Three to four times a year SPNN invites 3 artists into the studio to talk about their work. Each artist panel has a theme that connects the artists. The artists on the panel range from emerging to mid career. The panel is open to the community, is recorded and shared via our channels and YouTube.
The event starts in our gallery. Artists showcase their work while the community walks around and talks with and experiences the art. We have one or two hosts that ask the artists questions and leave time for the audience to also ask questions. Artists talk about how they got started in their filed, their journey, their work, what inspires them, and why they create their work.
We offer light refreshments during the gallery showcase.
These talks are free and open to the public. They happen through out the year and are listed on our Events calendar when they are scheduled.
