Are you a working artist in Clatsop County who could use information and advice to help you progress professionally and experience business growth? The Arts Council of Clatsop County is presenting an opportunity for artists to learn from and be motivated by other creative professionals at its inaugural 2019 Arts Summit.

The summit, titled “The Business of Art: Artists Teaching Artists,” will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12, at the Seaside Civic and Convention Center. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.

“Clatsop County is a hotbed of creativity on the North Coast,” Arts Council President Dave Ambrose said. “We want to give musicians, visual artists, writers and theater artists an opportunity to learn more about turning their creativity into a business. By featuring successful artists as models and business people as teachers, we hope to move artists to the next step in making their creative endeavors work for them.”

The afternoon will include a variety of presentations, workshops, and performances from local groups, as well as opportunities for networking with other members of the arts community and gaining insight on the state of the arts in Clatsop County. Participants can attend two unique workshops from a selection of six that cover several topics, including business essentials, exploring income streams, marketing, and copyright issues. The event will conclude with a roundtable discussion, followed by a free viewing of Wes Anderson’s “Moonlight Kingdom” at the Times Theatre and Public House in Seaside at 6 p.m.

This new countywide event, which is free and open to the public, is generously sponsored by Sen. Betsy Johnson, Lewis & Clark Bank, the Astoria Sunday Market, Imogen Gallery, Found-Cannon Beach, Driftwood Restaurant and Lounge, and the Times Theatre.
