Join art-based social networking community, Women of Culture, on Thursday April 23rd for a Curator-led virtual gallery visit and intimate talkback with Susan Eley, Founder & Director of Susan Eley Fine Art, and Artist & Curator, James Isherwood to get a behind-the-scenes look at a timely online exhibit and learn more about the pieces, artists, concept & process behind it.

This is a unique opportunity to take a closer look at the current online exhibit, Respite and Renewal: Inside and Out, gaining a better understanding of how gallerists and curators work together to present group shows like this one , whether virtual or in-person. You will learn more about some of the 30 artists featured and have a chance to ask questions of both the Gallery Director and Curator. This is a great session for anyone who:

– is interested in contemporary art

– wants to learn more about the curatorial process

– resonates with the concept of the exhibit

– wants a behind-the-scenes look at running a gallery, particularly during this time of physical distancing

More about the Respite & Renewal Exhibit:

“Our homes are rural, suburban and urban. Time spent in and around them present our daily life patterns while containing greater meaning we often forget. They are places to rest, share and create. We convene with family and friends marking celebrations and engaging our minds. Within these dwellings reliable escape hatches from the world exist in quiet rooms, garages and backyards. The home heeds our call for respite and renewal.

The artworks comprising this exhibition reflect the many desires, feelings and activities in the places we live, both shared and in solitude. They bridge the familiar and ephemeral, reminding us of our reliance on the places we inhabit every day.”
