Online Summit for Visual Artists: Free Entrepreneurial Education

Features 37 Artists & Career Experts from Around the Globe


(November 6th, 2019, San Francisco, CA) THE FINE ARTIST SUMMIT online conference is a seven-day educational event taking place November 22 - 28, 2019. Registration is open now at The Fine Artist Summit assembles 37 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 the 21st century. Each day of the week offers 5 different masterclasses, designed for artists who seek practical, current advice to help grow their careers. The masterclass sessions, 36 in total, are offered free of cost and will remain available to registrants for 24 hours after the initial launch each day.

The Fine Artist Summit takes place one hundred percent online. This is the first time a global virtual summit launches specifically for visual artists. 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. Presenters range from rising stars like Australian painter Loribelle Spirovsky to established masters like Irish visual artist Colin Davidson. 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 Fine 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 Fine Artist Summit and, is to bring artists the best advice on how to make their career successful on their own terms.

The Fine 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 to keep access to the recordings after the conference. Artists are encouraged to register now to receive their free “ticket” to the conference. The Fine Artist Summit begins 11/22/2019.
