Waterstone Gallery artists Stephen Adams, Shawn Demarest, Sue-Del McCulloch, and Martha Pfanschmidt will participate in a panel discussion covering a wide range of topics involved when commissioning an artist to create an artwork. These topics include the creative process, communication, contracts, expectations, stages of approval, deadlines, and approval of final artwork. Examples of past public and private commissions will be shared, as well as issues that arose during the completion of those projects.


This is the fourth installment of PADA's Art Conversations 2018, a monthly series of gallery talks focused on art collecting and the arts ecology of our city.
