Next Podcast: Monday, Sept. 9 at 5-5:30 pm ET (sponsored podcast)
Part III of a series to understand the operations of creating a new art show.
Artists and Charities Hand in Hand will host its inaugural event on November 2 and 3, 2019, at the Palm Beach Convention Center in W. Palm Beach, Florida.
- One of the biggest challenges of promoting a new event is finding exhibitors who will take a chance that it will be successful and lead on to year two. Two artists who will be participating will be on this podcast:
Amy Reshefsky, from Florida and Quebec, who works in multiple media who has worked with the show organizer, Ingrid Robinson, at several other events and is well known in the Palm Beach vicinity.
H. Allen Benowitz, a self-educated photographer from North Carolina. Invited by the Sheik to photo journal an international festival in Morocco. His work has appeared in many Florida publications and he participated in Art Basel and many Florida art festivals.
- Then you have to make the event's name known in the community and get publicity. Rickie Leiter, of the RickieReport.com, a blogger and podcaster on the art scene who reports to the South Florida Community of Artists and Patrons will tell about her role in connecting with the art patrons.
- Lastly, you need to connect directly with established art institutions to show your credibility. Jeanne Martin of the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, will share why her historic art center is joining in as a charity partner for this new event.
This will be a good nuts and bolts show that should be helpful to any artists who are considering applying to the show. It will also be helpful to any show organizers to learn some new tips.
