Important gallery trade show such as AIPAID, Photo LA and Photo Miami will be discussed from the perspective of helping artists determine which dealers will be most appropriate for their work.

Effective self-promotion materials will be shared with participants, as well as insights into conducting research toward compiling an effective mailing list. Professional practices necessary to successfully present your work will be discussed, as well as “talking points” when given the opportunity to sign with a gallery for representation.
