Gossamer Arts was founded by Emily Watson-Rice in 2016. While working as the Director & Curator of Atlas Galleries she was continually amazed at the artists coming in asking for advice on how to get into a gallery like hers. They had no guidance, no business classes, no sales or marketing skills, no concept of how the art business worked, and without these, they had no chance of making a living as an artist. Emily began by taking a few minutes here and there to talk with these artists and give them some basic pointers but knew it wasn't nearly enough to be of much help. So she decided to start mentoring & training artists and teach them the skills they needed to run their art careers as a small business.
Simultaneously, Emily has been a Lyrical Fusion Belly Dancer since 1999. When Atlas Galleries closed in 2018, it gave Emily a unique opportunity to become a professional dancer, dance instructor & model while continuing her work with artists. In fact, Emily discovered that dancers and performers often had similar questions and struggles as painters, printmakers and other artists she was working with.
