0
602

When you’re starting out on the journey to becoming a fine artist it’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day activities without knowing how to create a system for success. Many artists focus on creating the content but don’t have time or the opportunity to learn the basics of marketing, personal branding, pricing, exhibiting, etc. Moreover, some just want the opportunity to learn from other artists about what their best practices are.

On November 25th at 7pm, LAB B will be hosting another Art & Business conversation, this time with Harjot Ghuman and Russna Kaur about their experiences and tips on how to build a career as a painter. Harjot Ghuman is the founder and creative director of The Glass Museum, a creative collective that works to create, promote and proliferate what it believes to be considered as honest art.

Harjot has helped develop emerging artists Babbuthepainter and INKquisitive. Russna Kaur is an emerging artist who has shown at internationally recognized juried exhibitions such as Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, CONTACT Photography Festival, The Artist Project and SURTEX in New York City.

The room will feature the work of Russna Kaur and snacks will be provided. Spots are limited, RSVP here.
