SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Mission Federal ArtWalk, San Diego Visual Arts Network and The Studio Door have announced a unique opportunity for local artists with this year’s The Business of Art scholarship in conjunction with the 34rd Annual Mission Federal ArtWalk in Little Italy held April 28 and 29.

The Business of Art scholarship is awarded to one lucky art student or emerging artist who has a body of work to showcase and is interested in selling their artwork. The scholarship includes a booth at the prestigious art festival, professional development throughout 2018, and an impressive marketing package.

“This is such a fantastic opportunity for artists who want to engage in creative commerce,” said Patric Stillman, The Business of Art Mentor and Owner of The Studio Door. “The whole package that The Business of Art scholarship offers is the type of platform that can really help establish an exciting career path for an emerging artist.  Its a rare opportunity to find industry professionals that will take the time to nurture local talent and help guide them through the realities of the art world. I’m happy to be a part of this cooperative effort.”

The recipient will follow in the footsteps of last year’s scholar Mikaela McLeish, whose large scale oil paintings are currently on display at The Studio Door in North Park throughout January as part of 3•UP, an exhibition on figurative art also featuring David Jester and Margaret Chiaro.  In addition to having a successful experience at ArtWalk last year, Mikaela was also selected by Art San Diego as their Launchpad Artist of 2017.  Her star continues to rise on the local arts scene due to her commitment and dedication to her art.

Complete details for The Business of Art scholarship can be found online at http://thestudiodoor.com/inside/?page_id=7614. Applications are being accepted though February 15, 2018.  Interested artists are encouraged to apply and take the next step to navigate the complex art industry while participating in this year’s Mission Federal ArtWalk.  Please also visit the websites of Mission Federal ArtWalk (artwalksandiego.org) and San Diego Visual Arts Network (sdvisualarts.net) to learn more about San Diego’s premiere art events.

  1. Thank you for helping to spread the word on this opportunity. Last year’s scholar went on to be selected by Art San Diego as the Launch Pad artist of the year and just picked up a residency in France. The scholarship can be just the starting point. Looking forward to seeing the work and meeting the artists for this year’s program.
