Geezer Gallery hosted ORA members at one of our many "professional development" gatherings!

This is what Laurie Fendel, our education director had to say:

Today's talk at Geezer Gallery was  exhilarating !  David Strough spoke. He is a sculpture and does all mediums. He also designs the gallery set up for all their new shows. He builds furniture and has many many talents.  We asked questions and he answered: giving lots of ideas, out of the box and reality suggestions. He was totally funny, and told some hilarious stories.  He often uses pseudo names for his work and then stands there while people view his work and he listens to their comments. One tid bit was to ask your patrons questions so you can find out what they like and what they're looking for.  He talked about creative marketing, selling yourself, how to frame, where to market and how to feature your art. We had lots of good laughs, we got lots of great positive advice and it was well worth the 2 hours of education. 

We will have more opportunities like this one to get together to learn from other experts in Art !

ORA member Leslie Elder said: 
The talk by David Strough at Geezer Gallery yesterday was incredible. It was so refreshing to be able to sit down with a knowledgeable artist and get his insights. And, let me tell you, this guy was very knowledgeable!  I wanted more! I probably could have listened to this guy all day!
