This season’s professional development workshops for artists feature topics such as Making Time to Make Art, Exhibition Installation and Shipping, How to Properly Document Your Work, Pricing Your Work, and developing Portfolios for Commercial Galleries. Running April to May in Halifax, Annapolis Royal, and Truro, the series features the expertise of instructors Stacey Cornelius, David Dahms, Sarah Maloney, and Christopher Webb.
VANS is also partnering with CARFAC Maritimes to offer artists an opportunity to learn more about Best Practices for Artists specifically focusing on the Charitable Donations of Artworks and touching on other guides for standards and procedures for working as and with artists.
In addition, VANS is organizing a free Panel Discussion: Artist Owned & Artist Run – Gallery Co-operatives, discussing how co-op galleries are started and sustained, and how co-operatively run galleries support art and artists in the province.

In offering these workshops, VANS supports the visual arts in Nova Scotia by keeping artists apprised of methods and opportunities to develop artistically and professionally.
