Staying Sane as an Artist:
Keeping Your Creative Spirit Alive
Nadine Kenney Johnstone wrote Nine Babies on Ice, a memoir about facing death while trying to conceive through IVF. Both baby and book are realities.
Luke Bittel made a horrible movie called “Help Wanted.” Undaunted, he made “Some Assembly Required: They Don’t Teach You Failure in Film School,” a documentary about the making of “Help Wanted.” It’s doing very well.
RISD professor Clara Lieu explores the themes of isolation and mental illness through drawing, painting, and sculpture. Her book, Learn, Create and Teach: A Guide to Building a Creative Life, has led countless artists through their dark nights of the soul.
This is the kind of spirit we will celebrate with two other hard working, inspiring artists during the panel: “Staying Sane as an Artist: Keeping Your Creative Spirit Alive,” the second in a series of four free panels on creativity and the lives of artists at the GoodnowLibrary, 21 Concord Road in Sudbury on Wednesday, June 4th at 7:00pm, moderated by author Erica Ferencik. Other artists include award-winning animator Steve Gentile and actor and director Donna Folan.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Sudbury Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
