Surthriving COVID: Art, Art supplies, Artist incubator, at La Cosecha
Since 2001, La Cosecha Galeria has gained a reputation for three things: being aggressively proactive, developing artists, and selling art. As we survey the landscape for the future in the arts community, many artists and arts organizations may not survive, nor will we go back to how things operated previously. The choice becomes simple—either spend our time as artists making a living or making art live for us. Whatever the obstacle. Denied funding, access to shows, unaccepted into the fine arts community, a pandemic or just opening in a new location, it matters not. Artists will create. Thirty-one pieces in two months—that is artwork sold since our doors have opened. As well as sixteen musicians, poets and performers had the opportunity to participate in shows with us. Meaning multiple local artists, in a multitude of genres, earned income, including myself. Now we are excited to share our knowledge and launch the Incubator Studio as part of the Creative Industry Professional Development Program.
Incubator Studio Program
La Cosecha Galeria introduces our Incubator Studio as part of the Creative Industry Professional Development Program. Our program is specifically geared for individual artists, crafters, makers, and entrepreneurs. This approach creates synergetic benefit by providing high quality professional practice opportunities for artists, allowing for the development of a program which is responsive to the needs of artists at the local level and providing capacity to expand our reach of the program with strategic partners. We provide artist/business incubator space in three-month intervals while working continuously under consultation within the gallery scope of our Creative Industry Professional Development Programming.
