    Coming up in 2018…

    CREATE YOUR WORK IN AN INSPIRING PLACE: ALL ABOUT ARTIST RESIDENCIES

    Artist Residencies are opportunities for artists to create work in a different environment from two weeks to one year. They range from sophisticated multimedia labs to shacks in national parks to international collaborative opportunities. They exist all around the United States and internationally, and await your application. Many of them are free, and all are invigorating. Liz Roth has been awarded many residencies both in the United States and Japan, and will explain what residencies are, how to find them, and how to create a winning application for them.

    All others are welcome at $15 for OVAC members and $20 for non-members. Space will be limited, so plan to reserve your spot! Registration will open soon!

    EXHIBITION-READY: DISPLAYING YOUR ARTWORK

    During this workshop participants will learn about the tools and commitment it takes to build your own frames, crates, and pedestals. How-to resources will be included.  In addition, participants will learn the basics of matting and framing techniques. Soft and hybrid crate building will also be covered, along with installation tools, techniques, and exhibition best practices.

    Artists selected to participate in Momentum 2018 are invited to attend at no cost, regardless of membership status. All others are welcome at $15 for OVAC members and $20 for non-members. Space will be limited, so reserve your spot soon!

    Saturday, February 17th, 1-4 PM
    Location TBA

    Registration will open soon!

    Scholarships are available for Artist Survival Kit workshops. Email us for details.

    The Resource Guide and Member Directory is a free resource we annually offer to active OVAC members. Current members are mailed a copy each summer, and as new members join, they will receive a copy in their welcome kit (unless you request a “green” membership–in which case you can always view a pdf of the document on the member page after you login to our website).
