Artist Trust  Supporting individual artists working in all disciplines throughout Washington State since 1986.


“Making a thing isn’t enough. Like Jay-Z said, ‘I’m not a businessman – I’m a business, man.’ Once you’ve made the thing, you need to know what to do with it – how to build a platform for it, market it, sell it, etc." - Brian McGuigan, Artist Trust Program Director.

Brian is leading "Work Sample Dos & Don'ts" happening on Sept. 28, 6:30-8:00 PM at Equinox Studios. The workshop will cover what makes a strong work sample and what doesn't. Read more about Brian on our blog and sign up for the workshop today! artisttrust.org/index.php/news/blog
