Art House Dallas is hosting a business workshop for artists.
Today’s artist has to master their craft, think like an entrepreneur, and market their work. It sounds like a lot—because it is. But staying true to the vocational call of being an artist does not have to mean going without pay. This day-long Saturday workshop taught by experienced and knowledgeable leaders is designed to give artists the tools and resources needed to excel in their work, build a business, and fulfill their calling as a creative.
Together we will explore: business models, entrepreneurship, finding gaps in the market, what it looks like to understand who you are as an artist, developing the audience you want, and the brand you need.
Space is limited to 30 attendees, registration required.

Art House Dallas is honored to welcome Malcolm Guite for a conversation on “A Local Habitation: Incarnation, Arts, and Community.” According to Shakespeare (and perhaps any artist) is the business of Incarnation, of 'bodying forth’ of giving things flesh, turning airy abstractions into something we can see and feel. Shakespeare goes further, he says:
And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.
This talk will explore what this view of art means for local artists and local communities, it will also explore the strong parallels it has with Christian teaching about the Incarnation, about a God who comes down to earth and gets involved locally. Malcolm’s talk will be followed by a Q & A.
Poet-Priest Malcolm Guite is the Chaplain and Supernumerary Fellow of Girton College, Cambridge, and teaches at the Faculty of Divinity at the University of Cambridge. He lectures widely in England and North America on Theology and Literature and has published poetry, theology, and literary criticism and has worked as a librettist. Malcolm has a particular interest in the imagination as a truth-bearing faculty and continues to reflect deeply on how poetry can stimulate and re-awaken our prayer life.
