E-commerce has boomed in recent years and effectively challenged the stereotype of the “starving artist.” That’s even more true now than ever, in the era of socially-distanced shopping. If you’ve ever wanted to sell your art online, now is your chance!.
A panel of local, established artists — Dany Green! Sonia Jones! Jodi Kostelnik! Josue Martinez! and moderated by Torie Partridge! — will give you a behind-the-scenes look at how to start and run a digital shop. Learn what online platforms they use, what vendors they work with, how they manage logistics, and how to get your brand out there. If you’ve been making and creating in your spare time and been looking for a sign to make the jump — this is it!
