An Artists' Get Together, Saturday, September 25, 2 to 4pm

Re-emerging Artists
An Artists’ Support Network

 An Artists’ Get Together
Saturday, September 25 from 2 to 4 pm
Firehouse North Gallery
1790 Shattuck Ave

¨    Meet the Artists in the Work From the Model Figurative show
¨    Bring a few pieces of your work to share (or images of work)
¨    Discuss ways to build an artists support system
¨    Learn about the Re-emerging Artists Network
¨    Share your experiences sustaining a career in art

Are you working at art full time after many years of doing something else like raising a family or a full time job? Have you recently retired or left your job and want to get back to painting?  Or are you back at work full and trying to find time to do art.  Sustaining a lifetime of creative work is an art in itself. People find that when they finally have the time there is little extra money for a studio or supplies and when they have the money there is not enough time. Isolation and a lack of feedback can make you feel stuck. Come join us for a discussion of strategies that have worked.  Meet others struggling with the same issues.

Please RSVP to Karen at

Model in a Belly Dancer Costume

I did this before our show and it seems like a long time ago now. Our model was also a belly dancer and makes her own costumes.  She took a standing pose and that is pretty rare for our group. But I think she regretted it the second week because she was pretty tired that day. But still it was great to have a standing pose for a change.  Karen
