The Artistic Toolbox: How To Write An Artist Statement

WHEN: February 22nd, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

COST: $25

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Creative Community

Artists are regularly expected to provide a statement on their artwork for exhibitions, grant applications, the press and more. Yet, an artist statement can be some of the most challenging paragraphs a visual artist is expected to write. How do you begin? What should you include? How do you even put words to art? This workshop “How To Write An Artist Statement” is here to help. Led by art critic and independent curator Danny Olda, the workshop will address what to expect of an artist statement, effective structures, language and wording, and you'll leave confident with a draft of a new artist statement.
