Transforming Risk Art Exhibit

Facebook RSVP & more info

For more info contact: Nerissa Street
Artists, filmmakers, performers push the envelope.
The result?
Their risk is your reward.

Free to the public.

What if your story is just what someone needs to hear to step out on faith?
Join us for Transforming Risk: on Saturday, May 18, come to 1310 Gallery between 7 – 9pm.

Tell us the story about the risk you are taking.
Maybe you’re a single dad who is changing to a lower paying job so you can spend more time with your little boy. Or maybe you’re finally going to put away the broken heart and date again. This project redefines risk; it doesn’t mean danger. It means freedom and joy.

If you are an artist, bring 1 to 3 pieces no larger than 4 ft x 6 ft that will be hung that night (our wall space is huge). Performers, bring yourself and your CD or images of your work. Contribute work on the night of “Transforming Risk”, and get 3 – 5 minutes on-camera to tell your story to our audience. Tell us your story: How does your work take a risk? How are you taking a risk by being a creative professional?
Selected interviews will be edited together for a closing and follow-up event on Friday, June 7.
