Artlink 2019 Artist Apprenticeship Exhibition

Artlink, Creative Clay’s mentoring program, will exhibit a body of work at St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts. Artist reception is open to the public. Art teams will be on hand, and “Airlift,” directed by Sheila Cowley, will be performed.

Artlink is Creative Clay’s apprenticeship program that pairs artists from the community with Creative Clay member artists for six months to produce art in a variety of mediums. Teams have collaborated, shared ideas, experimented and mastered artistic skills. Artist mentors also have shared the important skills of the business of art, how to create and sustain successful careers as working artists.

This exhibit is the culmination of months of work that has produced art in all mediums. Creative Clay and the Artlink teams also collaborated with local playwright Sheila Cowley to produce “Airlift,” a 10-minute production that tells the story about a girl who is a very law-abiding citizen, except when it comes to the law of gravity. Creative Clay member artists created set design and moving set.

The unique pairing of professionals and students was birthed in 1999 to give student artists with a disability the opportunity to work one-on-one with professional artists in the community. Participants are chosen based on their medium of concentration, skill level, experience, and demonstrated enthusiasm for the project. Artlink is funded through a grant from National Endowment for the Arts and is one of Creative Clay’s seven programs that create arts accessibility for individuals with neuro-differences. This event is free, and refreshments will be served.


Admission is free.
