What to expect of your first 10 years after art school
From expenses, finding studio space, selling work, and building community, NYC has it all. But, only if you know how to find it. Nicholas Newcomb shares his experiences of establishing himself after school.

About the Artist:
Nicholas Newcomb currently owns his own pottery business in Brooklyn and is the director of Christopher Spitzmiller, Inc. in Midtown Manhattan. Between juggling the 9-5, studio work, and family, Nicholas networks between multiple groups of creatives in alternate fields.

Born in upstate New York, Nicholas developed an interest in the arts and crafts. When selecting an area of study, Nicholas chose to major in studio art with a focus in ceramics at Skidmore College.

After earning his degree, Nicholas worked as an apprentice to renowned ceramicist Toshiko Takaezu, where he developed a strong appreciation for a career in ceramics. After his apprenticeship, Nicholas moved on to teach ceramics to high school students at Millbrook School for four years. Located 90 miles north of New York City, Nicholas set his next move on the big apple.

Moving to New York City posed a number of challenges. Where to find a source of income? Where to make art? How to build a community? Where to exhibit?

After an exhaustive search, Nicholas found a position as a studio assistant to Christopher Spitzmiller. Christopher is known for is high-end ceramic table lamps admired by interior designers far and wide. During his time at Christopher Spitzmiller, Nicholas was promoted through various positions and is currently managing d
Director.

For Nicholas, creating a career in ceramics has been an uphill challenge filled with many learning opportunities and rewards. From developing a body of work, selling through vendors, to building his studio and personal business, Nicholas has seen a lot and loves to share his experiences.

A compilation of work primarily by Isabel Bowser and Kate Schneider that deals with the subject of close friends and interpersonal interactions. It explores the relationships with those people that we share space, time, and ideas with. We describe these moments using primarily photography and video art.

Works range from large-scale, black-and-white photographs to small, informal Polaroids, and video installations. This show addresses intimacy and representation of identity both of the subject and the maker often blurring the line between the two. We want to depict the specificity of creating a certain image of someone and how it is contingent on who is creating it.
