Bow Skills Peer Crit: pricing your artwork with Art & People
Wednesday 22nd February 2023 , 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Art advisor, gallerist, and founder of Art & People Claudia Kennaugh is back again, leading one of two informal peer crits demystifying the topic of pricing your artwork and giving artists the opportunity to present their work and get practical, personalised pricing advice and feedback.
The other pricing your artwork peer crit will be held at our Lakeside Centre site in Thamesmead from 6-8pm, Wednesday 25 January – find out more here.
For many artists, pricing your artwork can be a real stumbling block – but it needn’t be! Art & People want to help you understand your worth and figure out how to price your work confidently and consistently.
In the peer crit, Claudia will kick things off by sharing some fundamental pointers to help artists critically interrogate their current pricing frameworks, encouraging them to consider what does it cost them? What stage are they 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 their 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 3 examples of their work to the peer crit that they can speak to, either physically or digitally.
Concession rate applies to students, over 65s, under 18s, Bow Arts artists, National Art Pass members, and key workers
- Opportunity for 8 artists to present their practice, join the conversation and receive personalised feedback
