WE ARE NOT RETIRING, WE’RE INSPIRING
At 53, Ms Curtis was laid off from her corporate job and faced a new struggle: companies weren’t into hiring someone her age. Determined to push forward, she knew she wanted to take a stand for “old fogies” like her who were struggling to find work over the age of 50. She opened up Fogue Studios, a supportive space for artists over 50. In just over 2 years Fogue Studios & Gallery has expanded into a 6,000-square-foot art studio and gallery space with 36 artists, a webstore, and has received National exposure and recognition.
Patti is ‘hell bent’ on redefining what it means to be an artist over 50 and taking a flag, planting it firmly into the culture of the radical and initiating the act of awesome aging.
“The future is celebrating our creativity right now by tearing down the rearview mirror and hitting the gas pedal. Our age is just a number and science is proving that your attitudes and beliefs are what determine good health and quality of life.”
Fogue Studios & Gallery (Fogue – a clever take on old fogey), is located in Seattle’s oldest community, Georgetown, Seattle, Washington. In just over 2 years Fogue Studios & Gallery has expanded into a 6,000-square-foot art studio and gallery space with 36 artists, a webstore, and has received National exposure and recognition.
Exhibition closes November 28th.
