End of the Big Show

Sunday, September 18, 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M., the Anchor House of Artists will host a symposium on the end-of-life concerns for artists; legacy, probate and emotional reckoning. Are these different for artists than people of other trades. Should all the stuff of a studio career be saved? By who? Who gets to tell the story after the artist is gone. A panel including a celebrity photographer, a sculptor cancer survivor, an octogenarian ceramicist, and an expressive therapist will take up the discussion with the audience.

Location: Anchor House of Artists
Street Address: 518 Pleasant Street, Northampton, Massachusetts

Accessible Ground Floor
Phone: (413) 588-4337

The current work in the gallery is by three artists, John Landino, Michael Tillyer and Ben Westbrock, joining in reunion from at time thirty years ago when they were each represented at the WAVE gallery in New Haven Connecticut. This exhibit is up until September 23.
