Living and Sustaining a Creative Life, presented by Cannonball
3852 N. Miami Ave., Miami; RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org or 786-347-2360.
Many emerging artists struggle with a plan for sustaining a life-long career in art as the traditional route through commercial galleries becomes obsolete. To address this issue, successful artist Sharon Louden edited a collection of 40 essays written by artists who explore the challenge of staying active and relevant in their competitive industry. She and a group of panelists will discuss her new book, Living and Sustaining a Creative Life, which published last month, at Locust Projects on Tuesday, Nov. 12 from 7 – 9 p.m.
The panel comprises Robert Chambers, artist; Naomi Fisher, artist and co-founder/co-director of Bas Fisher Invitational; Glexis Novoa, artist; Austin Thomas, artist and owner/director of Pocket Utopia; and, Chris Cook, moderator and executive director of Cannonball, formerly LegalArt.
The group and guests will discuss the growing popularity of dynamic professional disciplines, from community and economic development to creative administration and museum programming, in hopes of inspiring up-and-coming artists to think positively about their future in contemporary art. Louden and book contributor Thomas will be on hand after the discussion to sign copies of the book, which will be available for purchase for $40.
