“Crafting an Artist Statement” on March 13, 2018

The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a professional development seminar for artists and other creative people on Tuesday, March 13, from 5:30-7:00 PM at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville. Join us as we welcome Kelly Hider!

A successful artist statement should both give guidance to the viewer, and leave room for contemplation – it is better not give everything away! This evening workshop will go over key components of a successful artist statement, brainstorming and writing techniques, examples of successful artist statements, as well as individual feedback about your statement.

Kelly welcomes any type of artist who seeks help writing about their work or practice. This workshop is limited to 15 participants to ensure individual attention. A preliminary writing assignment will be given a few weeks prior to the workshop.

Please confirm your spot in the workshop via credit card payment here. The presentation fees are:

  • $10 for members of the Arts & Culture Alliance
  • $16 for non-members
  • $68 for a new membership + workshop
