Art/Biz Talk

Thursday, September 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm • Organized By GUILDit
1014 E 19th St, Kansas City, Missouri 64108


Gloria Heifner has shown at Leedy Voulkos, MLB Boutique, and has been in several galleries plus craft shows. She also teaches classes from drawing to glass decoupage. This talented artist will present her biz followed by an inspiring Q&A.


Since 2013 Gloria has been a full-time artist, having spent the decade before working as a graphic designer and for Herzberg Diamonds. Shortly after being laid off, she suffered a stroke, realizing now is the time to create and show her art, because tomorrow wasn’t guaranteed. In 2017, she started her studio practice and offered classes. Let’s expand her business, yours, plus the arts and economy.

In-person networking following the event.
