Part of the mission of the Main Street Gallery is to assist artists in portfolio preparation and professional development. To fulfill this mission, the Gallery Committee offers artists and curators individual consultations with a member of the Committee, and maintains a library of sample proposals.  Proposals are due toward the end of February each year. For help with a proposal, call the Arts Council office at (907) 225-2211, and/or check back here for the call for artists flyer.

Artist Development Workshops!

The Artist Development Workshop series was started in fall 2010, and is back by popular demand! We were thrilled to see local artists signing up for the opportunity to create and refine a portfolio of digital images, along with the basic components of any portfolio: artist’s bio, artist’s statement, slide list, and resume. We’ve seen many of the class participants putting their new portfolios to work! Congratulations to TWO of our class participants who are now being represented in local galleries following the Portfolio Share last year!

Artist Development Workshops TBA.
