    Living the Art Life

    Living the Art Life

    Welcome to this week’s episode of Art Is... a podcast for artists where Odette Brady, a fiction writer, introduces us to her work and her Art Residency program. Every artist has a unique creative process, but each process inevitably includes self-doubt and constructive criticism. Odette explains how it’s important to accept the work and the outcome for what it is and continue forward.

    Cel del Nord, Odette’s Artist in Residency program, is designed to do just that. It’s an escape from everyday life to give artists a temporary reality where they can fully dive into their craft. What started as an antique beautiful building in a small village north of Barcelona has been transformed into a creative safe haven both online and in situ. Odette shares how she balances creative work with daily life and explains her interest in the inclusion offered by the digital world.

    Join Isotta on her first ever in person podcast with Odette Brady recorded during Isotta’s stay at the Cel del Nord Art Residency.

    Art Work Is Real Work

    Art Work Is Real Work

    Episode 18: Welcome to this week’s episode of Art Is... a podcast for artists where Susan Hensel, a multidisciplinary artist with a current interest in digital textiles, shares wisdom from a 50+ year career as an artist. 

    “Art belongs everywhere,” Susan says and as an emerging artist, creating your own opportunities is your livelihood. Find your market, find your mentors and critique groups, stretch yourself further, and take yourself seriously. Ask yourself: where should my art live? Does it belong in a white cube or in a lively coffee shop? Susan dives into the importance of having mentors to learn from and critique groups to help you improve your craft. She shares personal experiences mentoring and being mentored, explaining her approach to teaching, goal setting and how she first went about setting her prices. Susan is also a gallerist and also has worked with galleries and museums so her insights and experiences are excellent food for thought. 

    Susan is a talented artist, lifelong learner and inspiration to all artists. 
    Join Isotta on today’s episode as Susan Hensel uncovers who the modern-day shaman is and how to operate at full production to get the most out of your art workday.

    Topics Covered:
    Creating your own opportunities to exhibit and share your work with the world Learning more about art economics, deconstructing the notion of art being a luxury commodity and asset classMentorship: stories of being a mentor and getting mentorship Art Work is Real Work: showing up in the studio wherever that may be (kitchen counter or NYC industrial loft) Experience with critique groups out of art schoolInsights on art pricing and getting to the numberThings to do and not to do as an artist to maintain work-life balance

    Navigating Instagram & Pricing Your Art

    Navigating Instagram & Pricing Your Art

    Episode 17: Welcome to this week’s episode of Art Is... a podcast for artists. In this 2nd part of Isotta’s conversation with Gisela A. Lazarate, a Venezuelan abstract painter based in NYC, Gisela shares her advice on utilizing social media, pushing your boundaries, and attaching a price to your artwork early on. 

    Social media opens the door to both positive and negative influences. To get the most out of the social experience, to reach a wider audience and connect with them directly, find what you’re comfortable with sharing and put more of it out there. Take breaks often and try scheduling posts in advance. 

    For Gisela, her largest goal in the art business is to keep pushing her boundaries, stay independent, and participate in more residencies to get the most out of experiencing art in person. Her hope for the art world is for all artists to have more control over their careers and for more collaborative relationships among artists to be born. 

    Join Isotta on today’s episode as Gisela breaks down how to attach a price to your artwork and why it is so important to think about it in the early stages of the creative process.

Heard about this podcast through another art podcast I follow. Many of these conversation podcasts can feel too open ended or directionless. But the host asks great questions and the production keeps it accessible and very interesting. Highly recommended.
