As a faculty member in the MFA Fine Arts program at the School of Visual Arts in New York, Louden teaches professional practice and studio classes to all levels, and her work has been collected by and exhibited in numerous institutions. She is the editor of the Living and Sustaining a Creative Life books, published by Intellect Books and distributed by the University of Chicago Press. The final in the series, Last Artist Standing, will be published in 2022. As a Glowtown facilitator for schools and non-profits, and the Artistic Director of the Chautauqua Visual Arts at Chautauqua Institution, where she organizes a popular lecture series, we are thrilled to host the accomplished and kind Sharon Louden.

Facilitated by Assistant Curator and Director of Galleries, Meredith Lynn, the conversation will address the art world’s state in this particular moment and how the economic downturn is impacting arts organizations, artists, and publishing.

New Landscapes @ FSU Museum of Fine Arts
Sep 28 all-day

Florida State University’s Museum of Fine Arts has opened the new virtual exhibit New Landscapes, featuring more than 30 photographic works on loan from selected artists and from the museum’s permanent collection.

It is a New Landscape out there. It is a natural landscape, which we now share with a new life-threatening virus. It is a cultural landscape activated through righteous protests against racism, violence, and injustice. It is a digital landscape in which we gather and communicate. We perceive through the lenses of innumerable cameras that it is a new landscape, but we do not yet understand it. Museums, art galleries, and cultural organizations must confront the challenge of seeing, engaging with, and translating the experience of the new landscape. Technology will play an outsized role in how we come to terms with it, how we close the distances.

Please join Program Coordinator Annie Booth, on Friday, July 31 from 12:00 – 12:30 p.m. as she guides you through New Landscapes. On this tour, we will take a deep dive into three works from the exhibition: Boulders by Shoog McDaniel, Deep Blue Down by the Wheelchair Highwaymen, and Eve Sonneman’s, Landscape/Cloud, New Mexico. Discussion is encouraged as we explore these unexpected landscapes and brainstorm our own descriptive poems. Interested parties may register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/guided-tour-tickets-114126246676

Then, join us on Saturday, August 1 from 11:00 – 12:00 p.m. for Make it With MoFA: Landscape Collages.

Art Talks Live!! with Elizabeth McFalls – Friday, October 2, – 1-2 PM @ Gadsden Arts Center & Museum
Oct 2 all-day

Elizabeth (Libby) McFalls, the exhibiting artist in the Zoe Golloway Gallery this fall, will give an in-depth talk about her work, a tour of her studio, and answer questions from the Zoom participants. Working in mixed mediums, McFalls creates nonlinear visual narratives that examine issues of loss and family. Her work explores moments that blur the line fact and fiction, life and death, humor and sorrow, moments that demonstrate the contradiction and complexity of life. Elizabeth McFalls is a Professor of Art and the Department of Art’s Art Foundation Coordinator at Columbus State University.
