How Much?! Demystifying Pricing & Editioning 2D Work is an in-person panel hosted by OCAD University’s RBC Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers (CEAD) that helps emerging artists understand and develop their own strategies around setting a fair price for 2D artwork. The event will also briefly cover the process and history of editioning artwork from its printmaking roots. 

The panel is moderated by artist and Associate Professor, Derek Sullivan, and features artists Mekayla Dionne, Brian St. Denis, and Shaheer Zazai. Panelists will discuss topics ranging from important considerations to factor in, individual approaches, and strategies for communicating with clients. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of ways that 2D artwork can be sold and possible structures for pricing their artwork.
