RED BANK, NJ - On Sunday, September 22, at 5 PM artist Eileen Kennedy will share wisdom gained from more than 30 years of exhibiting her work in galleries, museums, and alternative spaces. In addition to discussing where to find venues to show your work Eileen will address how tell if you are ready for a solo show and when it makes more sense to do a two- or three-person show. The artist will also talk about how to decide if a space is right for you and your work, what advance planning you should do, and what are some of the costs you will incur. Finally, she will share the list of spaces where she has exhibited her work in the region. Eileen’s talk will be given at the Art Alliance, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ 07707.
During the month of September be sure to stop by and see work by Val Dyshlov, exhibiting recent landscapes in the window, and work by Art Alliance members in the gallery.
