THRIVE TALKS is a speakers series that invites successful female artists and women in the arts to share their journeys, successes and advice with other women. Each THRIVE TALK is held in an intimate setting that allows for a unique opportunity to get to know the speaker.
Join us on Tuesday, February 28th from 7pm until 8:30pm to meet meet Executive Director & Curator of The Reach, Laura Schneider. Her talk will be about public galleries and art festivals! Sharing from both an administrative and a curatorial point of view, Laura will share information about the motivations and practicalities that artists can anticipate when participating in exhibitions and programs in these environments. The perfect talk for artists who want to show their work in public galleries and art festivals!
After the talk there will be time to ask questions and mingle until 9pm.
