Event Description

How to Live the Artist’s Life: The Arts Council presents Author Paul Dorrell

 

Continuing our dedication to local artists, we are pleased to present an event at the Whitney Center’s Cultural Arts Center with Paul Dorrell, author of Living the Artist’s Life: Updated & Revised, on Tuesday, November 13th at 7 p.m. at 200 Leeder Hill Drive in Hamden, south entrance. The event is open to the public at no cost, with free parking.

 

Dorrell will discuss his book and conduct an abbreviated version of his career workshop, accompanied by a handout with a Q&A session. A book signing will follow his presentation. Dorell opened Leopold Gallery in 1991, and has been advancing artists’ careers on a national level ever since. Learn from his experience and come to this event to take your artistic career to the next level!  

 

Dorell’s books address a myriad of topics, everything from how to get your work into a gallery, how to handle self-doubt. He also tells the story of his gallery's initial failures and eventual successes. Regardless of your place in the arts, you are sure to benefit from the discussion. To learn more about Dorrell and his work, go to LeopoldGallery.com.

 

Praise for Living the Artist's Life: Update & Revised

“The success of the book hasn’t dimmed Dorrell’s drive to help undiscovered artists get the recognition he feels they deserve.  It’s also heavy on pragmatic advice from pricing and promoting one’s work to gaining acceptance by galleries.” 

-The Associated Press

 

“An entertaining and highly valuable guide for aspiring and working artists.”

-Murray Dessner,

Painting Instructor and Critic, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia

Making Recovery Equitable

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
