The initial 2016 conference was a multi-day professional development opportunity, titled “Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp”, which delved into the principles of sustainability in the arts. Participating artists learned how to extend their artistic careers and retained fundamental skill-sets such as budgeting, marketing, and grant writing. Since this weekend long workshop series, the group maintained contact and continued to work together to achieve their professional goals, including this first-time collective exhibition.
“Merging Mediums” will be on view March 2 – March 7, 2018. Gallery hours are available upon request. Contact Natalie at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-523-0068.
