EVER WONDER HOW TO ”MAKE IT” AS AN ARTIST? Adults and teens are invited to join us for this lecture series with seven New York City based artists who are “Makin’ it” and are very Art at Work. Each artist will tell you their story, introduce you to their work, and share their secrets to success! Learn about an artist's work both in and beyond the studio from emerging and mid-career artists and designers who are finding success in the ever-changing fields of art and design.

  11/18 ELENA KANAGY-LOUX, textile artist/lacemaker & MARINA PRESS - 1-2:30pm

In 2015, FIT graduate and textile artist Elena Kanagy-Loux won the George T. Dorsch Art Historical Award, enabling her to go on a four-month trip across Europe to study the historical art of lacemaking. Now she is back in NYC, working on a book on her experiences and preparing workshops and lectures about bobbin lacemaking. She is co-founder of the Brooklyn Lace Guild.
