Artists, musicians, writers, dancers, poets, performers, and arts administrators are invited to stop in, enjoy complimentary refreshments and talk about projects, plans, ideas, and interests. Often the key to unique opportunities is discovering who is doing what and interacting regularly with a circle of colleagues who are working creatively.
This month focuses on Workspaces for Artists with guests from Dance Alloy Theater, the Brew House Association, and Artists Image Resource.
One of the core strengths of artist communities is the belief in the creative process and trust in the artist. One of the ways that this is evidenced is when organizations nurture this creative process by providing workspace in a supportive environment for experimentation and innovation.
Often artists who have spent years working in a more isolated environment find the conversation, collaboration, and sharing of perspectives between artists in a shared space stimulating.
Shared studio space can also be a practical response to the demands of a specific art form, such as printmaking, glass arts, and digital media.
The "Get to Know the Artist" segment of the evening will feature Beth Corning, Artistic Executive Director of Dance Alloy Theater. Dance Alloy Theater offers state-of-the-art workspace rentals for artists for auditions, rehearsals, and informal performances and events.
Also joining the group for the evening will be representatives from Artists Image Resource (AIR) and the Brew House Association.
Artists Image Resource (AIR) is an artist run organization that integrates the production of fine art printwork with inovative educational programs that explore the creative process. AIR creates learning environments for artists, students and the community primarily through Its Open Studio -- Open House -- Open Study Initiative.
The Brew House Association is a non-profit organization established in 1991 to provide a supportive environment for artists to live and work. Its mission is to encourage community participation and create educational opportunities for artists and non-artists. It is committed to providing a public forum for creative expressions, to serve as a gathering place for artists, and to foster an appreciation of the arts within the larger community.
Last Days Cafe also provides a forum through which Pittsburgh's creative community can become more familiar with the resources available to them as they create new work, consider forming a new organization, or think about how, when and where to show their work.
