ABI Lecture Series in New York State

The Arts Services Initiative of Western New York is hosting three evening lectures on art business topics this April.

Arts Services Initiative

Artists in Western New York state are invited to attend a free evening presentation by Carolyn Edlund, Executive Director of The Arts Business Institute. Two hour-long talks will be presented during the program, including:

Selling Art Online
Online sales of artwork are growing exponentially. Who buys art or handmade goods online? What markets can you reach? There are hundreds of places to sell what you make on the internet. This talk presents different business models, ways to leverage your art, and how to build a regular stream of income. Opportunities to sell are now global. Don’t miss this up-to-date look at your options and how you can take advantage of online sales. Q&A encouraged.
Build an Effective Art Website
Without your own art website, you are practically invisible to buyers. This presentation addresses essentials that your website needs in order to make impact, appeal to prospective collectors, and show your work to its best advantage. Why do people buy? How can you drive traffic to your site?  Want to close sales and make repeat sales? Don’t miss this important information on creating a dynamic website that helps you sell your art. Q&A encouraged.
