DNA Diary – Emma’s Dress Painting by Lynn Denton – Philadelphia. We dedicate the opening page of the ACN website to Lynn Denton – a remarkable artist, who began the very first ACN Group on the East Coast 25 years ago this month! Thank you Lynn for always being a shining beacon of possibility for us all and for giving so much of yourself to so many people!


The Artist Conference Network is a non-profit, worldwide community of artists, working in every creative field. We are writers, painters, musicians, filmmakers and much more!

About the Artist

A New Culture for the Arts!

Our founder, Beverly Cassell, was a painter and teacher. She saw that many artists lived and learned their art in a context of critique and isolation. She envisioned a new culture for the arts, one that evoked the field of creative possibility in an atmosphere of mutual respect and camaraderie.

I'm feeling so much tender love and gratitude for you all!

The pandemic is cracking open my hardened heart, like the seed of the great Sequoia, opened only by great heat.
And like the Sequoia, born only after a fire, when new light can reach the forest floor, I am growing something new in myself I have never seen before, resilient and evolving with my new environment and broken open by the love of what was lost.

I say this is a moment of transformation.

This is a moment of systemic breakdown, and we are well practiced in coaching each other to breakthroughs.

It's a time for remembering the stories of Fernando Flores and Victor Frankel: Under any circumstances, we choose who we are being.

Feel free to reach out to me if you need to coach, and consider ramping up your coaching within your group. Also, offer this coaching to others who may desperately need a shift in their way of being. You all have a resource essential to this time, thanks to Beverly Cassell and those who have carried her work onward.

May you and all you love be well!
