COMMUNITY GATHERINGS

  • Members of seasonal learning programs have a community membership as well and are invited to everything you see here. These include annual alumni members, and those currently enrolled in Grow Your List, Create Opportunities, Optimize Your Online Marketing, and Magnetic You.
  • Everyone has access to Strategy Sessions, Get It Done Days, and Studio Talks. Pick and choose the ones of most interest to you and that work with your schedule. The reason we offer so many is so that you have options. 😇
  • Office hours and The Salon are available to Accelerator members only.
  • If you sign up after an event here, don’t fret! You haven’t missed a thing because you’ll have access to similar the next month.
  • These gatherings are described at the bottom of the page with the team members who lead them. 
  • Dates, times, and topics are subject to change so I can respond to member needs as well as world and art market events.

All times listed are Eastern Time, U.S. (New York) and sessions are 30-60 minutes.

About Gatherings + Our Team

Kristen O'Neill

STRATEGY SESSIONS are for all members.

During these calls, artist mentor Kristen O’Neill addresses your questions about course content and business strategies. Breakout rooms center on common community themes as a time for members to connect.

Kristen is a working artist, former museum staff member, and busy mom. After being in my Inner Circle program for a year, I asked Kristen to join the team as an artist mentor and she’s been with us since 2017. She lives in Grants Pass, Oregon. @kristenoneillart 

Suzanne Gibbs

GET IT DONE DAYS are for all members.

Led by artist mentor Suzanne Gibbs, GIDDs are days we set aside to do work that we’ve been avoiding and want group energy to help motivate and hold us accountable. Suzanne helps you bypass procrastination and perfectionism and take actionable steps toward your goals.

Suzanne, who lives on the Oregon Coast, is a life-long artist and the self-published author of 3 books. She loves making art, cheering on others to be creative, and swimming in the lake with otters.  @suzannegibbsart

STUDIO TALKS are a time to discuss the hard work you do in the studio. While most of our other sessions are about business, Studio Talks are about making and are open to all members.

Suzanne and Kristen are currently tag-teaming our Studio Talks gatherings while we search for a new team member.

 

Alyson Stanfield

COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS are for all members.

Currently led by art business coach and consultant and founder of Art Biz Success Alyson Stanfield, Community Connections are a time to reflect on the theme of the month while you get to know other members. Alyson breaks you into small groups to discuss a related and relevant topic. 

Alyson is the founder of Art Biz Success programs, consulting, and community. She’s the host of The Art Biz podcast, and the author of I’d Rather Be in the Studio. She joins calls from her home in Golden, Colorado. @alysonstanfield
