Dixie State University and the Center for Education, Business and the Arts (CEBA) present the sixth annual Business of Art Seminar on Friday and Saturday, November 7-8 at Kanab Middle School.

Created in 2009, the annual seminar¹s purpose is to assist artists and aspiring artists from Utah, northern Arizona and southern Nevada in enhancing their business skills.

This year¹s seminar will feature a pair of stellar keynote addresses delivered by award-winning journalist Brian Passey and renowned bronze sculptor Annette Everett.

Passey currently serves as the arts and entertainment writer for The Spectrum and St. George Magazine. Best known for his weekly travel and outdoors columns, Passey takes his readers to a myriad of locales with stories and vivid photography. Passey will discuss how social media has changed the face of marketing for artists and galleries in his Friday keynote presentation entitled “Instagram: The Visual Social Network.”

Everett will deliver the Saturday keynote, entitled “From Beginning to End: Creating and Living with Art That You Love,” which will focus on the entire process of creating art, from inspiration to presentation and everything in between. Everett, who founded BRUSHWORKS Fine Art Studio & Gallery in 1997, works in clay, both oil based and water based, to create figurative bronze and fired clay pieces. Most of her work is figurative and representational with an emphasis on spiritual themes.

The Business of Art Seminar concept was created by CEBA. This seminar for visual artists in all disciplines will provide an exciting schedule of classes, presented by knowledgeable professionals from Salt Lake City, Ogden, Cedar City, St. George and Kanab.
