Above is the awesome logo that Chad Kouri designed for our forum Beyond Walls, Nontraditional Ways of Making a Living as an Artist.

I am super excited (and a bit nervous) for my first Artist at Work Forum hosted by the Chicago Artist Resource. The workshop will open up with introductions from three Chicago artists and myself where we will be talking about how we sustain a living beyond the traditional brick and mortar gallery system. During the second part of the event there will be an audience discussion including myself and the following artists:

If you are in the Chicago area next week, feel free to drop by to say hello! The event is being held Downtown at the Chicago Cultural Center on Thursday, August 20th between 6-7:30PM and is located at 78 E. Washington, Chicago , IL 60602.


I promised a follow up to the panel presentation and am delighted to be able to share this information as part the of Design*Sponge’s Biz Ladies series.

Hi. I was there last night. It was great. I was actually one of the two people who found out through this blog (although I think only one of us was counted during the survey). Thank you for sharing! It was inspiring.

Thanks Amanda and Drew!

I’ll have a follow up to the presentation early next week.

Let me know if you have anything in particular that you wanted to talk about that we didn’t get to!

I found you via design sponge. Interesteing to see how other artists make a living. Internet hasn’t really felt like the way for me to sell my art – I’m concentrating on incomes from public commissions instead.

I’m actually writing a Sundays series about “art as business” … sharing my strategies, drawbacks and progress. Maybe it could interest you?
