Thanks to everyone who participated in this competition to win the scholarship to the Arts Business Institute's scholarships to their upcoming art business workshops in Philadelphia in January. Here are the results from the director of the institute, Carolyn Edlund:
$250 full tuition scholarship - Chris Ingram, sculptor from CA (see his work here https://www.etsy.com/listing/119406722/bronze-statue-of-hercules-by-chris)$100 partial scholarship - Flora Carlile-Kovacs, fiber artist from WA state (see her work here http://floranemez.eu/)Since you had so many artists apply, I was able to pool those applications with a couple of other scholarship opportunities we had available, including a SNAG scholarship, NICHE Magazine scholarship and Steve Rosen scholarship. Therefore, several other people who applied through AFI are being given awards to attend the workshop as well.We have been flush with scholarship money this year, because of donations made after Steve’s death last July. Although Steve died tragically, I know he would be happy to know we have been able to help so many artists in his name.
(A little background: these scholarship funds came about as a bequest from the estate of Steve Rosen, husband of Wendy Rosen, founder of the Buyer's Market and the Arts Business Institute, who died in a fall in the summer of 2013.)
Congrats to the winners.
