Business of Art

New Event

September 25th and 26th 2020

The Business of Art is a seminar for visual artists in all disciplines with a goal of educating and training artists and enhancing economic development in our state and region.



The Business of Art is held annually for artists to come to learn and create a successful art business.


Dixie State University, in St. George Utah and the DSU Sears Art Museum, developed and sponsor this event as a community outreach program. Kathy Cieslewicz, DSU Director/Curator, originated the program and facilitates the event; Paul and Susan Bingham, owners of the Maynard Dixon Gallery serve as honorary founding co-chairs.
