Peter Clothier @ Artillery Magazine Art Series at the Standard Hotel
Peter Clothier Reads at the Standard by Paige Wery's Torchlight (March 23, 2010)
Artillery Magazine hosted an intimate event with art writer Peter Clothier last night at the Standard Hotel in Hollywood.
Peter began the evening by reading a bit from his new book Persist and then in an honest vulnerability spoke of his personal and artistic challenges to a supportive audience. Peter encouraged the group to face the inhibiting lies that keep us from reaching our full potential in art and life. Peter explained that his personal lie began at his birth when he was delivered with an umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. A skilled, quick thinking nurse cut the cord but Peter spent much of his life held back by the illusion that "I shouldn't be here. I shouldn't be alive." Peter Clothier has left that illusion behind. In Persist and on his continuing book tour, Peter provides vital clues and encouragement learned through meditation and community to his readers.
Congrats to Peter Clothier and to Artillery Magazine publisher Paige Wery for an important event.
