We had so much fun, we are going to do it again!

Sunday June 11th at 10am PST
Open internationally

FREE to sign up!!

Share your studio or artwork for aprox. 5 minutes over several rounds with other artists.

So far everyone who has done this has loved it. It is inspiring and empowering and connections and collaborations are already being planned!! YAY!!!

This is a great way to get your work out there, get experience talking about your art and meeting new artists.

This will take place on zoom and you will be put into breakout rooms randomly for about 10 minutes at a time. I will give a warning in which you will stop and switch.

You can prepare by showing a PDF, powerpoint, keynote or real time work. You will have access to share your screen if needed. This is great practice for professional presentations and learning to talk about your work.

Be sure to have your website, instagram, email info ready to share with the other artists so you can follow each other.

FYI this is going to be a regular event every 4-6 weeks. Look forward to seeing you soon!!


Text/Message ONLINE exhibition with Shoebox Projects

Text/Message focuses on how we use text in fine art. Whether painting, sculpture, mixed media, video, digital, the use of text plays an integral part in telling stories. It can add a poetic layer, or a humorous anecdote. Text can challenge societal assumptions, activate our inner desires or crusade for long held beliefs. Text also lies.

How do you use text in your artwork? We want to see!!
