Paintings, poems, plays, and movies — it’s just another day at White Hall Studios, an eclectic commune of young artists and bohemians alike. Painter Joel Mallon and his eager band of friends are out to put themselves and their studio on the map. But just how long can an artist get rejected, overlooked, and written off before his “big break” comes? It’s at a time like this, when nothing seems to be going his way, that Joel thinks he’s hit a creative wall. That is, until a muse arrives in the form of his friend’s free-spirited sister Megan. Joel suddenly becomes possessed by an artistic fire, and an innocent conversation about how artists only get famous after they’re dead really makes him think … The regulars of White Hall soon learn that the effects of suicide travel far beyond the fate of one angst-ridden individual. Art of Suicide examines the delicacy of relationships and the challenges faced by the wannabe working artist. How far are you willing to go to promote yourself? Where do you draw the line?
