NextFab 2022 Artisan Accelerator Program

NextFab 2022 Artisan Accelerator Program

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, February 23, 2022

NextFab’s Artisan Accelerator program is an 8-week experience that gives artisans and entrepreneurs the essential tools, support, and structure to focus on the things that matter to build viable businesses. Unlike other accelerator programs, the Artisan Accelerator is designed specifically to help artisan entrepreneurs craft profitable business models, reach new customers, and build sustainable companies. Two accelerator cohorts will be held each year, one in the spring and one in the fall, and six to eight applicants will be selected for each cohort.

Ideal candidates are individuals selling custom, handmade, and unique goods. To be eligible, applicants must be generating between $100 and $5,000 in sales per month. The application window opens on Monday, January 3, 2022, and closes on Wednesday, February 23, 2022.

My work can be traced back to my own personal history and experiences, yet rather than being personal symbols, it is a product of a collective memory that I share with the viewer.

Relationships
(I always say) are never easy:
especially those between
color, shape, texture, space . . .
and tension.
The relationship of the part to the part,
the part to the whole and the relationship
of the piece to the viewer . . . no matter
what materials I use is all important.
I use titles to emotionalize these abstract
pieces to help communicate a connection
between the individual and
the universal whole.

In the metal pieces I use recycled aluminum
printing press plates which I sand,
cut and glue onto wood panels, they are
about energy and light, patterns and
motion, all influenced by the microcosm
of life forms, biology, and a
hint of satire.
