Every week, a new student exhibition opens in the upstairs student gallery. These exhibitions usually feature a pair of students who curate, hang and put on the opening themselves. Past openings have featured bands, DJ’s, and elaborate food spreads. These openings are a time for the community to come together at the end of the week to view and discuss the work being produced in the studios.
This week Karin Malpeso and Lauren Jones displayed their work.
This past Saturday, experienced artists and those new to artmaking came together to draw from the model during the Positively 8th Street Festival. The Festival, put on by the Village Alliance, closed off traffic to allow pedestrians, musicians, poets, and artists to celebrate the beautiful day on our historic strip of 8th street.
Part II of the festival will be this coming Saturday, June 22, from 12-5 PM. We will have charcoal, paper, and easels- but feel free to bring your own supplies and stay as long as you like. More information about the Festival can be found HERE.
