Friends! I’m so excited to announce that I am speaking at Surtex this year.
My session is called Art Business Boot Camp Review: One on One with Art Inc. author and artist, Lisa Congdon, and it’s being held Tuesday, May 19, 11:30- 1:00pm. If you are attending Surtex this year, you are welcome to attend my session and ask any questions you have about making a living as an artist.
Each year Clay and I attend Surtex and the Stationery Show, which happen simultaneously at the Javits Center in Manhattan. This year I am not exhibiting at either, but I will be walking both shows for inspiration and to meet people at companies we are interested in building working relationships with. Walking Surtex and/or the Stationery Show is a great way to get to know the licensing and stationery industries & to meet contacts. I highly recommend attending! Here is more about registering. To boot, a pass to Surtex gets you into Stationery Show and vice versa. You also have access to ICFF, which is a fantastic show of contemporary furniture. These shows happen every year, so if this year doesn’t work for you, there is always next year!
Here I am with my dear friend Claudia Pearson last year at her booth at the Stationery Show. Can’t wait to see all my friends at this year’s show!
Have a great Wednesday, friends! And hope to see you this coming week in New York!
