Virginia Artists in the Marketplace
Move your business forward quickly, with two business opportunities for artists! Arts Council of the Valley, Blue Ridge Community College, and studioELL are partnering to offer Virginia Artists in the Marketplace, a residency program for visual artists living in the Shenandoah Valley. From the course description:
This second year will bring a new cohort together during the third week in May 2019 to dive deep into their studio practices and what it means to be a professional artist in today’s contemporary moment.
The residency will include a combination of lectures, workshops and seminars on a variety of professional practice topics such as: artist resumes/CVs, artist statements, branding, websites and web identities, applying to opportunities, exhibitions, and taxes and liability, (among other topics).
The week-long residency will conclude with a group exhibit at Arts Council of the Valley in January 2020. Sessions will be led by studioELL Founder and Director John Ros. John is also an Assistant Professor of Art at James Madison University and the Director and Chief Curator of Duke Hall Gallery of Fine Art within JMU’s School of Art, Design and Art History.
