WHEN: Sunday, March 18 | 4:00PM WHO: Small Alison - to look/play age 8-12, Alison Bechdel as a child; precocious and opinionated; on the cusp of finding herself and forming her own views on how a girl her age should behave and dress; confident and intelligent; strong singer who can move seamlessly in vocal quality from speech to song, natural sound, B to B. Christian Bechdel - to look/play age 10-15, Alison’s older brother; oldest of the three children; strives to be the leader, but is sometimes overshadowed by Alison’s strong personality; seeking a singer (pre-pubescent/voice unchanged) with a natural sound, good sense of harmony and pitch. John Bechdel - to play/look age 6-10, Alison’s younger brother; like most boys his age, he is full of energy with a quirky imagination; looks up to his siblings; seeking a singer with a natural sound, good sense of harmony and pitch.

Artist Call: Artists' Studios at Artspace 2018
Artspace Shreveport – Most Artists “live their work,” but we all need balance in our lives—a LITTLE SPACE or separation between work and all the rest. An Artists’ studio is where the magic happens--the conjuring place for new Art. During APRIL, the Shreveport Regional Arts Council (SRAC) is awarding Northwest Louisiana artists another opportunity to create their own studio space in artspace to create, work, demonstrate and SELL their art to the public. But why does SRAC feel such a need to facilitate this juncture in the advancement of Northwest Louisiana’s Professional Arts Community? “There is a need for piloting Artist Studios in Northwest Louisiana to understand the level to which they will serve as the backbone for the continued commitment to Authenticity, Community, Creativity and Sustainability in the development of Shreveport Common,” explained Pam Atchison, SRAC Executive Director. “SRAC has awarded NWLA Professional Artists the opportunity to design their own Studio Space at artspace to give them an idea of what it takes to operate and manage a Studio on a daily basis and to give the public an opportunity to experience what happens in an Artist Studio. artspace is the perfect location for the Artist Studios because its mission from the outset has been to support the creation, exhibition and presentation of all Arts,” added Atchison. Though some might argue artists do not “need” a studio, for many it affirms and confirms that they are a Professional Artist. It is uplifting in a psychological way. And to your public and the community, Artists Studios say that we are truly an Art Community—a place where people will travel to see Art and where the economy is bolstered by the revenue that Art and Art Events produce. If we value art, we must value our Artists. SRAC hopes that by awarding these Artist Studios @ artspace, they will be raising the community's awareness of artists’ work space as an important element in thee continued development of the Arts neighborhood of Shreveport Common.
