Most artists want their artwork to speak for itself but fans, patrons, grant and residency panels, advanced degree programs, gallery directors, museums, and the press often ask for words to go along with the work. Joel Parsons will guide us through the pitfalls and pleasures of writing about our work. Come prepared to do a writing exercise or two and to help others explore their writing process.
Hustle: professional development for artists is a free program organized by ArtsMemphis, UrbanArt Commission, and Crosstown Arts. The series will provide visual artists with information, resources and opportunities to support them in the development of their professional careers. Workshop topics will range from positive studio practices to pricing work and navigating gallery representation. Questions? Contact Mary Jo Karimnia at firstname.lastname@example.org
