recognizing that a rural residency in another culture is a very different dynamic to an urban residency or a local opportunity.
This is of particular interest to us since Griffin Gallery offers short term residencies to artists, international and UK based.
Gordon Cheung, one of this year’s Griffin Art Prize judges, Evy Jokhova, a former resident artist at Florence Trust and current GAP shortlisted artist, Alzbeta Jaresova, Griffin Art Prize winner 2012, as well as Luke George and Elizabeth Rose, GAP 2013 winners, are all members of the panel.
