New to selling your work, or looking to take your sales to the next level? Join seasoned artists to learn how they turn a profit.

We’re continuing our fall professional development series! Join visual artist and Creative Connect mentor Melissa Falconer and others as they share the creative ways they sell their work locally and internationally through diverse methods including social media, art fairs, and more.

Doors open at 6:00 pm, discussion begins at 6:30 – arrive early to grab a bite, pick up resource materials, and save your seat!

Melissa Falconer is a self-taught visual artist who has been painting for four years. Her art is inspired by Black culture and Pop Culture and fosters a sense of self-love, identity and self-expression. Monday to Friday you’ll find her there passionately working on new artwork and building her fast growing art business.

Historically, People of Colour (POC) have been underrepresented in the media. This is true even within the art industry. Because of this, POC are always looking for ways to represent themselves and their culture. M.Falconer is a Black artist who has identified with this struggle and aims to fill the void for people like her. By creating pop art paintings based on Black culture, POC will now have a new source from which to express themselves and their Blackness. In essence, M.Falconer’s paintings are bold, colourful and powerful think pieces that speak to the culture.
