    Behind the Gallery Doors: A Unique Perspective by Denice as a owner of Wildfire Art Gallery

    In today's episode, we talk with Denice Erway, owner of @Wildfire Gallery on the Paseo in Oklahoma City. Denice is a passionate supporter of the arts and the Paseo Arts District, and she even currently serves as the Merchant Committee Chairperson for the Paseo Arts District.
    There are many fantastic galleries of all sizes that can be an asset to your career and growth, but unfortunately, there are also galleries that don't have it together, aren't a good fit, or worst case scenario, behave unprofessionally or unethically. Today we will get Denice's perspective on working with a gallery.
    We'll ask her for a little sneak peek behind the scenes to get the perspective of a gallery owner and things to look forward to make sure you are finding the right gallery to work with so that you make sure you're building a great partnership because great partnerships with galleries really can be a great asset to your career.

    Art Business and Burnout with Anna Przy

    Art Business and Burnout with Anna Przy

    In today's Episode we talk with Anna Przybylski who coined the phrase, "it's called manifesting look it up." Anna has such a unique and fun way of encouraging the world, and it's clear by her followers and the response that her message is something we all need.
    Originally we wanted to talk to Anna about "manifesting" creativity, but this conversation naturally took another direction. We discuss a lot, from how she got started, to self-kindness, and burnout. While burnout isn't a fun topic it is oh so important. As art business owners, trying to run a business and wear many hats, the work can get exhausting and overwhelming. We think this is a timely episode, especially as we continue to hear that artists are in a very busy season and struggling to keep up. We hope you enjoy today's episode with Anna.
