1. What is one thing you want others to know about you?
Hmmm, I'm really shy, DEATHLY shy!
2. Where do you get the inspiration for your " characters"
Everything, spoiler alert...you will see this answer used a second time in this interview.
3. When did you discover screen printing? Why do you like it?
Gig posters sparked my fascination with screen printing many years ago, but I have only been hands on with it for a few years. The small ink bleeds, the screen clogging, tiny "flaws" make each print unique and keep me enamored with the process.
4. What type of music do you listen to when you are creating art and why?
My go to current playlist of artist that I listen to while I'm actually physically doing my screen printing includes but definitely not limited to Grimes, Purity Ring, and as of lately a lot of Lana Del Rey. Music for me is just that cherry on top for me to enjoy when performing my printing rituals. My prints then get named after certain tracks that played while they were being made, in an attempt to capture and hold onto some piece of the process that occurred in that moment.
5. Who or what inspires you to create art?
Everything, as cliche as that sounds but I'm going to go with that.
We are beginning to plan our very first pop up show! Stay tuned ..........
We have decided on our exhibit schedule! Stay up to date on when Receptions and artists talks will be taking place by clicking on the exhibits tab. You will be able to access Gallery 24's calendar.
We are excited to announce that we will be showcasing the cooperative's work in Big Brad's for Art Blitz 2015 (June 20th 3-11 pm)!!!!!!!!! We will also have an info table up in The Creative Salon's parking lot to spread the word about Gallery 24. Stop by and learn more about us :)
We are officially becoming a cooperative! I am so excited to begin this new chapter in the book that is the "Arts Community" of Rochester. Our new spot will be in the new Forager Brewery/Kutzky Market. So many things are happening and I am proud to say that I am involved with such a great group of creatives.
