The artist incubator presents artists with a six week opportunity for professional growth, exhibition experience, and collaboration with SSAG volunteer of experts in art and business. We seek artists who want to take ownership of this unique exhibition space and engage with the public.
The goal of the incubator is to activate community, support the local ecosystem and provide artists with professional development. While participating the artists are encouraged to create new work, generate bold ideas, have vision, and make meaningful connections with our visitors and our community.
The art gallery is a 400-sq ft space exclusively dedicated to providing artists the opportunity for a solo exhibition while partiicpating in the six week artist incubator professional development program. The goal is to relocate the gallery into a larger space as we grow to accommodate more art and greater opportunities for artists.
