It's 'open call' season for visual arts in Houston! 

Are you planning to apply for one of the many local "Calls for Exhibition Proposals" in the coming months? Before you do, Fresh Arts invites individual artists to sit down with a few of Houston's art directors to talk about ways to improve your project proposal. This workshop and curator panel will cover: the basics of writing an effective project proposal, some examples of successful proposals, what reviewers are looking for in an exhibition submission, common pitfalls, what local opportunities are currently available to individual artists. There will also be an informal Q&A session when participants can ask specific questions to an esteemed panel of representatives including Jennie Ash, visual arts director of Art League, and Katia Zavistovski, Lawndale Art Center programming chair.



Seating is limited so please register early to secure your spot!

Only available >>> Late registration: (after noon, Tues., March 8 or at the door)
$10/members :: $20/non-members
