Workshop on Artist Statement and Bios, This Friday! 2pm – 3:30pm (Zoom info below).

Join Visual Arts Faculty Lauren Boilini and Visual Arts Coordinator Michelle Pope for a writing workshop on artist statements and artist bios. This workshop is sponsored by, and in conjunction with, The Evergreen Virtual Gallery project. Spend time with Lauren on Zoom tackling the ins and outs of this necessary evil: writing about your work and yourself. Building a vocabulary for your practice as a maker can help introduce your work to an audience, along with assisting in grant applications, approaching galleries, applying for graduate school and artist residencies. Working on your statement alongside your bio will help you build a foundation for creating your resume and future cover letters.

Local and national resources on grants, public art, exhibition opportunities and pandemic funding for artists will also be shared, along with an approach to job hunting. This workshop is geared towards students interested in a career in the arts, along with those curious enough to get their feet wet. Since statements and bios are a requirement for your virtual gallery submission, consider this an opportunity to review and revise, getting your writing ready for a virtual audience!

Also, please don’t forget to submit your form to be featured in our end-of-year Virtual Galleries, due this Thursday, 5pm!

Please help spread the word about this FREE workshop!
