The Art Accelerator Program

Berea’s premier program for emerging artists and craftspeople!

The Art Accelerator Program provides 3-5 emerging artists the opportunity to dive into Berea’s rich artisan community, networking and learning from seasoned artists in the area throughout their term (up to sixteen months). They gain access to a dynamic studio space and collaboratively stock and manage Gallery 123, a retail sales outlet in the heart of Berea’s Artisan Village. The emerging artists bring their fresh perspective, energy, and talent to the community, upholding and revitalizing the legacy of Berea’s Craft Economy. Visitors are welcome to watch the artists at work in their studio as well as to peruse the Gallery. Presentations and demonstrations can be arranged for school and tour groups.
