|October News Flash
Warmest greetings! Looks like it’s going to be a busy Autumn season here at Anne Labovitz Studio! The next two months offer several events I am excited to share with you. On October 9, I will be a respondent with fellow artist Aaron Marx for The Drawing Project at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA)! Hoping to ignite conversation using my experiences with the Walker Art Center, Northern Spark at the Weisman Art Museum and Minnesota Museum of American Art (MMAA), I will be sharing thoughts about my personal practice and discuss how I use drawing as a tool to engage with our community. Would love to see you at this event! Details below.
Also in October, please join me at the Twin Cities Book Festival sponsored by Rain Taxi at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on October 11. Drop by the Rain Taxi table and engage with me while I create original “letter drawings” on scrolls of paper. A form of social sculpture, the artworks will be based on real-time conversations with Book Festival attendees about their favorite books, quotations, and authors. Each participant will receive a bookmark cut from the scrolls, a one-of-a-kind piece of the larger works made that day. “Letter Drawings” is an iteration of my Northern Spark project “Conversant Portraits” and a further prototype for my upcoming international traveling exhibition in cooperation with the Tweed Museum of Art. More details below.
Once again, I will be opening my studio doors in November for the Do the Dow Art Crawl. This is a great opportunity for me to share my work with my friends and the public. Please join me and my 30 fellow Dow artists November 14th and 15th (address and times below) for this event. More info to come in November’s News Flash!
Lastly, I have been invited to create new artworks for an exhibition in San Diego. Helmuth Projects is holding Object Object!! A Selection of Small Works, where my pieces will be exhibited November 1 – December 6, 2014. If you are in the area, please stop in the gallery!
