The Community Arts Program at Hanover College brings arts and cultural opportunities to southeastern Indiana with student and professional performances and exhibits on the historic Hanover College campus.
Serving Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Jefferson, Scott, & Washington Counties

This day-long workshop will cover where to seek funding in our Region for arts-related activities how to figure out what a funder “really wants” how to prepare a budget and a project assessment that sets you up for additional funding how to write a persuasive narrative that gets the funder as excited as you are about your project
Three opportunities; three locations:
May 23rd—Hanover College in Jefferson County
June 6th—Arts Council of Southern Indiana in Floyd County
August 23rd—Arts Council of Southern Indiana
The workshop will be conducted by Geoffrey Weiss, Grants Development Officer for the Rivers Institute at Hanover College. Dr. Weiss has over ten years experience teaching grant writing with the University of Kentucky Medical School and was most recently the recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities Picturing America School Collaboration grant.
The Regional Arts Partnership is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities

Artists at work in Mellwood’s courtyard….

In Art Classes, Call to Artists, Kentucky Artist on July 11, 2011 at 7:38 pm

The Mellwood Art Center is located at 1860 Mellwood Avenue, Louisville Kentucky. This unique building is located between Zorn Avenue and Brownsboro Road. Mellwood is known to many Louisville  natives as the old Fischer meat packing plant.

Now, Mellwood houses roughly over 200 tenants from artist and art galleries, to a cafe, dance studios and novelty shops.  The tenants of Mellwood has formed a non-profit organization named M.A.C., which will host demo days on the courtyard, the second Saturday of each month.

This allows artist to work outside their studio and gain exposure. Patrons my see performers, painters, wood carving or learn how to create a glass center piece. If you are an artist and would like to be a part of Demo Days, send an email to info@k-a-s-gallery.com.
