Baby Steps

It's the perennial question of the young artist: How do I get my work shown on walls that I do not already own? One option is to bring your paintings directly into a gallery. If they're excellent, do that. But as excellence in art is usually established by one's peers and a few well-regarded experts, attending Hang Me: The Artist Workshop might be the better bet. Learn tips like how to make a good portfolio and Web site and the proper ways to approach galleries and cafes. The panel includes David DeRosa, a local "pop impressionist" who has employed such guerilla tactics as setting up solo in front of a Tulsa mall, and Thérèse F. Martin, executive director of ArtSpan, a local art nonprofit.
