Please join us for a “behind the scenes” and a fascinating discussion with artist Joe Paquet.

Is popularity the new success? With the withering onslaught of outside voices and social media how does one carve out a path to organic and sustained growth as an artist? Joe will address the issues of external vs internal motivation, self-trust, defining a personal vision and a great deal more.

This talk aims to speak to anyone involved in the creative endeavor.

Introduction by Liz Beard.

For those who can’t make it, this event will be recorded and posted on Salmagundi’s Youtube channel for viewing.

Joseph Paquet attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and credits artist-instructors John Foote, David Palladini, James McMullan with inspiring his deep love of drawing.

Later he studied with John Phillip Osborne in Ridgewood New Jersey and was introduced to the Prismatic Palette. Joe states, “John opened a new world for me and set me on a path to painting outdoors – it was incredibly life changing.”

Joe was the subject of the October 1995 Washington Post Sunday Magazine feature article. He’s also been featured in the March 2004 issue of American Artist magazine and the July 2005 issue of PleinAir magazine.

Paquet is a member of both the Salmagundi Club and California Art Club and is an emeritus member of the Plein Air Painters of America.
