And while at Surtex, the nation's leading licensed art and design expo, be sure to stop by the Montage Licensing booth #464 to meet Kimberly Montgomery, Montage's owner, operator and a licensed artist herself – with a 25-year track record. Kimberly started Montage Licensing to fill a niche she felt was missing from the industry – a licensing firm for artists, by an artist that blends in-depth licensing experience with fine art know-how.
Fast forward just over a year, and Kimberly and Montage are a hot commodity. Montage currently represents more than a dozen artists and has successfully negotiated contracts with dozens of greeting card, paper product, gift and decorative item manufacturers on behalf of these artists.
As a longtime licensed artist herself, Kimberly has the experience to recognize top-notch art that’s ready for the commercial market, and the business savvy to negotiate profitable agreements between manufacturers and the artists she represents.
Kimberly also offers consulting services at an affordable hourly rate to act as a "guide on the side" for artists who are new to the licensing industry. Under Montage's consulting program, artists receive portfolio reviews, constructive critiques, guidance on their work and common-sense advice about navigating the art licensing business.
So stop by and say "hi" to Kimberly while at Surtex. It will be a positive – and profitable – connection! And check out what the excitement's all about by visiting montagelicensing.com.
