We’re back with another PD talk held a few months ago at our cross-province Annual General Meeting. Tune in to hear Edmonton artist and business owner Kim Fjordbotten explain the connection between the art world and business world in this fantastic recording. As she puts it “let’s discuss the keys to building a new economy for visual artists.”
Kim Fjordbotten has been active in Edmonton’s art community for many years now. She owns The Paint Spot and produces The Whyte Avenue Art Walk every year, while still finding time to teach art classes to the Edmonton community.
This episode was recorded and edited by Graeme Dearden.
Additional support provided by Sara McKarney and Chris Carson.
The original talk was given at the Northern Jubilee Auditorium with a video link to Southern Jubilee Auditorium.

Do you have a tattoo?
Does your tattoo have an interesting story behind it or was inspired by something special? Does it represent a significant time in your life?

Through photography, Tattoo Speak will capture the deeply personal stories behind these beautiful pieces of body art while deconstructing the negative stereotypes associated with them. The project by Karue Wachira, an Alberta photographer, will take place over the next year.

Reception: Thursday October 24 from 7 – 9:30pm.

Keith Harder’s art practice began in the highly developed art program at Three Hills High School and developed at the University of Calgary, the Alberta College of Art, and the University of Alberta.
He taught at the Universities of Alberta and Calgary before locating to Camrose in 1992 and is currently a professor at the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta.
While his reputation in the art world has been based on a descriptive approach to painting and drawing, recent work has diverged to embrace other practices, including photography, sculpture and landscape installation.
The Paint Spot, Edmonton would like to extend an invitation to your organization, club, society, school or association to make use of the many exhibition opportunities we offer to members of the Alberta art community.
We encourage individuals and curators, particularly those who are emerging, as well as groups, to make exhibition proposals to our galleries: Naess, Gallery, Artisan Nook, and the Vertical Space.
