Art Conversations: Shaping Emerging Artists: An Inquiry

What are the forces shaping the development of Portland’s emerging artists? How does arts education, the art marketplace, as well as efforts to brand the artist through work and artist statements, monographs and other packaging efforts influence the trajectory, success and satisfaction of artists?  How do arts professionals in Portland negotiate the tricky dance between creativity and commerce?
This panel discussion at Blackfish Gallery brings the viewpoints of local MFA faculty members, gallerists, and artists to this inquiry.  At stake is something fundamental: creating the best environment for creativity to flourish in our community.
This marks the seventh in a series of art conversations on interpreting, understand and collecting presented by the members of the Portland Art Dealers Association.
