ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Christine Malek is an artist and owner/head curator of Gallery Boom in downtown Olympia. For the last year and a half Gallery Boom has featured over 200 local artists in their 5,000 sq. ft. building. Gallery Boom was voted the Best Art Gallery in the South Sound in the 2017 Best of the Northwest contest put on by the Olympian and the Thurston County Chamber of Commerce. Christine focuses on helping local artists learn the basics of retailing through experience. Pricing, merchandizing, product mix and experimentation are all key to retail success. When she can find the time between bookkeeping and shop keeping, Christine creates the stuffed creatures from recycled clothing that lead her into the life of a gallery owner. The 10 years of designing, creating and selling stuffed creatures in art shows, stores and galleries paired with the 8 years of manager experience in the Natural Foods Industry has informed Christine's passion for helping artists learn the skills to profitably share their art with the world.
