Like most of y’all, we spend the end of our year thinking back and dreaming forward. New Year’s Resolutions, or whatever you may call them, are fun ways to think about what the next twelve months may have in store. They are also good ways to plan for the work you hope to do.
This week, Ryan and Garreth sit down to talk with fashion designer, painter and entrepreneur Alexander Britto about his work, his drive and we even throw in a live collaborative thinking session. Every relationship is an opportunity to merge your practice and skillset with another artist or designer. After all, if we are to know and be know by other artists, we will have to work across our boundaries to make new things.

For a limited time, our documentary The Builder is available to stream on Vimeo! The film centers on the art scene in Richmond, Virginia, with a focus on Oregon Hill native and contractor Don Childress, who–to the surprise of many–has an incredible contemporary art collection.

Help Ken Gilbertson and Hatchback Gallery!
Our good friend Ken is trying to update Hatchback Gallery to better serve his new city and its art lovers. While he won’t let anyone touch the outside of the gallery, he does want to get a few new parts and build some new walls. We are helping Ken launch a GoFundMe; even a few bucks can be a big help!
