CURRENT EXHIBITION

REINA KATZENBERGER

ART IN PROCESS

11 January – 4 February 2022

 

 

Art in Process is a 3-week study of art making in the public eye through conversation and collaboration with artist, Reina Katzenberger.

Reina is hosting an installation/residency that has been designed to celebrate art as process and connection. This on-site active artist studio is a window into the process of creating art as conversation and creative problem solving in real-time.  This is an opportunity to marry the exhibition and educational programming central to the mission of the Art Base.

For these weeks, the sidewalk-visible gallery will become a space for a pop-up artist residency that includes the physical manifestation of a studio with materials, equipment and ephemera, made accessible to the public. This active artist space will be documented by a Live Stream webcam of the main work table.

Reina’s time will be totally open and unscripted as she aims to surrender each day to being informed by the circumstance and interactions that occur on site. Whatever art is created will arise from the interactions, ideas and conversations that ensue. Collaboration between nonprofits, art institutions and artists in our valley is a core tenet of The Project Shop. The Project Shop is a creative space at SAW in Carbondale of which Reina is the creator and founder that focuses primarily on arts education through service-learning based print projects. We invite you to participate in the process, to converse and collaborate.

Public participation will vary from simply witnessing the studio to actively engaging in a creative process.  These interactions will be unpredictable and challenge both artist and visitor to earnestly engage in art-making as process—with the focus not on a final

to explore and celebrate the inextricable connection between all things—everything is informed by everything else—using mixed media printmaking to illustrate and enhance these conversations.

At the closing party, February 4th from 5—7PM, the limited edition prints and exhibition posters will be available for sale.

THE ART BASE GALLERY SPACE

The Art Base exhibition program focuses on opportunities for solo, group, and guest-curated exhibitions for Colorado-based artists, with an emphasis on those living in the Roaring Fork Valley. Artists selected by our Exhibitions Committee can be at any stage of their careers. We strive to achieve diversity in topics and media, and we give preference to proposals of recent or new work that has not been previously exhibited in the Valley.
