The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands to host The Business of Art • Symposium with guest presenter NAGB Director, Amanda Coulson

Join the NGCI for a full day of presentations and workshops that explore how artists and creatives can build a business around their talent, from initially developing a presence in the art world through to learning to sell your work directly to the public or finding suitable representation.
