SHARON LOUDEN: LIVING AND SUSTAINING A CREATIVE LIFE: FORUM FOR DISCUSSION

Living and Sustaining a Creative Life: Forum for Discussion

EFA PROJECT SPACE
2ND FLOOR

WEDNESDAY, MAY 7TH
6:00 PM

Moderated by: Sharon Louden, Artist and Editor

Panelists include:

Sean Mellyn and Jennifer Dalton, Artists and Contributors to "Living and Sustaining a Creative Life"

Christian Viveros-Faune, Writer, Curator and Art Critic for the Village Voice

Paddy Johnson, is the founding Editor of Art F City and writes a column on art and Internet for artnet news

At a time when art is increasingly viewed as a commodity and art-school graduates feel that gallery representation is imperative for making a living and a career, it is more important than ever to show the reality of how an artist sustains a creative practice over time. The 40 essays collected in "Living and Sustaining a Creative Life" are written by artists in their own voices and take the form of narratives, statements and interviews. Although each story is different and unique, the common thread is an ongoing commitment to creativity, both inside and outside the studio, that helps define what "success" means to a professional artist today.

Named as one of the Top Art Books of 2013 by Hyperallergic, and already in its fourth printing in five months, "Living and Sustaining a Creative Life" unveils the mystery behind sustainable creativity. This event is a part of a 45+ stop book tour of town-hall forums all over the country.

About EFA Studio Program: Founded in 1998 as a program of the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, the EFA Studio Program was created to provide affordable studio space within a community of artists, facilitate career development, and promote public and critical exposure for our members. EFA Studios is housed on eight floors of the EFA building located in Midtown Manhattan’s Fashion District, in close proximity to the city’s primary gallery districts. Members are selected by a jury of respected arts professionals, through a competitive application process. EFA Studios facilitates interaction with dealers, curators, and critics to provide continued development for member-artists. Unique among studio programs in New York City, EFA Studios is one of the few remaining arts organizations still providing long-term workspace in Manhattan.
