On Thursday December 10, at 7PM Photographer Amy Eckert will be giving a lecture at the Mpls Photo Center “Writing an Artist Statement in 250 Words or Less”

From the announcement:

In Amy’s own words: “The ability to write clearly about one’s work is an essential skill for every artist, and an important ingredient for artistic and professional growth. This informative and participatory lecture will inspire you to find or improve your ability to communicate what your work is about. We will look at the work of other artists and examine how they write about their own work, as well as review the essentials to every good artist statement.”

Her work has been included in several Photo District News Photo Annuals, and in group shows at the powerHouse Arena and the DUMBO Arts Festival (Brooklyn), as well as the Museum of Fine Arts, (Houston).
