It is both an addictive and therapeutic process—probably one of the main reasons why artists love making and continue to make art. Many artists dream of "making it"; especially, in New York. However, the life of an artist is seldom easy or glamorous. In order to make ends meet, most artists have to find side jobs and other forms of income to support themselves.
Many, who are not artists, might ask, "why suffer?" or "why continue to do something that is not able to provide a living?" Answers to these questions reside in the actual art making and creative processes. Acts of making and creation function cyclically: during acts of creation and making, artists feel most rewarded and satisfied; they are then motivated to continue creating.
In this vein, the show focuses on the creative and making processes. Throughout the month, participating artists will take turns creating work at a table set up in the middle of the space. Each artist, skilled in different crafts and interested in different media, will offer a unique window into a different process.
Take the Fantasy Pill--stop by during open hours, to observe the artists in their natural habitat, the creative process.
