Create Demand for Your Art
Renowned speaker, Jennifer Schwartz, will discuss how to launch a body
of work through both traditional and non-traditional avenues. Schwartz is
the creator/director of Crusade for Art, a non-profit organization focused
on cultivating demand for fine art photography. She owned and operated
a fine art photography gallery in Atlanta for five years which showcased
the work of emerging photographers. She also created the online project,
The Ten, and is the co-creator of Flash Powder Projects.
In this lecture, which is intended for photographers only, Schwartz will
discuss how to create innovative programs that engage people with
their images in meaningful and memorable ways. The talk complements
her book, Crusade For Your Art: Best Practices for Fine Art
Photographers (published in March 2014), and is geared toward
photographers of all levels who want to explore creative ways to get
exposure and build collectors. By inspiring, mentoring, teaching and
funding, Schwartz’ Crusade for Art aims to empower photographers to
strategically and effectively cultivate audiences for their work.
Jennifer Schwartz regularly participates in portfolio reviews such as
PhotoNOLA, PhotoLucida, Atlanta Celebrates Photography, FotoFest,
Medium, Filter and others. She was invited as a curator to the Lishui
Photo Festival in Lishui, China in 2011 and travels around the country
giving talks, guest-lecturing at universities, leading workshops and
hosting photographic retreats with Flash Powder Projects. In the spring
of 2013, she traveled around the country in a 1977, Volkswagen bus,
engaging audiences about photography.
