American Women Artist’s 2016 Symposium

I’m honored that Diane Swanson asked me to be a panelist at this year’s American Women Artists Symposium on Women in the Arts.

The event is free and open to the public, with an all-star list of speakers, including Erin Coe, Executive Director of The Hyde Collection, who is a constant source of inspiration. She’s an excellent speaker and a great choice as keynote. I’ll be speaking later on in the day, in a discussion highlighting recent changes in the art industry that allow artists to more effectively market their work.

Join us this Saturday, September 24, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Bennington Center for the Arts.

As part of American Women Artists’ mission, we are committed to bringing educational opportunities to our members and all artists that encourage and support growth both professionally and creatively. Our annual symposium is one such opportunity, and will be presented during our Annual Member Show and National Juried Exhibition, hosted this autumn at Vermont’s Bennington Center for the Arts. This years’ program will explore relevant topics from both an historical and contemporary perspective, while giving a glimpse of the future of women in art. AWA is honored to include such knowledgeable presenters, experts in their field. The symposium will conclude with a panel discussion highlighting the professional artists’ interaction with curators, media, gallery owners, collectors and each other.
