It’s that time again! Contracts can be a tricky beast and intimidating for artists and curators, but our lectures will break down the finer details that are important to protecting the artist and their rights. The ‘Best Practices for Professional Development Workshop’ Contract Writing will cover what artists should look for in contracts for exhibitions and gallery representation.

Join OAL experienced artist Julie Abijanac and Legal Advisor Ann Hancock Saturday August 9th from 1- 3 pm at Strongwater (401 W Town St, Columbus, OH 43215) to get some insight on more of the legal aspects  and how to read the fine print of exhibition paperwork.
