Solo Exhibitions Program at the Nomad – accepting applications

From the fine folks at Altered Esthetics:

“Through the Solo Exhibitions program, Altered Esthetics provides an opportunity for artistic growth, access, exploration, and the promotion of emerging artists through community outreach and local partnerships. In addition to providing Nomad World Pub for a solo show in the community, Altered Esthetics assists with career guidance and growth with organization and business skills needed to develop and maintain a successful art career.

The solo exhibitions program is an exceptional program for emerging artists because it not only helps them have a successful first opening experience, but it also trains them to step to the next level in their artistic careers. Are you interested in applying to the program for next year?
