Art of Business / Business of Art – SJCC Workshop

The Business of Art/The Art of Business

Lecture by Gloria Danvers

This workshop is mainly geared toward artists and people wanting to sell their product. Gallery owners and associates, however, in addition to small business owners and people in other areas of sales and marketing would benefit from this fascinating lecture by Gloria Danvers as well. Get ready to become extremely motivated through self-awareness and understanding of the market.

Gloria is a hypnotherapist, motivational speaker, business owner, and artist. She has “been there done that” and is driven to pass her extensive knowledge and experience along to others. In her life, she has owned and managed several businesses and sold her art in galleries, museums, and on major art markets along the east coast of the US. As a compassionate hypnotherapist, Gloria makes it her mission to help people free themselves from self-limiting beliefs and empowers them to make fundamental changes to be able to move into a positive, enriching, and successful direction in life.

Gloria has taught this workshop for quite a few years and loves seeing the aha-moment in faces of attendees. Each seminar is slightly different than the previous one, as she adds and revises things according to current trends. Through guidance toward a greater understanding of the Self, she brings advice on how to sell art, which sales venues and markets to approach, how to price work, and how to find the perfect client. She will also impart valuable expertise on how to shape your own image and teach skills in marketing yourself.

Apart from showing how to reach a greater self-awareness, her most important message is that selling art comes down to the “intimate relationship between the artist and the buyer” … and common sense “business stuff.” Plenty of quality work, market research, and old-fashioned leg-work will eventually create a tipping point and your art business will take off. We highly encourage all to attend this exceptionally inspirational and life-changing workshop! Get ready to create your own world and start writing your own script.
