The CCCT’s Small Business Committee (SBC) invites you to attend our next presentation and discussion night on Friday, Aug 26th, 2016 at 7:30pm at 1001 Nights Taipei. We have several guest speakers that will be talking about doing art as a business in Taipei. There will be few short presentations for individuals interested in doing art as a business in Taipei. Please join us, learn something, contribute something, and meet some cool people. After presentations from our guest speakers, who are all knowledgeable and successful expat entrepreneurs in the art field, there will be a Q&A and open discussion.
Our guest panel is:
*Patty Hogan, ColorWolfStudio*
Patty has held exhibitions in Chicago, London, Seoul, Fukuoka and Busan. Gaining international attention, she has been interviewed and covered by various magazines, andis as diverse in her style as her appeal.
*Matt King, Crown Ceramics*
Matt is an American ceramic artist whose studio is in Yangmingshan. He received his BFA and MA in ceramics at Minnesota State University, Mankato. I am interested in making works that are inspired from both organic forms and industrial line. I focus on aesthetics of form and exploration in surface treatment.
My functional pieces range in method of construction; wheel-thrown, hand-built, slipcast, jigged and altered… I explore new shapes and currently prefer to make unique one-offs, but still find joy in making series as well. I simply wish to create utilitarian pieces which people enjoy holding and using. I am available for commissioned/large volume work.
*Zachary Widgren, LALA EATS LALA*
An avant-garde underground artist hailing from the Smokey Mountains of Knoxville, Tennessee. His art work is deeply detailed, often involving words, symbols, and other hidden imagery throughout the work.
