Ever wondered about how galleries work? Want to learn more about what gallery representation means for artists? Want to learn more about galleries in Columbia?

Eileen Waddell of if ART Gallery will be our featured presented for October 15th monthly member meeting. Eileen will be talking about how to get exposure for your art, including how to get into a gallery and into regional shows. Are you ready for a group studio and the exposure that might provide?
