Program: Price It Right

How much should I charge for my artwork? Where do I sell my artwork? These and other questions will be addressed during an open panel discussion at the next DAFA meeting Monday, June 22.  Our guest panelists will be Anne Hines, Suzanne Morgan, Mark Thompson and Linda Shotwell. Each artist will present their approach to the pricing and selling artwork via public show, private settings, studio, festivals, social media and alternative venues. Join us for a lively and informative exchange of ideas and solutions for finding value and applying it to your artwork.
