How does your artist statement hold up? Art Critic and writer Robert L. Pincus, PhD will discuss best practices on writing and updating your artist statement.
“The writing that artists craft about their work is likely to be the first thing that a viewer reads. My view is that it needs to give the audience a lucid and enticing window on the art. That could mean focusing on its genesis, the process of its creation or the nature of its style, imagery or materials; the emphasis should be up to the artist. This workshop will emphasize the importance of a lucid, direct style of writing and the importance of a clear sense of audience for the statement. It will include an exercise to help everyone clarify what kind of statement serves them best. ” – Robert L. Pincus, PhD.
