Strategies for the Seasoned Artist

Recently I had the privilege of Moderating a Discussion Session entitled “Strategies for the Seasoned Artist” at an enrichment conference held by the Best of Missouri Hands artist organization.  The purpose was promoted to be figuring out how to gracefully transition to the next stage of the aging artist’s career.  The session was well attended, the discussions lively, and most heads were crowned with silver.The mediums represented were fiber, glass, metal, photography, jewelry, wood, painting,…See More
