News from Lindsey Wilson College, Columbia, KY
A Lindsey Wilson College professor will discuss how artists can confront the realities of the marketplace while remaining true to their craft. LWC Associate Professor of Music Gerald Chafin will lead a forum, "Insights for Artists and Coping Skills for Everyone Else," from 4pm-5pmCT, CT Thursday, August 30, 2012, in Lindsey Wilson College's W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall, 155 Blue Raider Drive, Columbia, KY. The talk is free and open to the public.
The purpose of the forum is to provide an opportunity for artists to meet with other artists and discuss realities of the modern art world.
"The gathering for artists is intended to create a common ground that is shared by all arts areas," said Chafin, who is LWC director of choral ensembles. "Incredible talent just isn't enough in today's art world, whether you're a musician, a painter, a singer or a graphic designer. You have to have an entrepreneur-spirit as well."
Those who attend Chafin's forum do not have to be an artist.
"All you have to be is someone with an interest in an arts-based area who'd like to meet other artists and share ideas," he said. "We have classes in art appreciation and music appreciation to better understand the finer points of art and music. Now, let's work at appreciating, or understanding, the artists, the creators, themselves." - Duane Bonifer, Lindsey Wilson College
