THE ART OF BEING AN ARTIST
January 8 - February 16, 2019

We kick off the new year featuring mid-career artists Pete Goldlust and Kristy Kún with an exhibit that is a capstone for the pilot year for our professional development Artist Accelerator Program (AAP). Goldlust and Kún have traveled very different paths to reach this stage in their careers. Their creativity extends beyond the artwork they produce to include the means with which they have crafted their careers. Thanks to grant support from The Ford Family Foundation, a catalog about their work and careers is in production.

The Corrine Woodman Galleries will feature new work by Tara Robinson, Justin Lodge, Peer Mentor Claire Elam, and Kimberly Long created during their four-months as Artists in Residence at The Arts Center.
