Well this just got easy! I was going to write a quick blog about the Montana Artreprenuer Program, then I found this site.
It does such a great job giving a brief description of the program I figured why reinvent the wheel?
Instead I'll give a couple reasons why I'm completely excited about this program:
1. The opportunity to learn about running a successful art business by people who are doing it... Enter Meagan and Michael Blessing. Please check out this couple and their work. What they are doing for the Montana art industry is phenomenal.
2. It will give the galleries and collectors that I develop relationships with the confidence in knowing I take my art seriously and that I will be a responsible partner in furthering my craft.
3. Advocacy! As an emerging artist I can build relationships with established artists who may help me in my networking. My hope is to be able to offer the same to the next crop of emerging Montana artists...
Can you tell I'm excited about this? It should be easy to see why! Much thanks to the MAP Director Sheri Jarvis for taking so much time these last few weeks to bring me into the fold. Here's to a very exciting future indeed!
