Today, I want to share with you a very helpful resource:
St. Louis Volunteer Lawyers and Accountants for the Arts or VLAA for short.
In addition to great free publications and guides like
their Guide to Leasing Studio Space and
Guide to Artist-Gallery Consignment Contracts,
I’m really excited that they are offering these affordable workshops for artists this fall:
