Show Your Art – Part 1 – A workshop

April 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PDT


Presented by Katie Brennan of tools4artists.com and Katie Brennan Art Consulting

How to find the right exhibition opportunities for your work

Showing your art can be daunting. With this workshop, you’ll learn the rules of the road to find the exhibition opportunities that are absolutely right for you — because some won’t be!

Learn about all the different kinds of art galleries out there, some common misunderstandings about how art galleries work, and the fork in the road that many artists face over the course of their careers that you too may be staring at.

Registration: $45 (CVA member discount applies) or Pay What You Can

COVID is the perfect time to re-think and re-evaluate how you approach how you show your art and learn to work smarter, not harder. 

From Katie:


This is the course I wish that every artist, client and student I’ve ever worked with could have taken. 

No one else is teaching this stuff this way.  

I mean, it’s taken me 15 years to figure it out and I have a Master’s degree in visual arts and worked in and showed my own work with most of the kinds of galleries I want to teach people about. 

Really, this is the BIGGEST misconception that artists have about galleries: that they are ALL THE SAME, when really they each work very differently. 

And that you can save yourself a whole lot of time and money and heartache if you know about that. 

Because, sadly, there are some kinds of art that will never show at certain kinds of galleries. But no one tells artists which is which… which can be very frustrating and disheartening! 

So, let me save you all the trouble and take this course, and I’ll teach you which kind of gallery your work is absolutely perfect for. 



Katie Brennan is an art consultant, artist, educator and creative entrepreneur who sees things a little differently. With a BFA and a MFA under her belt, Katie has years of experience of looking at the art world, art education and how to be an artist from all sides.

She offers enthusiastic and hopeful advice and tools for artists and organizations who are tired of trying to do things the right way, and are looking for a better way to work, and become the artists or the organizations they have always been meant to be.
