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 Gabrielle Banks, the workshop will include guided conversations, close looking, and exercises for reflection to explore processes of translation, conversion, and reclamation of imagery. Together, we will explore and discuss artistic choices, art historical references, and contemporary exhibition themes.
