Alison Stanfield to speak at Visual Arts Exchange

Did you know that there is a career-coach for artists? Alison Stanfield has made a difference in the lives of so many artists and creative people around the world and she'll be speaking in Raleigh on Saturday, May 21st at 5:00 pm at the Visual Arts Exchange. This talk is sponsored by the Carolina Mixed Media guild and the focus will be on self-promotion for artists. Alison recently released the book I'd Rather Be In The Studio! the Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion. I love that title. Wouldn't we all prefer to be in the studio?

This Saturday will be a busy day for a lot of us. I will be in my garden most of the day, showing visitors around for the Henside the Beltline Tour D'Coop garden tour, Artsplosure will be poured all over the downtown streets and sidewalks and there are even some great classes at the store. If you are coming to my coop, or to Artsplosure, or to take a class spend a little more time in downtown Raleigh and hear Alison read from her new book. Her advice may just make your work a little easier.
