Kendra Bruno  - Paper Wads, Life Rafts, and Portfolios
​See the image to the left? Does it look familiar? Are you tired of that? Stop spending the valuable time you need to create by stressing over forms, paperwork, and what to write. Together, let’s change the picture! Is your goal to build your artist resume and portfolio? Are you trying to understand how to enter shows, propose workshops, and gain the exposure you need to encourage future sales? Do you know how to play to your strengths? Still puzzled by the jury and selection process? Then this is the seminar for you. A good portfolio should tell your story. It is a representation of your potential as an artist. When you use your portfolio or any part of it to promote yourself, you want to swim, not sink, in the huge pool of artists who are also competing for everything. Poor communication and how you represent yourself is like a hole in your life raft, and if you don’t fix that hole, you are going to get wet! Understand how to navigate your artistic life raft through rough water. Take home materials that will continue to keep you afloat long after the Gathering has ended. Participate in an open discussion with other seminar attendees, and come prepared to spend three hours learning how to stop wadding up paper…and start making it work for you!
