Louden to share importance of working in varied media

Call Sharon Louden an artist. She makes prints, large installation pieces and sculptures and has received commissions for public art. Louden also paints, draws and has organized a screening at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., featuring abstract animation and film from 1970 to today. Her latest animation — she scans her brush strokes into a computer and her colleague Brian Clyne helps fabricate the animation in programs such as After Effects or Flash — will premiere at the National Gallery in September.

“I’m 49 years old and it took me almost 30 years to get that out of my system,” Louden said, “the idea that I had to identify as a [certain] type of artist.”

When Lois Jubeck first came to Chautauqua to start her job as managing director of the visual arts programs, she spent the 13-hour car ride lying in the back of a station wagon.

She had given birth to her first child 10 days earlier, and she wasn’t feeling well. But her husband, artistic director Don Kimes, had to be at Chautauqua to start his job, so she loaded the baby into a car seat, the family’s belongings into a U-Haul and got in for the ride.
