Who’s exhibiting and opportunities for artists


WHAT: Karen Atkinson, founder of GYSTInk, or Getting Your Sh*t Together will give a demonstration on just what you need to keep track of as an artist who wants a professional career. She developed software to do just that, and will use that as a template to go over professional career strategies as well as tracking your art practice. She will cover artist statements, CV’s, time management, venues for artists, business issues, tracking your work, money, insurance, galleries, alternative exhibition sites, and much more. Bring your questions, desires and tenacity for a fun and informative workshop that will leave you thinking. The webinar is free but pre-registration is required.


What is an ArtUp?

ArtUps are free professional development events presented by the Iowa Arts Council for Iowa’s artists, arts organizations and communities. ArtUps provide online and in-person learning and networking opportunities to enhance the quality and capacity of the arts field in Iowa.
