Jonathan Keeton

2019 Accelerator Fellow

We are more divorced from the natural world than at any time in our species’ history. Through his paintings of the wilderness, and of cities and small towns just before dawn, Jonathan Keeton inspires in us a sense of awe at the mystery of being alive on this planet.

Business Objective

Triple annual revenue from fine-art sales by 2024. Develop a body of work that combines realism with abstraction towards the edges, and use this work to increase presence in the market over the next three years.

Action Plan
  • By the end of 2019, create at least three new paintings that embody realism with abstract edges.
  • Spend one day per week on marketing, sales, website, and inventory.
  • Prepare and send blurb portfolio book to selected galleries by November 2019.
  • Design mailing for art consultants and finalize list of targets by July 2019.
  • Exhibit at the four best art festivals within an 800-mile radius of studio.
Sales Strategy

Gain additional gallery representation, exhibit at top regional art festivals and nationally known art fairs, and expand collector base by soliciting commission work.
