11am: Breaking Through the Artist’s Wall: How to Create and Sell More Art While Spending Less Time Marketing   Sooner or later we all hit the artist’s wall. No matter what we do, we can’t seem to increase our art sales beyond a certain point. We end up caught in a never-ending tug of war between producing our art and marketing our art that ultimately limits our ability to our sell art.  Join Dave Geada, CMO of BoldBrush and FASO, as he shares a proven approach to breaking through the artist’s wall. Learn how to market in less time, while increasing art production and art sales.
