How to Choose Yourself as an Artist with Michael Foley (Webinar)
March 25, 2023
10:00 am - 11:30 am
In this webinar, you will learn and sharpen your skills to effectively get your work seen and discovered by your audience. Michael Foley will introduce you to less traditional and unorthodox approaches to present and sell your work.
We will design a social media plan for effective communication, variety, and stickiness. Michael will teach you how to apply to competitions and what competitions to apply for, and other opportunities that are worth your time, effort, and resources.
There are three types of artists out there: ones with a gallery, ones without a gallery, and ones with a gallery when they choose to have one. This webinar will help you determine which path is right for you.
Michael Foley opened his gallery in the fall of 2004 after fourteen years of working with notable photography galleries, including Fraenkel, Howard Greenberg, and Yancey Richardson. His personal art-making practice is equally inspired by collage, cut paper, and painting. In 2006, he brought artists within these disciplines to the list of exhibiting gallery artists.
Foley went on to co-found “The Exhibition Lab” in the fall of 2009. He is the founder of The Photo Community, which regularly offers workshops and critiques for photographers. He gives guidance to fine art photographers in his weekly newsletter, The Photographer’s Report on Substack. Foley continues his interest in educating by serving on the School of Visual Arts faculty and the International Center of Photography, where he teaches and lectures on issues in contemporary photography.
