TOOLBOX TALK #2: SUCCESS IN THE ARTS
Artist Helen Calder will be joining us to discuss what defines (if definition is possible!) success as an artist. During her talk, she will dive into the different steps of the the arts ladder and how one might progress 'up the ladder'. And touch on the differences between artists that are commercially successful versus those that are shown at a public gallery and how those fields interact and/or influence each other.
Helen Calder’s continuing exploration of the properties and limits of paint as a material have taken it from the canvas, to the wall, and often away from the traditional supports of the medium, to engage with the exhibition space as the frame for painting.
Works are held in New Zealand private and public collections including the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Christchurch Art Gallery, Chartwell Trust, Fletcher Trust, Wallace Arts Trust and Simpson Grierson.
