We are so happy to announce Mckenna Hallett of My Golden Words as ArtSmart 2023 guest speaker. Mckenna Hallett is over-the-top enthusiastic about finding homes for art and creating vibrant livelihoods for artists. She started her first hand-made business –with two employees – at the age of seven. After a long career selling art and collectibles, she began her own art business in 1992 after moving to Maui. She sold her hand-made art jewelry line to hundreds of shops including Neiman Marcus.

She has been teaching the principles behind her “E’s of Selling” system since 1987. She developed the system when she was Director of Sales and Marketing for high-end San Francisco art galleries. She has published articles on Alyson Stanfield’s Art Biz Blog, Carolyn Edlund’s Artsy Shark blog and the Arts Business Institute where she was also on the faculty. She has over 200,000 helpful words on her own site You
can also devour her podcasts there or on Apple podcasts: “Find Loving Homes for Your Art” has over 40 easy to listen to episodes based on her excellent publication, “The E’s of Selling Art System” – a guidebook, workbook, and flashcard set that is a must have for artists of any medium.

We are excited that Mckenna will be our guest speaker for the upcoming
