Artist statements shed light on artists’ ideas

Several weeks ago, Dane Stickney of the Omaha Herald-Tribune contacted me because he was writing a story about the artist’s statement. I was fascinated that a reporter was interested in what is usually considered an esoteric  document in artists’ portfolios. After all, most of the general public has no idea what an artist statement is.

  • Thanks for this link — very interesting article! We were just at the Bemis center last weekend and are headed back for tonight’s annual art auction. They expect to raise $400,000 for their programs, so I’m excited to see how it goes. Also the Hot Shops is very cool place, so glad to see it mentioned in the article too.

  • Hi Alison,
    Thought you should know the link to the article goes to an entertainments page!

  • Thanks, Cathy. It worked for awhile, but I guess they cull after 3 years.
