Each Thursday evening, the gallery will remain open until 8pm, and a free program will take place! Programs will include book discussions, artist talks, informal make and takes, trunk shows and more. Check back to see the what’s happening each week.
June 1 from 6:30-7:30pm: Artist Talk with Emma Ozark
Our current show, Ozark & Wendland, Two Installations, features work from artist Emma Ozark. Ozark’s short, stop motion film about a ‘not so distant’ dystopian future premiered during this exhibition and is accompanied by 100+ hand-sculpted faces and sets.
Join us on Thursday, June 1, from 6:30 to 7:30pm for a chance to hear Ozark talk about her process, inspiration, and answer questions from the community.
While you’re at the gallery, see Ozark’s work along with work by Lyz Wendland.
June 8 at 6:30: Film Premiere of “Diondra and the Not-So-Distant Future, Chapter 4: Wandering the Wasteland”
Join film maker and artist Emma Ozark for the premiere of Chapter 4 of her stop-action animation short film series, “Diondra and the Not-So-Distant Future.”

June 15 from 6-8pm: Mocktails & Motivation
Come together with fellow artists to learn about business skills that will support your artistic endeavors. The gatherings will encourage conversation around a variety of business topics and will be structured around Springboard for the Arts proven “Work of Art” program. And to ensure there’s some fun involved, seasonal mocktails will enhance your chance to network with fellow artists.
Each month, Mocktails & Motivation discussions will focus on a different business skill: time management, building a portfolio, marketing, pricing, bookkeeping and more. June’s gathering will focus on Pricing. This analytical approach isn’t intended to be the only way to price your work. It’s intended to show you the factors of product production that apply to everything in the marketplace. Once you understand what each of the variables are, you’ll be able to customize a formula that fits your business model.
Discussions will be led by Syndie Sorensen, ArtReach’s program and marketing manager. In addition to her 10+ years of experience in arts administration, Syndie holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.
June 22 from 6:30-7:30pm: Artist Talk with Lyz Wendland
Lyz Wendland’s “Way Back Home” has transformed our light filled gallery into a space of curiosity, connection and observation with large-scale painted panels suspended throughout.
Join us Thursday, June 22, from 6:30 to 7:30pm for a chance to hear Wendland talk about her process, inspiration, and answer questions from the community.
While you’re at the gallery, see Wendland’s work along with work by Emma Ozark in our current show, Ozark & Wendland, Two Installations.
