Mainstreaming Engagement Workshop

“Mainstreaming Engagement” The Arts As A Powerful Force In Building Better Communities with Doug Borwick,  was a very powerful workshop that I attended.

Dr. Borwick is a leading advocate for community engagement in the arts. He is the author of Engaging Matters, a blog for ArtsJournal and the author/ editor of Building Communities , Not Audiences: The Future of Arts in the U.S.

The class offered by The Broward Cultural Division, was very informative. It was inspiring to hear about the shift in the art world and how we can all make a difference within our communities. The workshop provided wonderful information about new ways to approach how we can work as artists and the steps we need to take to make that change.

The Power to be the master of your own success…

Success will not necessarily come to you, you must take action and go for it. We all have the power to be the master of our own success but we have to do the work.

In this particular case, attending an amazing workshop and further educating myself in the arts is a great opportunity to feel inspired, network and give me ideas to ponder. BUT it is not enough… it is important to remember that you need to take all that information, understand the principles and put them into practice. Choose a path that is right for you, stay focused and do the work!

Thank You to the Broward Cultural Division for all the amazing workshops and all that you do to support the Arts and a very special thank you to Dr. Doug Borwick for taking the time to meet with me after the class one on one. The information you provided will be invaluable as I continue down my chosen path.

Stir It Up

Last week was the opening reception for the new show at Studio 18. Despite the rain it was a wonderful evening.

This exhibition is really exciting because it was a chance for me to experiment with something new. I created an installation of sketches that were executed over the past 30 years. Drawing from my imagination, these doodles give an insight into my life and how I have grown as an artist.

The power to experiment…

There are always valuable lessons to be learned when an artist experiment’s. As artists we are always evolving, taking risks is a vital part of the growing process. In this particular case I decided to not only exhibit my sketches which have never been seen, but also to display them in a unusual manner, hanging from wire with a twist. Is this experiment a success? I guess time will tell.

Thank You to Studio 18 in The Pines and to Robyn Vegas who curated the show!

The exhibition will hang until May 30, a Studio Salon will be held on Friday, May 3, 2013 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. All the artists will have a chance to speak about their works.
