Hood River Artist2Artist is this Saturday!

Hey all PPASPers (and friends of PPASP too)....just a reminder that Artist 2 Artist is on this Saturday. If you haven't already signed up, you can register online or at the gallery.

The focus for this day-long workshop is to provide artists with some practical information about opportunities that currently exist for artists in Oregon and Washington. The Keynote speaker is Gigi Rosenberg who is a writer, speaker, presentation coach, and author of The Artist’s Guide to Grant Writing: How to Find Funds and Write Foolproof Proposals for the Visual, Literary, and Performing Artist.

In addition to Gigi’s talk, there will be a moderated panel discussion of artists who have successful experiences of getting paid for more than just their artwork. The Panelists bring expertise in education, strategic grant writing, commercial enterprise, artist residencies, and commissions.

This year the Gallery has been overwhelmed with the number of artists who question their prices and quality of work just because things aren’t selling. It’s important for artists to recognize that it’s not your artwork—it’s the economy! That said, there are things you can do about it! I encourage you to spend $25* and attend this development event (free parking and brunch is included—what a deal!) and get motivated on some actions you can take to further your art career.

*Price is $15 for juried Columbia Art Gallery members; please register directly at the gallery or via phone to receive discount.
