Thank you to MARN for the incredible opportunity to share my and our experiences in the MARN Salon Conversations. I had the great opportunity to see this show of incredible artists in late September. Please make sure you get to the show this weekend (November 15 and 16, 2021) for MKE Gallery Night and Day.
“C is for Conversation: how conversations between the artists and critics affected the creative processes” is the 2021 MARNsalons Final Exhibition running September 24 – Nov 2, 2021 within the MARN ART + CULTURE HUB. The exhibition features the work of artists who participated in the 2021 MARNsalons Program and members of the 2021 MARNsalons Advisory Committee. The 10 Salon Program Artists engaged in deep conversations and exchanged ideas with 3 local and 3 national critics during virtual studio/workspace visits from February to June, 2021. Majority of work featured in the exhibition was created after the conclusion of the artists and critics dialogues. Exhibiting artists include Katie Avila Loughmiller, Deborah Brooks, Alexa Hollywood, Carley Knight, Frank Korb, Lennis Mathews, Meghan McGrath, Reid Sancken, Francesca Simonite, Katherine Steichen Rosing, Valaria Tatera, and Marian JA Vieux.
