Artist Toolbox Workshop

May 10, 2020

Center for Maine Contemporary Art

Monday – Thursday, May 25 – 28 | 6:30 – 8pm
Zoom Workshop | $30 to participate
Led by Kim Bernard
Pre-registration required; limited to 10 participants

The Artist Toolbox Workshop is designed for artists who want to develop the skills necessary to successfully represent themselves and advance professionally in the current art sector. Creating a strong body of work is the most important part of being an artist, but how do you pay the bills, juggle time, money, studio and life?

This four-part workshop takes a deep dive into hi-priority topics such as image documentation, finding exhibiting venues, artist/gallery relationships, writing an artist statement, bio and resume, building a website, networking, getting exposure, social media, grant writing, finding residencies, time and money management, and sustaining an ongoing professional creative practice.

Kim Bernard received her BFA from Parsons School of Design in 1987, and her MFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2010. She mentors emerging artists individually, and teaches professional development workshops to artists nationally. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions across the U.S., including at the Portland Museum of Art, Currier Museum of Art, Fuller Craft Museum, Harvard University, The Art Complex Museum, and University of New Hampshire Museum of Art. Her work has been reviewed in The Boston Globe, ArtNews and Art New England. She is the recipient of a Piscataquis Region Artist Advancement Grant and grants from The Kindling Fund, New England Foundation for the Arts, and Maine Arts Commission. She was artist-in-residence at the Physics Department at Harvard University, and at the University of New England.

The Artist Toolbox is made possible by major support from the Roxanne Quimby Foundation.
