Join us for FREE workshops to make the best impression with your business communications.

'Best Practices for Professional Artists.' The series will provide tips and
tools on all the important aspects of presenting yourself professionally
as an artist.

when receiving an artist contract, how to frame and hang your artwork, or 
what social media platforms are out there and how each can work for you as 
an artist; these workshops will provide insight. No matter what your medium, 
no matter where you are in your artistic career!

Join VSA Ohio during our second summer at the Pearl Alley Farmers Market! The VSAO @ Pearl Market Merchant opportunity is an effort to provide artists with disabilities the opportunity to sell their art, become a self-advocate, and learn more about being a professional artist. Selling your art at community markets and festivals is a great way to connect with new patrons. However, the requirements for application, initial fees, and physical logistics can be cumbersome. To make this type of opportunity more accessible, VSA Ohio has secured a booth at the seasonal Pearl Alley Farmers Market in downtown Columbus. Artists and Groups from across Ohio may apply to be a Market Merchant at this booth for NO FEE. Read further for more information about applying to sell your work at this booth and be part of a fabulous local business opportunity!
