Artists in Conversation
We welcome artists and designers at any career stage to come together in-person for informal discussions with fellow artists about works on view in the galleries. Get to know other local makers in a supportive environment.
Led by artist-facilitator Olivia Baldwin, the session will focus on responding to found and recycled material and remnants of past work. Guided by discussion and close looking, the conversation will consider how these materials and their various histories inform both the making and the meaning of the resulting work. Together, we will explore materiality and sustainability in contemporary practice, as illuminated by the current exhibitions.
