Wednesday, May 20: Rachel Rose: Lake Valley
Carnegie Museum of Art is launching its first-ever online exhibition series dedicated to its film and video collection. The series debuts with “Lake Valley,” a video work by Rachel Rose, who was featured in the 57th Carnegie International and the 2017 Venice Biennale. Inspired by 18th- and 19th-century children’s literature, Rose’s dream-like works explore timely themes of loneliness, imagination and personal connection. The online exhibit will be accompanied by virtual educational activities for all ages.

Online meeting

Show and Tell

Given the current circumstances, it seems we won’t be able to have our guild in-person meetings for some time. Since we all miss each other we decided to try an online meeting for all guild members interested.

We are going to have a Show and tell/critique meeting and see how it goes. It will take place on Tuesday March 31st at 2pm via Zoom.

For this first time we would like to know if you are interested. RSVP to lauratabakman@yahoo.com if you want to participate. You will get an invitation to join the meeting once she gets your response. You’ll get a link and some instructions with the invitation.
In the mean time you can download Zoom to your computer or any device you prefer to use. https://zoom.us/
