Cornwall ON – Artpreneur is back for its 3rd year event! This year it’s taking place at the gorgeous NAV CAN facility in Cornwall Ontario, and special to the event this year is a $2000.00 cash grant money and many other prizes including a $1500 ad package here on The Cornwall Free News!
The event, created by the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre three years ago, stimulates the entrepreneurial seeds that every artist has and needs to nurture to survive and thrive.
The two day event features speakers and workshops that help Artists elevate their entrepreneurial skills and tools.
This year’s Keynote speaker is Elizabeth Goluch whose focus for the past 10 years has been in creating one of a kind, larger than life, highly detailed metal insects. Each complex, nature perfect sculpture incorporates gold, silver, enamel and gemstones in its construction. The decorative details and the treasure contained in each piece reference elements of insect life, lore and environment.
Elizabeth is a member of the Metal Arts Guild of Nova Scotia and has held the office of President and Secretary. She has been named Best in Show in numerous M.A.G.N.S. competitions and exhibitions. She has won the coveted Frank Phillips Award for Excellence in Craftsmanship. She sits on the Standards Committee of the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council and on the Exhibition Review Committee of the Mary E. Black Gallery in Halifax.
Elizabeth’s work has been shown in Canada, the USA, the Czech Republic and South Korea. It can be found in public and private collections in Canada, the USA, Denmark, Australia and Hong Kong.
