What's the difference between a nonprofit and a commercial gallery space? What can you expect from each and which is best suited to support your work in meaningful ways? Join artist, appraiser, and director of Darger HQ, Launa Bacon to learn more about the ins and outs of commercial gallery representation, working with nonprofit and artist-run spaces, and the pros and cons of each. This edition of WAW will take place at Darger HQ (1804 Vinton Street, Omaha, NE 68108).
WAW is a year-round series of professional development opportunities that focuses on learning practical skills, designed to help Omaha area artists cultivate or refresh the professional aspects of their creative practice. Each session is devoted to one topic led by professionals in the field and expert community partners.
Participants will create robust networks of peers and professional contacts alongside these opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.
Every session/workshop is free and open to the public. OCI cannot offer childcare services, but parents you are more than welcome to bring your children if childcare is not available to you.
The WAW Series is sponsored in part by the Peter Kiewit Foundation.
