The Business of Art Entrepreneurship Panel

Tuesday, October 5, 2021, at 6:30 pm

Featuring: Barron Ryan, Taylor Painter-Wolfe, and Sam Krall

Most artists don’t consider themselves entrepreneurs—but if you want to make a living off of your art, you are going to be running a business. Even the most highly talented and trained artists rarely have entrepreneurial or business experience. Join our panel discussion with art entrepreneurs and experts to help you learn the most important aspects of being an art entrepreneur.

Panelists will be discussing how to make a living and manage a career as an artist including making money and planning to quit your day job, what you should (or shouldn’t) do for exposure, how to get the right help, and how to manage time, energy, opportunities and the administration of being an artist and business owner.


Barron Ryan – Classic Meets Cool Musician

Sam Krall – Arts, Culture and Entertainment Management at The University of Tulsa

Taylor Painter-Wolfe – Fiber Artist & Art Teacher

The Business of Art Entrepreneurship: Outsourcing 101 for Artists with Barron Ryan

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at 11:30 am

As artists, we may be able to do anything, but we can’t do everything. How do you decide when, for what, and with whom to outsource your work? We’ll explore what you need to consider when handing over your brand to someone else. You’ll walk away knowing how to get the best possible results at the lowest cost!
Led by Barron Ryan, pianist, composer, and doer of whatever he thinks is cool at the time. Named one of Smithsonian Magazine’s ‘Ten Innovators to Watch in 2021, Barron discovers and presents beauty in as many ways as he can find it.
