The Emerging Artist program focuses on support and instruction for artists who are in the early stages of, or just beginning a professional artistic career. Artists selected for the program will learn the basics of designing, organizing, and hanging a show by experiencing it first hand from concept to opening reception with the continual support and mentorship of the ShenArts staff.
Some skills covered are:
- developing a theme or cohesive body of work
- composing an artist statement/bio
- determining titles & price points
- proper framing for a gallery show
- introductory art marketing
- hanging a show
- hosting an opening reception
Exhibits have been housed at the Old Town Welcome Center located at 33 East Boscawen St. in Winchester, and rotated bi-monthly. Receptions and meet-the-artists events are held on location.
