Studio of Exhaustion from Diligent Service

The New York Academy of Art is pleased to share a new note by Hilary Harkness! Regularly posting her "Notes from Studio Lockdown," Hilary blogs with us as she prepares for her upcoming exhibition at Mary Boone Gallery in New York City. Follow her on this blog for sneak peeks into her studio!

Dear Friends,
One of the most important things an artist can have is a studio organizational structure that supports your creativity. One of the things that I like best and is important to me is my flat file, and that's because it keeps my color palette, plus all kinds of past reference material and things I can use to spark creativity and provide inspiration when I need it.

Let's look inside my flat file so you can see some of the things I keep here.

Yours very truly,
