UArts Workshop 7/26/13

Last friday, I attended a UArts workshop that was originally for grad students but Michele 
invited Philip and I to attend. During the first half of the workshop Shelley Spector explained 
to all that attended how to strive as an artist. She began by talking about the different types 
of ways to get your name out there and also make some money while you're doing it. These 
examples included:

Shelley also spoke in detail about the differences between cover letters, resumes and cv's. She said
how in a cv the artist should keep EVERYTHING they have ever done, like an artist's index.
Then an artist's resume should be more personal, depending on what kind of job/opportunity the artist 
may be applying for. Shelley also stressed the importance of writing multiple cover letters, it is not
recommended that an artist send out only one cover letter to a ton of opportunities, but however 
make them personalized as well as the resume. We are to pick and choose from our cv what should
and shouldn't be included into our resume. 

We also spoke of the different styles of artist statements, where Shelley gave us a list of words that would help us with the main point behind our statements.
-Inspiration/ influences
-Relationship to
-Specifics- size, materials, history 

After the workshop, Ken Yanoviak (who photographed Michele's pieces for her show that was at the Painted Bride in April) gave us the opportunity to have our work professionally photographed which I found particularly exciting. Its not often that an artist can have their work photographed for free! Ken showed us different scenarios and how to photograph different kinds of work, then after informing us of the basics, he photographed all of our work. 
Below are the pieces that Ken photographed for me (I was so very happy with the way they all came out! It was definitely a great opportunity to attend this workshop.)

 (Ken said the contrast in the photo above was too extreme, so he retook the shot, but I think I like both shots equally!)
