Sharon Louden: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life
5 June 2018, 4.30pm - 7pm
New Art Exchange
Artist Sharon Louden will be talking about her new book, The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life (edited by Sharon Louden, Intellect Books, 2017), that offers a collection of essays by 40 visual artists describing how they extend their practices outside of their studios and contribute as change agents in their communities and add to creative economies through their out-of-the-box thinking. Louden argues that the misconception of artists as invisible and hidden is far from the truth and that instead artists furnish measurable and innovative outcomes at the front lines of education, the non-profit sector, and corporate environments.
Sharon M. Louden is an artist, educator, advocate for artists, and editor of the Living and Sustaining a Creative Life series of books. Sharon's work is held in major public and private collections in the United States, Europe and Asia. A teacher since 1991, her expertise spans studio and professional practice classes for students of all levels.
