Marketing art online

A workshop for artists to learn how to market their art online will be held early next month. Facilitated by artist Jo Tito the workshop is supported by the Gisborne District Council’s Creative Communities Scheme.

A full time artist for the past 14 years, Tito wants to share what she has learned with others.

“The online environment is changing all the time,” she says.

“There are untapped markets out there and I want to show artists how to find their audience for their art.

“Over the years I’ve heard from many artists who just never follow through with pursuing their art for a living. They haven’t received funding, or their work is not accepted in galleries or exhibitions or they just don’t know how.

“So they give up.

“I want to show artists a pathway where they can pursue their art for a living. It’s definitely possible.”

The workshop will be held at the HB Williams Memorial Library’s Mahutonga room on Wednesday, May 8, and Friday, May 10 from 9.30am-4pm. For more information call Jo Tito at 027 207 4871.
