During art school, having someone come into your studio and talk about your work seems like a normal thing: your friends come in, your studiomates come in, and your professors come in. But after graduation, when the studio is in your home, or in your backyard, those visits are fewer and farther between. Outside of school, the idea of a studio visit may seem strange, but there are good ways to approach them because they are hugely important.
This week, Ryan and Cody sit down to unpack studio visits, what they are, and how they work. Special thanks to Cody for picking up Garreth’s slack while he is away taking a few classes.

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!
