Writing Services for Artists
Coming up with a statement about your work is one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to do as an artist. Putting into words the complex thoughts, feelings, and reasons that go into creating artwork is a nightmare for many. The next worst thing can be trying to create a press release that accurately captures the essence of the exhibition or new work that you would like the public to see, or the press to be aware of. And managing the production of printed matter promoting your work, while also trying to actually make your work, is a challenge that you might prefer not to deal with, as it is a distraction to your ability to create.
For all this you need an objective eye who can condense your complex thoughts into short yet sophisticated soundbites for the press to catch on to, and who can create convincing and sophisticated marketing materials that explain your work and make it accessible to the public and your clientele.
I specialize in developing the following:
- Artist statements
- Press releases
- Communications (brochures, texts, publication essays)
- Portfolio production (artwork selection and documentation)
- Website management and set-up
- Grant Writing
- and Professional consulting for today’s entrepreneurial artist.
For fees for any or all of these services (as a package), please email me directly at olgastefanconsulting(at)yahoo(dot)com
