Description

In this ever-changing world, do you wonder how artists are being creative, sustaining their lives, inspiring people behind the scenes? Who are the visual artists out there we don't know about, who don't live their lives in the artworld spotlight but are making an impact in their communities? And what are the models of how they are living in this tenuous time in the arts? Join artist, author, and acclaimed lecturer Sharon Louden in this talk dispelling the belief that there is only one way to chart a path into a creative and sustainable life as an artist by revealing a few distinctly different artists who are living their lives despite the obstacles.


Participants will learn the reality of how artists -- from the unknown to the established -- juggle their creative lives with the everyday needs of making a living. Sharon will share insights from her years of interviewing luminaries and exceptional individuals in the art world, as well as her extensive depth of teaching and leadership experience. Using data collected over four years during two extensive book tours across the United States and abroad, she will also detail what she learned from the front-lines of the creative landscape, including the needs and wants of working artists at the forefront of the visual arts.


Sharon is currently the Artistic Director of the Chautauqua Visual Arts at Chautauqua Institution and is also a mentor in the MFA Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.


All are welcome in this inclusive, interactive, and informative conversation.
