Living and Sustaining a Creative Life

April 5, 2017, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

“This manual is a testimony to the belief that art can, does and must have an existence that goes beyond the reach of the art market. These intimate essays have a disarming frankness, disclosing the lives of artists from the inside out rather than the outside in. They reveal how social action derives from self-reflection, and such artists turn personal hardships and financial difficulties into new practical models.” ~ Adam D. Weinberg, Alice Pratt Brown Director, Whitney Museum of American Art

Artist, educator, and author of Living and Sustaining a Creative Life, Sharon Louden will be bring her new book, The Artist as Culture Producer, to the Richmond Art Center and opening a dialogue on how artists contribute and enrich our culture. A collection of artists’ essays, a wealth of experience and dedication is shared in an open spirit of generosity by artists active across the country.

Join us for this enlightening, free talk with the author, Sharon Louden, and our Director of Exhibitions, Jan Wurm.
