Anna Ogier-Bloomer believes that the studio visit is the single most important professional practice for an artist. It is the way in which they share their work individually with curators, critics, art dealers, collectors, and more. But how do you get a studio visit? In this session you will discuss together the ways in which you can and should reach out to these audiences. Every detail of this matters: how you reach out, when, and why. I’ll share with you best practices on how to get them and how to conduct a studio visit once you have it scheduled. You can work together to craft introductory emails and messages to curators and dealers on your radar and talk about all the expectations from the moment they confirm, to when they set foot in your studio, to after they’re gone. This session will empower to reach out to the critical eyes you want seeing your work and to get the exposure you need to move your career forward.
BEFORE A SESSION
In preparation for an Expert session with Anna Ogier-Bloomer, please email her a bulleted list of any questions you have and anything else she should know in advance of your meeting. She also would like to see your work before we speak, so please also email her a link to your website, online portfolio, social media handle, or, if you don’t yet have any work posted online, then a link to a Google Drive folder of images or files she can access. Seeing the work is an important part of your conversation.
For sessions about any of the following: applying to opportunities, building an audience, or conducting studio visits, please also send her any organizations, venues, or individuals you’re interested in connecting with. If you wish to have a session focused on one single application, please let me know what the opportunity and the organization are in advance of your meeting.
