I'm delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!
If you do not see the podcast player above, please click on this link. You can listen to a podcast anywhere and at any time. It is a recording that is available to you whenever you'd like to listen. If you'd like to download it to your iTunes library, click here. You can also pause and rewind or fast forward as you desire. I like to listen to podcasts while I'm making art. It's a little like hanging out with friends while you art.
We have two guests today, Anna Chiang and Barbara Briskin:
Barbara (on the left) is the long-time store manager of The Ink Pad, a rubber stamp store in NYC. Anna (on the right) is the store owner. You can read all about the store in this article from The New York Times.
Here is a peek at some of Barbara's artwork:
And this is Anna's artwork:
And finally, here are some photos they sent me of classes at The Ink Pad's weekend classroom space: The Westbeth Community Center.
If classes at The Ink Pad at Westbeth look like awesome fun to you, a quick reminder that I am teaching two classes there in September.
On the podcast we discuss art & eye diseases - specifically cataracts, how Anna and Barbara met, current trends in the mixed media/craft/rubber stamping world, how they choose product for the store, whether owning/running a store kills your desire to create, and so much more! We hope you'll add your voice to the conversation by leaving a comment or a question!
