I signed up for Creative Capital emails a while back, and that is how I found out about the ISCP Lenore Tawney Fibers residency that I just applied for. But I also found out about an online professional practices workshop with artist Sharon Louden, and we are going into the third meeting of four tonight! I has been really informative. I really enjoyed her book Living and Sustaining a Creative Life that I read a couple of years ago on a residency. She has got her shit together. A lot of it is practice, organization and gratitude. And the nitty gritty details of business…like I know I need to collect emails and make a mailing list. But she is also having us identify 10 professional goals we have for ourselves. Here are some of mine:
…write a frankenstuffie book proposal
…submit a proposal to San Jose Institute of Art
…apply for a grant with the Chenven Foundation
…send a proposal to Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art
…exhibit with my talented friend, Marybeth Magyar
…and reach out to about five different galleries, just to start a conversation
There is so much yet to do.
