Artist In Business Committee

The Encinitas Chamber of Commerce is joining forces with our arts community and the City of Encinitas Commission of the Arts and is proud to announce the formation of an “Artist in Business” program.   The Chamber along with Jim Gilliam, the Commission’s Arts Administrator, will be spearheading this initiative and we are asking for your support.

Local arts leaders will be working with the Chamber’s Communications Committee to create and implement this new and exciting program which expands exhibition opportunities for Encinitas visual artists, helps them increase their business skills and thrive in a difficult economy.   Artists, accepted into the program, will benefit from exposure in the Encinitas First monthly newsletter, at chamber events and via email blasts to the business community, along with other advertising opportunities.

The Encinitas Arts in Business program has a 3 pronged approach:

1)   to use the Visitor’s Center walls to host a series of rotating exhibits,

2)   to solicit local galleries to exhibit participating artist’s work, and

3)   solicit local businesses, with ample wall space, to exhibit artists work as well.

All three venues will offer the art for sale, in a way that businesses, artists and charity will be winners. We are working to create a Foundation for the Arts which will receive some of its support from a portion of the sales revenue that are generated.

We are now looking for a few local artists, business owners and gallery representatives to join our committee which will be co-chaired by Pat Reinhardt (Visitor Center Manager) and Nancy Buckley (Principal, Nexus Design).

We have comprised a list of more than 180 Encinitas artists and will be setting up an Artist in Business application on the Chamber’s website, as soon as our Committee gets underway.  Stay tuned for the details of this very exciting opportunity.

Please take an interest in helping to create a wonderful opportunity for your City and its creative community.
