Confluence Gallery and Art Center is pleased to present the second annual Make / ART / Work Conference. Make / ART / Work is a day-long professional development conference focused on the  unique needs of Okanogan County artists. The event will feature skill building workshops geared toward artists of all disciplines and at all levels of their career. Local and regional instructors will offer practical methods to help artists implement art business strategies into their everyday work. Registration for the full conference is offered at a sliding scale $0-45. Artists from other locations are welcome to attend.


Confluence Gallery and Art Center seeks to cultivate a vibrant community by connecting artists with the skills, information, and services they need to make a living and a life as an artist in rural Eastern Washington State. CGAC believes that fostering artist success will build vitality beyond the arts community and into the region at large.


Sessions will be taught by local and regional art professionals including: Artist Trust, Seattle Art Museum, VMG Studios, and Confluence Gallery.
