WHO KNOWS ART provides career development services for artists and helps galleries & arts organizations function more effectively.
If you are an artist, our job is to help you get to the next level in your art career and that's different for each individual.
What do you need? Recommendations for galleries, venues, publications and competitions to gain more exposure?
A website and/or portfolio critique?
Help with pricing?
Coaching on how and where to network more effectively?
Recommendations re grants and artist residencies?
The list goes on.
If you own or manage a gallery, our experience in gallery management (more than a decade) will facilitate a comprehensive dialogue. We will review operational procedures, critical working documents (including contracts), assess marketing efforts, and define achievable goals for increasing sales. Need a guest curator for an exhibition or a project manager for a juried competition? Maybe some help developing (or updating) your operating procedures? Whatever it is, let's talk about it!
If you represent an arts organization, our background includes special project administration and we are available to help you with a Call for Artists, hiring a new Executive Director, establishing membership guidelines, etc. Perhaps you'd like to sponsor a business workshop for artists. Or maybe you're looking for a juror.
WHO KNOWS ART is also available for special projects. Let us hear from you!
If we can't help, we will try to refer you to someone who can.
