Artist Statement Workshop

Glens Falls, NY - LARAC presents artist-educator Dr. Renée O’Brien to lead an Artist Statement Workshop for artists on Tuesday, August 26th from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Dr. O’Brien will assist artists in all disciplines to develop well-written, focused statements about their work and provide insight into how their art functions in the contemporary art world. Artists of all mediums will benefit from this class for applying and showing art in exhibitions in the community and beyond.

Discussion will be on the following; finding your unique perspective, talking to your audience, explaining your story, discussing your influences, communicating your feelings, and introducing who you are and why you are making the art. Attending artists should bring a copy of their current statements, resume, and some samples of their work (can be color copies). The class will include instruction, writing exercises, and actual development of a new statement.

Dr. Renée O'Brien is an artist-educator who exhibits her photographs regionally and nationally, and lectures and writes on the history of art and photography. Dr. O'Brien completed her Ph.D. at NYU with a dissertation on photography and aesthetics, The Post-Romantic Vision of Contemporary Pinhole Photographers. She teaches at Adirondack Community College, Queensbury, NY and Empire State College, Center for Distance Learning, Saratoga Springs, NY.

Pre-registration is required. Cost to attend is $15 for LARAC members and $20 for non-members. Light refreshments will be served. Class size is limited. Please call 518-798-1144 x 2 or email Patrice at
