It's not just a popular notion that many artists labor in obscurity for years. In fact, the training many artists receive does not include information about how to promote themselves and market their work successfully and profitably.

To address the problem, two professionals speak about "The Nitty Gritty of Marketing Yourself as an Artist" from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 23, at Park Art Center, 9 E. Park Blvd., Villa Park. Space is limited and registration is required by Wednesday, Sept. 20 through Eventbrite.com. A suggested donation of $5 may be made at the door.

Sean McMenemy, an animation artist who enjoys urban sketching, painting and photography, and is co-founder of Studios 630, will share insight on how to create a successful Etsy store. Also on the agenda is freelance writer Colette Freeman, who will discuss the value of a professionally written artist biography, including what it should and should not contain, and how it will be used on behalf of the artist.

For information, call (630) 501-1455 or visit parkartcenter.org.
