Reading Materials, A Book Club Hosted by Textile Arts
March 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Textile Arts | Los Angeles invites you to join READING MATERIALS, a book club with an art and material focus. We will be reading books about the artist’s life, about ways of seeing and reasons for making, and about our inextricable relationship with material. The titles and conversations should appeal to all creatives, regardless of medium. Offered in partnership with Studio203, an art gallery / creative space in Mar Vista, they will gather on Tuesdays at 7pm. Admission free for members; $40 for the public (for the year). Please consider purchasing your books from Arcana: Books on the Arts in Culver City, or your favorite local indie shop, or bookshop.org
On Tuesday March 16th from 7:00 – 8:30pm the book selection is ART & FEAR: OBSERVATIONS ON THE PERILS (AND REWARDS) OF ARTMAKING by Ted Orland, and David Bayles
Art & Fear explores the way art gets made, the reasons it often doesn’t get made, and the nature of the difficulties that cause so many artists to give up along the way. This is an old favorite, and a quick read (and worth re-reading several times).
