Bruce Chandler is an artist’s artist. An award-winning painter, muralist, and illustrator. Bruce says she cannot imagine not painting. She works in many mediums and styles. She is also driven to share her knowledge with aspiring artists. She hosted an art show on SCETV for three years, wrote a newspaper column on art, and currently teaches art at her studio in Charlotte and at the Rice Museum in Georgetown, SC. She has also been a successful businesswoman as owner and operator of a retail arts and crafts store and was winner of the Governor’s Award for Small Business Employer of the Year in 1984.
Her presentation is titled “Knowing Yourself as an Artist and Ideas for Marketing.” Addressing being an artist, she will raise such questions as, “Do you know your artist self?” “Are you painting your passion?” and “Are the things that used to inspire you getting worn?” She will cover such topics as researching and designing the painting, redoing the failures, and not being afraid to push beyond one’s own limits.
As for marketing, she asks, “Do you have too many paintings under the bed?” If so, she has examples of how to promote sales of your art. She will also suggest galleries where you can see the kind of art currently being shown.
About the upcoming presentation, Bruce says, “Come on out and answer some of the questions and leave with some new thoughts…Don’t grow stale…Let’s move forward.”
