The Galleries at WORK_SPACE artist videos

Workspace has started a library of artist videos (5-8 minutes) on YouTube that they can share via social media every Friday at noon. They would love a wide-breadth of artists to participate. These videos can consist of anything related to art, the artistic process, and/or the impact art has on us individually and collectively. Artists can take and submit their own video, or Workspace can conduct and record a Zoom call where the artist is interviewed about their work. Their goal is to showcase artistic friends and spark creativity in their audience. If interested, people should reach out via and Shannon, their Gallery Coordinator will provide details and put them on the schedule. See the flyer. The link to view past videos is:

The Galleries at WORK_SPACE Veterans Art of All Kinds

"The Galleries @ WORK_SPACE  are honored to exhibit VETERANS ART OF ALL KINDS, a showcase of the artistic creations of military veterans and their family members (18 years and older). Whether art is a vocation, hobby or therapeutic tool, we value the perspective of our Veterans and their family members. We welcome artists of all backgrounds and levels of proficiency to submit art of all kinds."

"We anticipate opening the weekend of August 21st to coincide with Art Füd’s Silk City Art, Music & Beer Fest, although dates and format remain flexible due to the many unknowns we face in terms of social distancing. Below is our current timeline and we hope to add cultural events, educational workshops and docent led tours both in person and online. We are currently seeking Creative Community Ambassadors to help us implement these ideas and great visitors. We will also be working with the Manchester Elks Lodge to create “Art Packs” so that Veterans can have supplies to create from home."

Details and entry form: The form along with five digital submissions is due on or before Thursday, August 6, 2020.
