Artist Support Group

Artistry’s Artist Support Group is designed to give visual artists the chance to make connections with other artists and receive information, tools, and skill-building opportunities to advance their own artwork and career.  Group meetings are free, occur on a Tuesday evening every other month from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., and focus on a different topic each session. Meetings may also include time to critique current work and share information about participants' upcoming art happenings.

Next Artist Support Group Meeting

Applying to a Call for Artists Using CaFE™
Tuesday, January 29, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Presenter: Rachel Daly, Director of Visual Arts, Artistry
Meeting Location: McLeod Conference Room

This Artist Support Group will help artists who are interested in learning more about applying for an Artistry exhibition although the information can be applied and adapted to other exhibition opportunities that utilize the online review service, CaFE™ (callforentry.org). We will discuss Artistry’s application and what the curatorial panel will be looking for in their review. We’ll also walk through the online application process including formatting images and downloading a resume and artist statement. We’ll take the mystery out of online applications!

Pre-registration required! Please register by emailing Director of Visual Arts, Rachel Daly, rdaly@artistrymn.org

Although ASG meetings are still currently free, a $5 donation is suggested.
