Bantu Art Gallery has a wide-ranging knowledge of art to make decisions about the type of work they will exhibit. I have learnt how to build relationships with artists and art critics to keep up to date with trends and identify work that will attract visitors and buyers. We will plan a program of exhibitions and collaborate with designers to develop layouts to showcase there work. I know how to negotiate terms with artists and their agents, or owners of important works, and arrange for the collection, installation and insurance of the work. I also know how obtain sponsorship to cover part of the exhibition costs.
Event Marketing to attract visitors to exhibitions, I have the experience and skills to develop effective event marketing programs. I prepare exhibition catalogs, working with graphic designers, photographers and printers. To launch an exhibition, I invite art critics, journalists, donors and selected guests to a private viewing. I will promote exhibitions to the wider community through a gallery website, posters, invitations to people on the gallery mailing list and editorial coverage in the media.
