Art & Money Panel Discussion

Join us Tuesday, November 10 at 7pm for the first of the fall lecture series, “Art & Money”—a platform for artists, academics and art dealers to discuss the business of art.

Panelists include:

  • Jim Zimpel, MSU Assistant Professor of sculpture who will talk about art education with a focus on income, insurance and advice for artists entering the “real world.”
  • Chaucer Silverson, owner of Artchaucer Art Gallery explains art from an auctioneer and sales perspective as well as art in the non-profit sector.
  • Amber Jean, sculptor, will speak on commissioning and pricing art, marketing personal work and finding sales outlets.
  • Dalton Brink, owner of Cottonwood Club and pioneer of the underground art scene in Bozeman, talks about approaching art and money in a non-traditional setting including Bring Your Own Art (BYOA).
  • Amy Kirkland, owner of Altitude Gallery explains the commission structure between artists and galleries, marketing as a business owner and maintaining relationships with artists and art lovers.

Gallatin Art Crossing’s mission is to promote and place public art, enhancing the cultural landscape in downtown Bozeman. Currently, there are 70 pieces on display from the Emerson Cultural Center to the Bozeman Public Library. Each year, pieces are rotated with the goal of purchasing at least one piece for the permanent collection.

The lecture series is presented by the Gallatin Art Crossing and hosted by the Bozeman Public Library. For more information contact Tate Chamberlin at or Paula Beswick at
