The Arts Business Institute is pleased to announce scholarship opportunities for artists interested in attending the 2014 Winter Workshop in Philadelphia.
This workshop is our largest event of the year, including a two-day intensive business learning experience and a tour of the Buyers Market, which is the largest trade show for handmade goods in the country. Artists who attend also have the opportunity for their work to be critiqued by gallery owners and to schedule a personalized business consultation.
The workshop will take place on the weekend of January 18-19, 2014.
Betty Lou Shaw Scholarship – Begun in 2012, this scholarship is sponsored by long-time Buyers Market exhibitor Julie Shaw, whose popular jewelry collection is the epitome of design and fine craftsmanship. The scholarship was created in memory of her mother, Betty Lou Shaw, who passed away last year.
One full scholarship, worth $250 will be awarded, and a second scholarship, worth $100 will also be awarded. These scholarships will be awarded to two jewelry artists based on excellence of work and on the basis of need.
Steve R. Rosen Scholarship – This scholarship fund was established in July, 2013 in memoriam to Steve Rosen, a beloved ABI faculty member and husband of Buyer’s Market founder Wendy Rosen.
Open to artists in any medium, Steve Rosen scholarships will be awarded to artists in craft mediums who show excellence in design and skill, and are interested in learning about the wholesale marketplace.
Interested artists can apply for both scholarships through one application.
