Titles work cooperatively with art, often directing the audience’s gaze more than the work’s composition and color. Art consultants Alfonso Cosio and Monique Delaunay will discuss why titles are integral to convey an artwork’s message or mood, what some common titles suggest, and how titles will assist artists to productively engage with their audience and collectors. Cosio and Delaunay will also work with artists participating in the workshop to effectively title art while avoiding cliched or over-used phrases, creating intriguing titles that will instigate interest in the artist’s work.

Cosio Delaunay has assisted artists by giving them the strategies and support to market and sell their work, and successfully promote themselves for gallery representation.
