Getting Gallery Ready

Join the VAA’s online ‘Getting Gallery Ready’ masterclass, which is a deep dive into getting ready to be represented by art galleries. All attendees will receive a ‘Getting Gallery Ready Guide’ which includes key tips and advice.  This is suitable for early-career artists looking to find gallery representation.  Taking artists through the key steps, from:

  1. Preparing your artwork portfolio for review
  2. Presenting yourself (online & offline)
  3. Approaching the right galleries for you, in the right way
  4. Legal & financial considerations

All followed by a live Q&A session with our panellists. We are fortunate enough to be joined by professionals with an outstanding wealth of knowledge in this specific topic.
