River Region Art Summit

Learn about art opportunities available within our River Region

Free Admission

On January 27th, we hosted a great opportunity for novice and experienced artists alike! Artists from all over were invited to learn about art opportunities available within our River Region.  Local and regional art organizations had booths set up and discussed the opportunities they provide to artists like you. Keep an eye out, because we’ll probably be doing this again! So join us next time for guest speakers talking about art exhibitions and shows, fellowship opportunities, art programs and classes, and everything else an artist might want to know!
