For Art Base members, these invite-only events present a unique opportunity to meet the artists in an intimate setting and have a glimpse into their creative mind. Join us as we learn about each artists’ art-making techniques and inspirations. We encourage guests to and ask questions about the artists’ work and process.

Art talks are appropriate for the whole family. The Colorado Creative industries explain that visual and verbal literacy are developed through active experiences with the visual arts that include questioning and dialogue, what it often called “Art Talk.”

Past art talk topics have included: printmaking demonstrations, gallery Q&As, healing with color, the business of art, women in art, and art and education.

HOME: UN HOGAR—Meet the Artists!

Friday, November 9, 5:30pm at the Charles J. Wyly Gallery

The students participating in this mural project are enrolled in the English Language Development program at Basalt High School taught by Leticia Guzman Ingram. Most of the students, aged 14-18, arrived in the United States in the last few months— often after grueling journeys—and are just beginning to learn English and acclimate to life in Colorado. This is their first art class ever. Join us as some of these students share their personal poems created with Art Base Youth Programs Manager Abby Gierke and artist MYXZ during this project.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by Susan and Larry Marx.
