Paint Your Heart Out – Marketing Panel Discussion & Social

October 19, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Marketing Panel Discussion & Social

Tuesday, October 19, 2021
5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Location: Ellen Bibb’s home in Sylvan Park: 4104 Westlawn Dr., Nashville, TN 37209

Price per ticket: $50  (Two drink tickets included in cost)

Panel description: Join us for a panel discussion on art and art marketing. With a combined experience of more than 60 years, our panelists include artists as well as marketing, public relations, and design professionals. Join us to discuss the benefits and challenges of marketing the arts!

NEW EVENT information: 

Please join us for a fun night to talk about the joy and the challenges of creating and marketing your art work.

We have decided to use the book “Real Artists Don’t Starve” by local bestselling author, Jeff Goins, to frame our panel discussion on Artists and Marketing. The book’s subtitle is “Timeless Strategies for Thriving in the New Creative Age” — and we think the way the book is structured into three parts will pair nicely with the experience of our three panelists. Ellen Bibb will lead the discussion around Part I: Mindset; Jess Peoples will lead Part II: Market; and Suzannah Green will lead Part III: Money.

Here is a link to the book if you would like to read it before the event, but that is NOT a requirement!

Included in the ticket cost is time to socialize with your fellow Chestnuts and enjoy two drink tickets! Join us!!

Panelists: Ellen Parker Bibb, Suzannah Green, Jess Peoples

We hope you will enjoy and find value in this group discussion, as we three (Ellen, Jess, Suzannah) have. We look forward to an interactive discussion, and want to provide you with valuable takeaways by sharing our experiences and learning from all of you.
