About this Event
In this in-person, moderated discussion, facilitated by Jazmyn Scott (Arte Noir), NaKeesa Frazier-Jennings (Nakeesa Marie Enterprises), and George Jennings (former owner of George Jennings Art) will discuss their journey in the local Seattle art community and how they were able to build a following for George’s artwork and the various ways that they monetized it. George will begin the presentation by sharing his Black family art legacy that includes the story of how he became interested in 2D art as well as his journey to becoming a visual artist himself. NaKeesa will share how they found various ways to monetize George’s work.
Attendees will be encouraged to take notes and make a list of 3 actionable steps they can take toward monetizing their own 2D art practice.
Discussion will last for approximately one hour and there will be one hour available for Q&A and discussion.
This presentation would be ideal for 2D artists who are early in their career and would like ideas about how to monetize their work. Also for more seasoned artists who would like to hear about this Black family’s story and how they navigated and continue to navigate the Greater Seattle art community.
