Past and Present K Space Studio Artists

25th Anniversary Exhibition Information for Participants

Everything is still ON!  We are going forward with the exhibition, ArtWalk opening, and an after-party in the studios. We will wear masks, practice social distancing, and limit number of visitors in the gallery. Plus, we have hand sanitizer sitting everywhere.  The after-party is open only to current and former K Space artists and their significant others (no general public).

New Development: We are now working with La Palmera Mall to exhibit art in an empty store converted into a gallery. I have asked them if we can show the 25th Anniversary show there after it comes down. If they approve (and you are fine with it), we would show your work for an additional two months at the mall. I will be in touch with further details as they become available.

 

Labeling: We’d like to place a “Where art they now?” label with your work. Below, I’m attaching a link to a Google Form where you can put a few lines about yourself and the label information for your work. Please write your short bio in third person and limit your info to 250 words or less.

25-day Art Challenge for the 25th Anniversary of KSAS: Another Part of this event is an art challenge on our Education page @KSpaceArtLab on Instagram. On @KSpaceArtLab, we post daily art-making prompts and our artists/instructors do live lessons and demos. (Check it out to see what we’ve been doing.) We are doing a “25-day Art Challenge for to celebrate 25 years of K Space Art Studios” Nov. 29 – Dec. 23.  We invite you to teach a Live Lesson or Demo for the Art Lab. If you’d like to do an LIVE, you can indicate your lesson idea and a Word Prompt that goes along with it in the Google Form. We pay each artist who does a Live $50 for a 30-minute lesson/demo. You can do any art process that you wish, something that speaks to teens and adults. Just keep the presentation clean (no cussing or profane clothing). This is a multi-level Art Education project and many of our followers are our Mural Arts teens. We will send detailed instructions and Lori Edwards will be available to help you through it.
