Bow Skills peer crit: pricing your artwork with Art & People

Wednesday 10th July 2024 , 6:00pm to 8:00pm


Join Claudia Kennaugh from Art & People as she demystifies how to price your artwork confidently and consistently, with the opportunity to present your work and get practical, personalised pricing advice and feedback. 

For many artists, pricing your artwork can be a real stumbling block – but it doesn’t have to be! In this session, Art & People want to help you understand your worth and figure out how to price your work confidently and consistently.  

Claudia will kick things off by sharing some fundamental pointers to help artists critically interrogate your current pricing frameworks, encouraging you to consider what it costs you? What stage are you at? What is the selling environment? And other important reflection points. 

We will then open up the individual peer crits, where each artist will get around 12 – 15 minutes to present your work and get personalised feedback from Claudia, as well as advice from wider group discussions with the other artists participating. 

Attendees are encouraged to bring along 2-3 examples of their work to the peer crit that they can speak to, either physically or digitally. 

What you will gain: 

  • Curatorial feedback on your individual artwork prices and general pricing methodology 
  • An actionable plan on how to go forward pricing your artwork 
  • An insight into how other artists practicing today are approaching this topic 
  • A new network of artists and creative professionals 

This event will take place in our courtyard room at Bow Arts Trust, 183 Bow Road, London, E3 2SJ.

More about Art & People and Claudia Kennaugh 

Art & People is a Bristol-based art advisory service offering guidance to artists and collectors. Founded in 2019 by Claudia Kennaugh in response to 15 years working in the arts as a musician and performing artist, then gallery partner and art advisor. Claudia brings her dual experience to support artists’ professional development with 121 sessions, talks, tutorials and workshops that foster thriving artist communities. Art & People runs development programming for studio groups and arts organisations including Artes Mundi, Bow Arts Trust, Jackson’s Art Supplies, Kindred Studios, Spike Island, Visual Artists Ireland and Wimbledon Art Studios. Claudia has been a judge on the Jackson’s Painting Prize, a speaker at Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair and is an artist mentor on the BBC One TV programme Make it at Market Series II. 

Over her years co-running the Hollywood Road Gallery, London, Claudia sourced works from the UK, Europe & South America to curate annual exhibitions and fairs. She carefully nurtured the careers of their represented artists and offered bespoke services to the gallery collectors, helping them to buy, frame and hang art in their homes. Today Art & People hosts an annual charity exhibition, Precious Postcards. This open call collection is an opportunity for largely unrepresented artists to sell their works to collectors and galleries, whilst raising funds for the FoodCycle charity.
