WORKSHOP
THE BUSINESS OF ART
Saturday, November 12
12:00pm-4:00pm
$10 | scholarships available: info@surelsplace.org
limited to 30 | registration required

Art is a business.  Or can be. An art career requires talent, preparation, relationships, proper presentation and productive and steady marketing. Treating your art career as a “business” means articulating what you want (goals) and creating the step-by-step plans to get you there.

Sponsored by the Idaho Commission on the Arts, this information-packed, half-day workshop will offer insights and action steps that could help you to take your career to the next level.

Facilitator McLean Emenegger, of McLean Art Projects in Los Angeles, employs her multifaceted art world experience in her teaching and art career consulting work. She has curated for multiple institutions in California and also worked in the art publication field. As an independent curator, her projects have been reviewed in the Los Angeles Times, Artweek, Artscene, Review Magazine, The Huffington Post among others. She is also a visual artist.

HOUSE CONCERT & BENEFIT
BELINDA BOWLER
Saturday, November 26  |  7PM-9PM
Local wine and fine hors d’oeuvres
50 Seats Only
$75 ($50 tax deductible)  |  Tickets Available Here

Join us for this intimate house concert and benefit, featuring music from Ms. Bowler’s new cd, Trumpet Vine. With only 50 tickets available and ample opportunity to visit with the artist between sets, this evening will be memorable and warm.  And because the evening is a benefit performance for Surel’s Place, $50 of the ticket price is a tax-deductible contribution.

Belinda Bowler has been singing as long as she can remember. Her father was a professional singer and she grew up in a home where music was a centerpiece. When she was in the 2nd grade she picked up a guitar, learned three chords, and was off and running. She began singing professionally when she was in college and spent several years touring the Northwest and a couple of tours through Great Britain. Her life took a turn when she became an elementary school educator for a ten-year period. She continues to spend time in schools, but now as a music teacher.

Surel’s Place is a 501(c)3 non-profit that honors the legacy of artist Surel Mitchell by offering her home and studio to artists of promise, and of renown, for month-long residencies and professionally supported art events. In this inspiring live/work space artists of all disciplines are given time and freedom to reflect, create, and share their work with the Idaho community.
