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:
