Online Summit for Visual Artists: Free Entrepreneurial Education

Features 24+ Artists & Career Experts from Around the Globe

(January 1st, 2024, New York - London - Sydney) THE PROFESSIONAL ARTIST SUMMIT online conference is a five-day educational event taking place January 22 - 26, 2024. Registration is open now at The Professional Artist Summit assembles 24 of the world’s most accomplished entrepreneurial artists and art career experts to share their insights on what it takes to thrive as a visual artist in 2024. Each day of the week offers 4 or 5 different masterclasses, designed for artists who seek practical, current advice to help grow their careers. The masterclass sessions, 24 in total, are offered free of cost and will remain available to registrants for 24 hours after the initial launch each day.

The Professional Artist Summit takes place one hundred percent online. The global scope of the project includes speakers spanning the art capitals of the world, including San Francisco, New York, London, Madrid, Paris, Sydney, and Tokyo. All masterclasses are presented in English, with subtitles for non-native speakers. Past presenters range from rising stars like Australian painter Loribelle Spirovsky to established masters like Irish visual artist Colin Davidson. Past experts include curator and best-selling author of ART/WORK Heather Bhandari from New York, and Ryan Stanier, founder of The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi from London. Sessions cover a spectrum of relevant career strategies: finding gallery representation and art fairs, winning grants and artist residencies, Instagram strategies, how to write and speak about your art, and creating self-organized exhibitions.

The Professional Artist Summit organizer Miguel Mayher researched hundreds of business resources for artists and discovered that the majority of instruction is put forward by a single educator. He believes that no one expert has all the answers, and a variety of domain expertise creates effective benefits for learners. Mayher states, "When getting questions from artist friends I started to realize that not only did I not have all the answers - no one does. By bringing together dozens of successful artists and advisors, I started to see patterns emerge on what makes an artist journey thrive." His mission, in tangent with the Professional Artist Association, is to bring artists the best advice on how to make their career successful on their own terms.

The Professional Artist Summit will make all of their educational sessions free to watch every day of the conference. Attendees will have the option to upgrade to a Premium Pass or join the Professional Artist Association to keep access to the recordings after the conference. Artists are encouraged to register now to receive their free "ticket" to the conference. The Professional Artist Summit begins 01/15/2023.
