Social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr, are useful promotional tools for artists but can also offer a vital environment to explore art, events and artists and thereby benefit one's own artistic practice. Featuring artists who have mined social media to enrich their own artistic development, the discussion will address specific websites and blogs that cover the vast online art world, strategies for developing a personal image library as a source of inspiration, and the potential for social media to serve as both an artistic platform and means to engage with other artists in the age of digital.

The discussion will be facilitated by artist Melissa Capasso. A graduate of NYU, Melissa has studied painting and art history in Florence, Italy; Provincetown, MA; and Santa Fe, NM.

This event has been made possible by the Park Slope Parents Visual Artists group. The PSP Visual Artists was founded two years ago as a way for local artists to meet with and support each other. We hold events related to the challenge of balancing family and creative life, setting goals and professional development, studio visits, and more.

 440 Gallery is located at 440 6th Avenue, Park Slope.  For more information visit
