We help you get organized, focused and grow your art career to the Next Level
Being a successful artist is more than making great art in the studio. It requires a level of business savviness, networking skills, a thriving mindset and technical ability like never before.
As artists, we want creative freedom (art-making), make a living (sell), be accepted (respect) and exposure opportunities (show). Yet, we don't know where to start, what to do or how to move our art forward.
We get it! As an artist/curator/gallerist and mindset expert team, we have worked with hundreds of artists over the years who face similar challenges in their art career. You are not alone and there is a solution ahead.
Meet the Art NXT Level Strategic Group! An online membership community for the working artist.
We are here to guide you along the way
"As a successful practicing artist, gallery owner, podcast host, entrepreneur, educator and curator of an international institution with vast experience in the art word, I believe that when one of us (artist) wins, we all win. I don’t believe in reinventing the wheel. Everything I know and learn each day in the field, I pour it back at the membership site because I believe that sharing information is the key to a satisfying career. Let me help you get where you want to be."
"As an emotional wellness and mindset expert (former gallerist), I believe in a wholeness approach to the art career. Taking care of the studio practice, business management and emotional wellness are the pillars to a long and enriching art career. We invite you to join us and experience the business and wellness support we provide to our community. This is what makes us unique from everyone else. We are #TeamGomez and we would love to be part of your journey.”
A. Yanina Gomez, PhD
We work with you behind the scenes so that, at the end of the day, YOU get the spotlight.

The Art NXT Level Advantage
There are many professional artists programs out there. To advance in the art world, you need a guide in the inside who understands what you are going through and who is doing it along with you because the art world is continuously evolving. Someone experienced who lives in both sides of the art practice from the artist and the gallery perspective and has a trustworthy reputation in the field.
Imagine having access to a professional team (artist/curator/entrepreneur/psychologist) who is active in the field and who is there to brainstorm ideas with you and provide guidance and motivation right when you need it. This is not an online course or a class. It is ongoing support for your art career. That is the Art NXT Level Advantage!

Art Insiders Talk About Sergio Gomez
This quotes were originally published in the September issue of ACS Magazine.
"Sergio Gomez has played an important role in the development of the Zhou B Art Center. The Center started from nothing, bare bones to one of the most important art institutions and Sergio was instrumental in this development. He came in with a belief and the vision of what the Zhou B Art Center could and would be. He is the Director of exhibitions at the Zhou B Art Center and has curated hundreds of important shows, among them is the National Wet Paint MFA show and the Self Portrait show. He is a dedicated artist and sets an inspirational example for many young, aspiring and established artists through cultivation of his dedication, passion and love for art."
Zhou Brothers, internationally acclaimed artists
“Sergio Gomez is a present day iconoclast: successful artist, curator, instructor, and promoter. Other than his talent as an artist, perhaps his most important traits are his curiosity and empathy. I had the pleasure to meet and work with Sergio Gomez as we co-curated the Border Crossings exhibition for the 2014 Chicago Art Fair. With an impeccable work ethic, he generously shared his vast knowledge of the Chicago Latino art scene and continuously collaborated on cultural exchange between Mexico and Chicago.”
Margaret Failoni, independent international curator
“Sergio has enriched the Chicago metro area with his painting and his ability to organize, curate and share the gallery walls. He has exemplified the power of working collectively – in community and solidarity. By providing space and opportunity to come together, his philanthropic approach to creating art has advanced the Midwest community of working artists. His aspirations of building bridges between artists and cities across the globe have gained him the respect of his peers, as well as those who work in the cultural and humanities fields. Sergio is a writer and thinking artist who repeatedly looks beyond the canvas to recognize the necessity of the arts in our world. We are exceptionally fortunate to have him in Chicago! I am sure a younger generation of artists and artistic directors will reap some of the successful values and methods he has sown".
Cesáreo Moreno, Visual Arts Director / Chief Curator National Museum of Mexican Art
“Sergio is generous, dedicated, sincere and inspiring. Sergio is a trusted voice in the art world; the quality of his studio work speaks for itself. His discerning eye makes him a highly sought-after curator. Sergio’s generosity, however, truly sets him apart. He is consistently willing to share his vast knowledge to help other artists succeed, and his advice is refreshingly sincere and honest. Sergio has an amazing ability to connect people; he has curated my work into several shows in the past few years, elevating my career and providing incredible networking opportunities. To know Sergio is one of the great privileges and joys of my life. To exhibit alongside him is an honor beyond comparison. His support and encouragement mean more than I can say".
Samantha Haring, artist
