Panel and Workshop: Monday, October 27 from 6:30pm to 8pm
WPA invites you to join us at the Capitol Skyline Hotel for a candid discussion on arts journalism and getting press coverage for your work with with Phillip Kennicott, Michael McCarthy, and Robert Bettmann.
Bring questions about how to get coverage for your artwork and how to secure freelance writing opportunities, and join the conversation on the future of arts journalism and the role journalism has played in the creation of an art movement.
In addition, WPA will be offering a companion workshop presented by Rob Bettmann entitled, Professional Practices: Creating an Artist Statement exclusively for WPA members on Saturday, November 8 from 1-3pm at the Capitol Skyline Hotel.
In this two-hour, hands-on workshop, members will consider examples of artist statements by well-known artists as a way to develop and apply guidelines for the creation and editing of their own, personal artist statements.
Participating members can expect to leave with a clearer understanding of how to pursue future artist statements more effectively.
Workshop space for Professional Practices: Creating an Artist Statement is limited and open to WPA Members only. If you are a current WPA member and would like to attend the workshop, please contact Jeremy Flick, Membership Director at [email protected]
