Artists invited to business of art workshop in Granby on Feb. 24

Are you represented by a gallery? Do you have an artist statement? Are you selling your art at a fair price?

Attend a three-hour workshop and leave with a clear sense of direction about how to best promote and sell your work. Art Mind/Business Mind is hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration and Grand County Economic Development. Participants will engage in a dialog about what it takes to be an artist and an entrepreneur: how to balance a passion for creativity with a business strategy that results in sales and recognition.

David D’Agostino Leavitt is the SBA Regional Communications Director in Denver and also works as a multi-media artist. His paintings, performances and installations have been exhibited at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, MCA Denver, Townhouse Gallery (Cairo, Egypt), Contemporary Art Centre (Plovdiv), Krause Gallery (Atlanta), Art Aqua (Miami), Poem 88 (Atlanta), Redline (Denver), and the Santa Fe Art Institute, among other venues.

The workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 24, from, 1-4 p.m. at the Granby Library Meeting Room. The workshop will cover:

• How to describe and present your art so it captures the interest of gallery owners and/or museum curators.

• How to best manage your art practice with the demands of daily living.

• How to effectively market your work using traditional and social media communications tools.
