Red Brick Center for the Arts will spotlight works by resident artists
The Red Brick Center for the Arts will show resident artists' new creations in an exhibition that opens this week.
The pieces — paintings, photographs, jewelry and ceramic works — are already on display for those want to get a sneak peek.
The opening reception will take place Thursday, when the artists and community members can mingle with one another.
Sarah Roy, executive director of the Red Brick, said helping artists connect is a big focus for the arts center.
“Artists just enjoy talking,” she said. “You need that as part of your creative practice, that you're able to talk with each other and … share those ideas and exchange those ideas among each other.”
Roy said this exhibit is a celebration of the people who make art at the Red Brick “day in and day out.”
“We spend a lot of time nurturing a really collaborative community at the Red Brick and forming these relationships with the artists and, of course, the relationships among the artists,” she said. “It feels like the annual family show.”
When you walk through the halls of the Red Brick, you’ll also see pieces by two other artists.
