These workshops offer students an introduction to the inner workings and dynamics of independent galleries in the Ottawa region. Guy Berube, curator and director of La Petite Mort Gallery, will bring his extensive experience and expertise to two separate tours of independent galleries in different Ottawa neighborhoods.
The workshops will address a variety of practical considerations faced by a gallery operator including questions such as how to contact and communicate with artists; buying and selling artworks; managing and maintaining clients; organizing, curating, renting and maintaining exhibition spaces; marketing and social media; creating and promoting a gallery identity and niche in the community and beyond.
Students will come away from these workshops with a better understanding of the challenges and logistics faced by the gallerist. At the same time Berube will introduce students to an increasingly diverse and dynamic local gallery scene.
