Episode 160: Today I talk to L.A. collage artist Dale Voelker, who I discovered on Saatchi.com. I was drawn in by his colorful art mixed with text. When I found out he owned a graphic design studio, I knew I had to talk to him. We talk about the line between corporate and fine art, among other things.
Episode 161: Today I talk to Andrea Downs, who is here, in Charlotte. She created the Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry installation, that is currently at the Mint Museum of Charlotte. But Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry is also an ongoing community art movement that responds to the silencing of women. Both create space to share experiences through visual storytelling. This installation is the collective voices of nearly 400 “Laundry Day” participants that have chosen to share their visual narratives.
Episode 157: Today I talk with Chase Langford who is an independent artist in LA. His background in cartography influences his paintings. He likes to call it Geographic Expression. Chase is represented by several galleries in the U.S., including Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art in Charlotte, NC.
