Artists’ Tool Kit

A peek into the inner workings of Howard House

Last time I attended one of the Gage Academy’s Artists’ Tool Kit events, the featured guest was Scott Lawrimore, fielding questions about his not-yet-realized Project. Scott’s previous boss Greg Kucera was in the room, and being there felt like eavesdropping, hearing all the big plans, the whys behind them. The Gage interviewer asked all the right questions, and Lawrimore told all. Held in a classroom space, with one-piece desk/chairs (you know, with the curvy palette-shaped writing surfaces), the mood was casual, intimate, and yes, scholarly. The gallerists were more than willing to share their secrets with hungry students. Today’s guest is Howard House’s Billy Howard, speaking about what he looks for when reviewing an artist for his gallery. Pack a lunch, find out what this top gallery owner expects to see in a portfolio, and pick his brain about what it’s like to run a gallery and how it feels to celebrate Howard House's eleventh year. Gage Academy, 1501 10th Ave. E., Geo Studio, Room 304, 323-GAGE, www.gageacademy.org. Free. 12:30-2 p.m. ADRIANA GRANT
