Highlights from the 2016 Creek Gallery Artist Conference:
Susan Blackman: Move Your Art Career Forward
Gallerist/Art Consultant Susan Blackman talks about determining price,
placement & promotion in the 21st Century art market.
Susan Blackman blends a passion for art with a results-oriented, bottom-line
business background and perspective. She earned an MBA in business manage-
ment and a specialty in marketing. As a result, she has been uniquely qualified
throughout her career to guide businesses and individuals through the process
of art acquisition, installation and management. Blackman is a seasoned veteran
in the business of art. After joining the field in 1986, she managed five art galleries
and later became a gallery owner before turning her focus to the business of art
consulting. And for all of these reasons, she is uniquely qualified to help artists
move their career forward.
