Today we’d like to introduce you to Suzanne Schultz.
Suzanne, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
In 2007 I was spending time with an artist in his studio in Lawrence, MA. He told me about his struggles and how hard it was to find places to exhibit. I was inspired by his story to start a business to help artists. Since then I have worked with over 100 artists.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The biggest struggle is finding galleries to accept new artists. I have created partnerships with the design, hospitality and retail communities as well as my own platforms to showcase the artists’ work while pursuing gallery opportunities.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Canvas Fine Arts – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
My business is marketing and PR. What sets me apart are my clients. They are visual artists and writers. I am best at making things happen. I create a lot of momentum for them. I work strictly with the luxury market and research demographics to help best place them and set them up for success. Success is measured differently from each opportunity. I try help my clients understand that and help them realize what they want from each opportunity provided.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Canvas Fine Arts recently opened a new location in New York City in the West Chelsea art district. This will provide new and exciting opportunities for my clients. In the last decade, CFA has placed artists in International collections as well as shows all over the world. I will be bringing my expertise of sharing business information with artists to Sotheby’s Art Institute in Manhattan in July. I hope to expand this class to their other campuses in London and San Francisco.
