Remember the March tARTreads post where tART artist Clarity Haynes recommended the book Living and Sustaining a Creative Life by Sharon Louden.  You can refresh your memory here. Well  guess who is coming to town(all the way from  Brooklyn) to moderate a discussion in Manhattan but Sharon herself.


So mark your calendars – AGAIN!

Living and Sustaining a Creative Life: Essays by 40 working artists

by Sharon Louden


“It is really practical & geared to professional artists. I recommend it for all artists dedicated to the long haul. It’s about the myriad of different ways to have a career. Though it’s not focused on women artists, many of the contributors are women, and both women & men talk candidly about the challenges of raising families as artists.”
