There are many events coming up soon that explore the depths of painting and technology and celebrate practices from artists all over. Our goal is to share these artists with you in the hopes that you are able to find a connection and interest through their use of visual language. We cherish the relationships we’ve built with artists through interviews and news and want to share this opportunity with you to explore the art world through these events. And who knows, maybe you need an excuse to get out of your regular routine, and this is the time to do it!
