March 23 from 6:30-7:30pm: Artist Talk w/ Jeremy Jones

Our current show, Capturing Time, features work from artist Jeremy Jones. Jones creates bizarre toylike sculptures that utilize clay, found materials, digital technologies and more. Jones’ sculptures serve to “enshrine the everyday moments of child rearing” that you can’t get back.

Join us on Thursday, March 23, from 6:30 to 7:30pm for a chance to hear Jones talk about his process, inspiration, and answer questions from the community.

While you’re at the gallery, see Jones’ work along with work by other artists.

April 13 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. April’s gathering will focus on Marketing—The discussion and handhouts will help you define your product, discover your target audience, make decisions on where to sell your work and identify your budget and strategy for your artistic business.

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.
