Finding any kind of balance in life is a challenge, but balancing creative output with “other” always seems especially tough. Tonight, hear how other artists try to manage it at the panel "Living & Sustaining a Creative Life" which is also the name of a new collection of essays by 40 practicing artists and edited by Sharon Louden. Co-panelists include local artists Patrick McDonough and Jeff Spaulding.
Also of note is the co-sponsorship of this event by Curator’s Office and American University’s Studio Art Program. Curator’s Office, sans permanent space, will be doing more programming and collaborative work this year, and this first foray of 2014 may be a good barometer of what to expect in the next year.
"Living & Sustaining a Creative Life" begins at 7pm on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at The Hirshhorn’s Ring Auditorium. Event is free but get there early as it’s first come, first served.

ICYMI: Kriston Capps’ redux on the DC gallery scene, several of last year’s losses of physical gallery space (Civilian Art Projects, Contemporary Wing and Curator’s Office) —- although the galleries themselves remain active, and more.
2014 will be an interesting year for DC’s gallery scene for sure. Also, I plan on making some new changes/adjustments as well, so stay tuned;)
