Join us at the National SPE conference in Philly for a candid and informative conversation about how we as artist sustain ourselves financially and fund our fine art practice.

2018 SPE Annual Conference
Saturday, March 03 - 9:00AM to 10:45AM
Grand Ballroom Salon G

One of the most important elements of being an artist is also one of the least discussed: how do we sustain ourselves financially and fund our fine art practice? Pulling from diverse perspectives, the four practicing artists on this panel will discuss the various ways they support themselves financially. Panelists will address how they identified income sources that aligned with their fine art work or skill set and will also talk about using jobs and assignments as a springboard for personal work. Additionally, they will address specific details including lecture fees, gallery commissions, day rates, licensing fees, and much, much more.
