HOUSTON - Feb. 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Artist John Ross Palmer of Houston, Texas will be in Columbia, South Carolina for three days in late February (2/25 to 2/27) to mentor South Carolina Honors College (“SCHC”) students that have been accepted into the inaugural Artist in Residence Program.  The “AIR” Program provides a cash stipend to accepted students to complete a creative project outside of their regular course-work for the Spring Semester.  Projects can be in any art field: painting, poetry, music, film and photography are examples.  Student applicants submitted written applications at the close of 2013 and then the selections were made in early 2014 after an in-person interview phase.  There are 10 SCHC students presently going through the prestigious program.

Palmer, the Hardest Working Man in the Art Business ®, is no stranger to mentoring and coaching others in the arts.  His acclaimed Escapist Mentorship Program (, founded in 2009, has had applicants from around the globe.  Palmer and his husband and business partner, attorney Ryan Lindsay, spend hundreds of hours per year coaching the accepted “Escapist Artists” on how not just to “survive” as an artist…but how to thrive.  Palmer’s Art Movement of Escapism aimed to forever destroy the stereotype of the struggling artist is fostered though his grassroots efforts of mentoring artists on salesmanship, wise self-promotion and how not to be tied to the traditional art gallery system.  Lindsay, a 2000 South Carolina Honors College graduate, is honored and thrilled to bring his husband back to South Carolina to give back to his beloved alma mater.

The SCHC AIR program is administered by Honors Student and Philosophy Major Sarah Koslov and overseen by Professor Dr. Edward Munn Sanchez.  Koslov has organized the three-day visit for Palmer and Lindsay to meet for individual coaching sessions with all 10 AIR students.  The Houston pair will also give an informal lecture with Q & A at the Honors College on the evening of Wednesday, February 26th on “The Business of Art.”  If you are interested in attending this upbeat and informative session please contact Koslov at
