Where the Process Creates the Answers

Risky Business: An art exhibit, opens May 17, 2012

without comments

I have been participating in the Artists’ Professional Toolbox (APT), put on by the Art’s & Business Council of Greater Boston. It is a career development program that has the intent of empowering practicing visual artists with the skills and confidence they need to master the business challenges of being an artist. It is a nine-month intensive course for a select group of artists to learn and practice marketing, networking, and business skills with the additional benefits of peer group interaction, mentorship, and feedback.

As a part of this talented group of artists, we had the opportunity to put some of the things we learned into action and curated our own show at the Art at 12 Gallery in the Fort Point Artist Community in South Boston. Below is our press release and show information. I hope that if you are in the area you will come to the opening reception or stop in and see the show while it is up through June 22nd. You won’t be disappointed!

If you can’t make the show, be sure to check out the video at the bottom of this post to see work by the other artists, or click on their links below to go to their websites.


Risky Business: Artist’s  Professional Toolbox (7), a multi-media art exhibit, at Art at 12 Gallery, 12 Farnsworth Street, Boston, MA from May 17 – June 22, 2012.  Reception with the artists on Thursday, May 17, 2012, 5-8pm.

Aren’t artists always taking risks?  Of course.  But you have to be a bold and courageous risk-taker to aspire to turn your relative passion into a career.  Enrolled in the Greater Boston Arts and Business Council’s  Artist’s Professional Toolbox program, now in it’s seventh year, these nineteen artists work to take their art and their businesses to a new level. The exhibit includes photography, painting, mixed media, installation, wire work, jewelry, video and sculpture.
