Artistic Genealogy: Charting Your Creative Journey

http://www.pittsburghsocietyofartists.org/psa-artisticgenealogy.html

Where does your unique voice come from? How does your artwork connect with your viewers? Could your past hold half-buried clues for a richer creative future?

Join nationally known Atlanta artist Leisa Rich for a transformational workshop -- Artistic Genealogy: Charting Your Creative Journey, co-sponsored by the Pittsburgh Society of Artists and the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh. The workshop will be held at Pittsburgh Filmmakers on September 22 and 23, 2012.

With Leisa's help you'll examine your ancestral, family, health, social, artistic, and technological influences to create a "family tree" of your artistic self. You'll work on your own and with others to heighten your awareness of subtle connections and uncover fruitful directions for future work. According to Rich, the process is an excellent way for artists to get unstuck. Expect thoughtful insights, moments of self-discovery, creative new avenues to pursue, and lots of fun with fellow artists.

Leisa Rich exhibits internationally, nationally, and locally. She has been featured on the PBS special inCONTEXT; in the books NOPLACENESS: Art in a Post-Urban Landscape; Modern Sculpture; The Studio Quilt No. 6: State of the Art; Hand to Hand; Quilt National 2009 and The Best of American Sculpture Artists and Artisans; in Fiberarts magazine, and many other publications. Rich holds Master of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts & Bachelor of Education in Art degrees. Pittsburghers will know her work from Fiberart International 2010 and her appearances at FGP and Society for Contemporary Craft. She recently completed a permanent installation for the Dallas Museum of Art. See more of Leisa Rich's work at www.monaleisa.com.
