So much happens in Art Alley every week.. It occurred to the Art Alley Artists' Guild that it would be great if the community had an opportunity to get a recap of these things, whether it be a traveling artist who creates a new mural, or the goals and topics that we discuss at our Friday coffee and conversations. Here is the recap for this week. Let us know what you think!
Tuesday, 9/15/14- Art Alley Artists' Guild OPEN PAINT SESSIONS
Art Alley Artists' Guild hosts Open Paint Sessions every third Tuesday of the month. This week Rapid City Public Library brought their teen advisory program down to participate.
Thursday, 9/18/14- The Rapid City Arts Council brought a class from Wyoming's Sundance High School down to Art Alley for a tour. The class was amazed at the variety of work they saw.
Friday, 9/19/14- Art Alley Artists' Guild 8am "Coffee and Conversations" at the Factory Salon. Open to the public. Anyone interested in Art Alley is encouraged to come join in the conversation!
Here is what was discussed.
-Featuring guild member profiles on the blog so people can get to know the people behind the scenes in the alley.
-ways to get artists involved from more genres of art/ welcoming back artists that feel displaced in the alley through collaborative projects.
-we took a look at the generation of local graffiti artists coming up in place of the former generation, and evaluated our mentorship of them.
We will continue to share these weekly happenings, and encourage you to share with us. We feel it is important to document all the amazing things that happen here, and hope you will help us identify and document these things as well, as all things in this space are so temporary.
