with host artist Miriam Schulman
In this episode, I talk to Charlotte Troisgros who is Head of America for Carre d’Artistes. Charlotte selects artists for the gallery with the artistic team in France, hires and trains the gallery team and ensures the brand image is respected and customers have a great experience.
Carre d’Artistes wants to democratize contemporary art by making original and one of a kind paintings accessible to all and have an unusual pricing system that allows people to buy an original painting starting at $150.
In this podcast, you will discover…

- (06:05) How the art is displayed
- (07:01) What it means when they say they rotate the artists

- (09:04) Why the organisation was created and what makes it different
- (11:02) The most popular size they sell
- (11:51) How 4 times a year an artist will come to the gallery and paint live
- (13:36) How their artists are a mix of French, international and local artists
- (14:05) Why their prices are the way they are
- (15:27) How they market the galleries
- (16:33) Why they invest in location
Charlotte has been working as head of America for Carré d’artistes for three years. There are two galleries in NYC, one gallery in Philadelphia, one in Sedona and two in Mexico (Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende). I am also in charge of opening more galleries. The work consists of selecting the artists for the gallery (with the artistic team in France), hiring and training the teams, making sure that the brand image is respected and ensuring a great Customer experience in each gallery. The overall concept is to democratize contemporary art by making original and one-of-a-kind paintings accessible to everyone.

Find the confidence to finally create paintings of your pets that you can be proud of (even if you haven't picked up a paintbrush since college)...
🎨There’s a reason that students are so busy taking commissions, even though they don’t have a ton of experience yet, and commissions are not even the goal of the program!
People. Love. Pets.
💜 It’s a special kind of love that only a true animal lover can understand.
.....Your pets are like your children.
.....You think about them throughout the day.
.....You wonder what they’re doing when you’re not around.
.....You find yourself getting funny looks from non-pet-people when you talk about your pet.
🐕 So why not take some time to learn to paint pets?
👀 Hope to "see" you on the inside.
💕 With love and gratitude 💕
P.S. If you’re wondering whether my students were already professional artists when they started with me, they weren’t!
They started in the same place you are now.
And their first attempts did NOT look like the paintings they now do.
I believe that you can do this too!
And I’ll be there holding your hand every step of the way.
🎁 Imagine this December you’ll be giving pet paintings as gifts to your friends and family too.
I can’t wait to see what you paint!
