Welcome to an ART-filled 2020! Naples Art is thrilled to be kicking off the New Year with so many new opportunities!
Naples Art is offering a new membership program, featuring wonderful opportunities, from private invitations and guest lectures to free event tickets and VIP programs. The keystone however, of this year’s offerings from Naples Art, is the Artist Business Entrepreneurship Program: the ABE Program.
For over 66 years, Naples Art has understood that artists are essential members of society, contributing to the creative economy, revitalizing neighborhoods, and are crucial to social, civic, and business innovation. As the visual arts leader, we want to ensure every artist has the opportunity and skill sets needed to support themselves through the creation of their art. Naples Art, clear in their understanding of the obligation to their artists, developed this
one year program that provides professional development workshops and lectures allowing artists of all disciplines to develop and refine business skills that sustain their place in an evolving arts industry.
The added marketing opportunity that is available allows artists to expand their reach and showcase their work.
The exhibition and show calendar offers a diversity of riches from one of the best outdoor art shows in the nation to a passion-filled artistic dining experience at Dinner with Artists.
