Andrea Zieher, of ZieherSmith in New York, has been featured in New York Magazine’s annual “Influentials” issue, named among the “Power Couples in the Art World” by ArtInfo. She will be hosting a month of film screenings, workshops and portfolio reviews in Nashville for the month of August.
Opening Reception of Short Films
Thursday, Aug 7, 6 – 7 p.m.
We invite you to attend a curated screening of short films to introduce this month of workshops and portfolio reviews.
Elevator Speech Workshop
Tuesday, Aug 12, 6 – 8 p.m.
Not just for the visual artist, successful creative professionals in all fields benefit from having an elevator speech handy. The “elevator speech” is about delivering an effective spur-of-the-moment summary in the time span of an elevator ride – 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Be prepared to convey evocative ideas about your work (without images) when you meet a curator, collector or critic at a social gathering or otherwise. This is different from a formal artist’s statement.
We encourage visual artists, curators, playwrights, journalists, filmmakers, and other art professionals to attend.
Thursday, Aug 14, 6 – 8 p.m.
Websites have become an extremely important tool for artists, whether or not they have gallery representation. Get perspective on how to best represent yourself as an artist to your target audience (dealers, curators, collectors or all of the above) and broaden your exposure in the art world. The images of artwork are not the only thing that speaks to what kind of artist you are. The look and organization of the site conveys an unspoken message in itself and can affect your success. This workshop will also benefit those who have yet to build a website.
Individual Portfolio Review for the Visual Artist
Monday, Aug 18, 6 – 8 p.m.
Wednesday, Aug 20, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
$50, 25-minute appointments
Each appointment will be a candid and constructive portfolio review with dealer Andrea Zieher. We ask that you bring a portfolio, either digital or physical. If digital, bring images of your work on a USB drive or laptop. You may also choose to have a website review. Critique can focus both on the work and the artist’s presentation.
