In Conversation Date & Speakers TBD

Artists discuss their lives and how they are actually “making it work” in the real world.  An informal discussion and Q&A, speaking directly about the experiences they have had, both positive and negative, and how they support themselves in parallel jobs as preparators, gallerists, administrators, and artist educators, while maintaining their core studio practice.

Books and related materials available for reading in the Main Gallery which cover issues of being an artist, including overviews of how to manage your career, as well as books related to living a creative life.  For each current Main Gallery exhibition there is also a selection of books providing additional information about exhibition themes.
