FRIENDSHIP DAY: Albany Carroll Arts Building, May 29

Make a day of it with your friend and visit the Garfield Park Conservatory, lunch at Inspiration Kitchens and then join Art Encounter to meet several artists involved in different artistic processes in a large studio building.  We’ll begin at the studio of Sharon Bladholm who explores the natural world and the human condition in glass, bronze and ceramic sculpture.  The artist will share her process of beginning with simple materials and talk about how her experiences living in Latin American jungles influenced her art.  Then see work by Philip Livingston, a designer and sculptor with ties to theatre and architecture. The artist creates wooden sculptural forms on which he then paints ethereal images.

We’ll visit an additional studio TBA.  Lunch not included
