The Galleries at WORK_SPACE artist videos
Workspace started a library of artist videos (5-8 minutes) on YouTube that they share via social media every Friday at noon. All artists are invited to participate. These videos be anything related to art, the artistic process, and/or the impact art has on artists individually and collectively. Artists can create 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, you can email the gallery for details. See the flyer. Enjoy the past videos!
