March 31 San Francisco Bay Area photographer Cay Lang quotes Mark Rothko in her art-as-a-career book Taking the Leap: "As an artist you have to be a thief and steal a place on a rich man's wall." So how do you get your brilliant work out of your poor friends' bathrooms and into a more worthy hanging place? You learn to think about business as much as brush strokes. Lang's workshop is designed to teach struggling artists about contracts and consignment forms, pricing and press releases, and exhibitions and connections. Follow your passion, but be practical about it. 10 a.m. Fine Arts Auditorium, Houston Community College, 1300 Holman. Call (281)425-6484 for more information. Free.
