Hello all! This is a short entry, to ask for your help.
I will be starting a new feature on the blog called “Ask an Artist” soon. This is an opportunity for you to ask any question you want of artists from any field. Would you like to know how to get started as a film actor? Do you wonder how much of the money you pay a gallery for a piece of art actually goes to the visual artist? Have you wondered whether a dancer gets sore the next morning after a performance (and if not, what is their secret)? Now is the time to ask! No question too weird, and there are no stupid questions.
I am currently working on lining up local, regional, national and international experts in the field of dance, film and theater, visual art and music to answer your questions. The main requirement (other than knowledge in their field) is that they answer as thoroughly and respectfully as they can. Who knows, you may even have your question answered by someone famous. So fire away!
You may remain anonymous, go by a nickname (think “Sleepless in Seattle”) or use your real name when submitting your questions. Be sure to let me know what area of the arts you are addressing … is your question for a ballerina? A hip-hop dancer? A lighting director for stage plays?
Once you know what you want to ask, send your questions to Amy Buchheit at firstname.lastname@example.org (under the subject line “Ask an Artist”) or to P.O. Box 873112, Vancouver, WA 98687-3112.
I look forward to hearing your questions and linking up experts who can answer them specifically. In the meantime, I suggest subscribing to this blog so you can be alert to when the next entry of “Ask the Artist” is posted. We will get to your questions as soon as possible! 🙂
