Under the Influence

Curated by Edra Soto
Feb 22 to Mar 23, 2018

Opening reception: Thursday, February 22, 5-7 pm

This exhibition explores the work of artists who also work as art educators and their various sources of inspiration. While teaching full-time, part-time or freelancing, the experience of teaching or leading through education, positions individuals to sharing concepts and skills. Pedagogical studies often provide information on how an education lead by a practicing artist can be of positive influence to an art student.

This exhibition will raise questions such as how a professional artist is impacted by their student’s work, as well as how a student’s work filters into the artist’s professional practice.
