When are you going to get a real job?
By Bruce Museum

When are you going to get a real job?

Tuesday, July 20, 2021 — 7:00pm - 8:30pm

When are you going to get a real job? Persevering and pursuing a career as an artist.

Bruce Museum's annual exhibition iCreate serves as an outlet for emerging artists, amplifying the scope of their pieces' influence and providing the community a glimpse into local artistic potential and talent.​

This panel discussion with iCreate Alumni, teachers, and established artists will share information, resources, and strategies for participants to understand better how they might pursue their interests in the arts as a viable career path. We will discuss experiences, advice, pitfalls, optimism, and get real about what's going on in the art world.

Willie Gary is an iCreate alumnus, artist and musician. Currently attending Bard college, he works primarily in oil pastel, charcoal, and mixed media. His work has been exhibited in galleries such as MomaPS1. - on instagram at @william_gary

Langford is an iCreate alumnus and received a BFA in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2014.

His work investigates the relationship between nature and their representation through photography and sculpture, with a concentration on flowers in various states of decomposition, gardens, and natural environments.

She has been featured in a number of exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad and has been the recipient of a number of art related awards, including most recently AXA Art Prize Finalist.

Luke Whittaker (thelukewhittaker.com) is an emerging artist currently living and working in Providence, Rhode Island with a studio at the Nicholson File Company Art Studios. He obsesses over figuration in everyday experiences, capturing a feeling, moment, position or scene. The goal of his work is to pull the physical body out of the mediums he uses. Attempting to extract and reveal the body that resides underneath the surface of the canvas becomes a dance between his own figure and that of the painting. In order to expose the figure, he is constantly moving back and forth between materials ranging from classic charcoal and graphite to photoshop and illustrator. His physical paintings and drawings always find a new life through the digital collages he creates from photographs of them.

Born in Toronto, Canada, Luke attended Darien High School, graduating in 2016, then went on to graduate, with honors, from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in painting. During his senior year he participated in RISD’s European Honors Program in Rome, Italy. Luke has pieces in collections as far afield as Canada and Sweden. He recently co-curated a physical and virtual art show at Machines with Magnets in Pawtucket, RI.
