Susan Hensel: Productivity in the Studio
Time & Location
About the Event
Do you want to increase productivity in your studio? We'll hear from Susan how to keep it together and get it out the studio door. First and foremost: show up, make a mark, make another mark. It's not a matter of waiting for inspiration. Inspiration will find us in the act of working. In working and playing with our materials routinely, new ideas will pop-up. Susan will encourage us through a presentation including order/chaos, anxiety/perfectionism, self-care, and more.
Susan Hensel is a Minneapolis artist who received her BFA from University of Michigan in 1972 with a double major in painting and sculpture and a concentration in ceramics.
With a history, to date, of well over 200 exhibitions, 35 of them solo, twenty garnering awards, Hensel's desire to communicate ideas through art continues to be a powerful motivator.
Hensel's artwork is known and collected nationwide, represented in collecting libraries and museums as disparate as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and The Getty Research Institute with major holdings at Minnesota Center for Book Arts, University of Washington, Baylor University and University of Colorado at Boulder.
In recent years Hensel has been awarded multiple grants and residencies through the Jerome Foundation, Minnesota State Arts Board, and Ragdale Foundation.
Hensel's curatorial work began in 2000 and she has curated over seventy exhibitions of emerging and mid-career artists from all over the United States and Canada.
