Speaking of Stand-Up and Audiences

Tonight I'm very pleased to be participating in Paul Klein's series of in-depth discussions on building your career as an artist. These talks not only often touch on the impact of the Internets on the art world, but also often take place with people around the world via the same channel. Tonight I'll be in my gallery, Paul will be in Chicago, and the attendees are reportedly logging in from around the globe. The series has included some of the most outspoken and best-positioned-to-know people out there, including artists, collectors, critics, consultants, tax experts, insurance experts, and the occasional gallerist (see the full list here).

The current season of talks is mostly complete, but Paul has offered a discounted rate for readers of this blog for tonight's session with yours truly (8:00 EST to about 8:45) and Janet Eklebarger, Art Accountant (8:45 +/- on). I've watched a few of the webinars Paul has taped and can attest that his past experience as dealer and insightful questions leads to a direct, intensive, meaty discussion.

Paul told me that how the audience interacts with the discussion varies (there's a chat function and sometimes he opens up the mikes), but I'll encourage anyone who joins to hold me to my word and be a critical and demanding audience. I promise to answer any and all questions as best I can. I also promise to keep the "Star Trek" jokes to an absolute minimum.

Thanks for having me Paul. It was great fun (and really interesting to watch the attendees via the internet while we chatted).

Congratulations on a great series!
