Thursday night, August 20, three artists and one online-gallery curator, all of whom have found success in the world of art, will share their thoughts in a panel discussion moderated by Lynn Basa, Chicago artist and author of “The Artist’s Guide to Public Art: How to Find and Win Commissions.” Online-gallery curator Nikko Moy and artists Chad Kouri, of The Post Family, and Lee Tracy will discuss the importance of “bricks and mortars galleries” in addition to the use of the Internet for artists to showcase their work. The idea came to Basa around March. Her gallery had just closed and she was talking to Tracy who was “so enthusiastic and inspiring.” From there, she connected with Kouri and then Moy, who she already knew from searching for places to sell her work. “One thing led to another and before we knew it, we had a panel,” she says. “I’m motivated to dispel the myth of the starving artist,” Basa says. “They can make a living doing what they love. There’s a ton of money out there.” The discussion is at 6pm at the Chicago Cultural Center.
