Not so easy keeping up with this week’s guest curator, Rebecca Gates. But fun? You bet.

Nathan Quigley / Oregon Public Broadcasting

First, there’s her recording career, both in the Spinanes and as a solo artist. (if you haven’t checked out 2012’s The Float, you need to do that)

A few years ago, she began a journey into music advocacy, exploring revenue for artists and other messy areas of the post-milennial music industry. She also has a foot in the contemporary art world, through her consulting work and practice in sonic art.

This week she’s bring us some perspective on 

  • The economic realities of music revenue
  • How art fairs are changing the game for gallerists and artists
  • Building a creative life around community

…and more. If you’re angling for a preview, and can make it into town, you can catch her lecture at PNCA Thursday night.
