Please join us at BAK for these upcoming events:

Karen Arp-Sandel and Suzi Banks Baum

Join Karen Arp-Sandel and Suzi Banks Baum on Wednesday March 31 at 7:00 pm for an intimate gallery talk about the quiet radical act of collage “snail mail” communication in the face of a fast paced electronic-tech world. The Fe-Mail artists will narrate a personal tour of the “front and back stories” encoded in 1,000 days of visual collaboration.
The talk is free and open to the public.
Refreshments will be available by donation.

With the Fe-Mail exhibition as a backdrop, Karen Arp-Sandel and Suzi Banks Baum will teach The Daily-ness of Art, a daylong experiential workshop to inspire participants with easy tips about making collage art on a daily basis using everyday ideas and materials. No muss no fuss! The Workshop runs from 9:30 – 4:30 on Saturday April 10th. The workshop is open to 16 participants. The cost is $ 80, which includes $5 materials fee and the evening program.
Space is limited. Save your spot by pre-registering today via PayPal.

The workshop culminates with an inspirational evening movie and discussion from 7:00 – 9:00 pm on Saturday April 10th of “Who Does She Think She Is?”, a moving documentary about women artists who navigate the balancing act between motherhood and artistic expression.

The screening, which is open to the community for a donation of $10 to support BAK, premieres “Who Does She Think She Is?” by Pamela Tanner Boll and Nancy Kennedy. The movie chronicles the lives of 5 working artists who are mothers. It explores the barriers to the creative process and how art ultimately transforms women’s lives and those around them. The discussion will be facilitated by three exhibiting artist-mothers Karen Arp-Sandel, Suzi Banks Baum and BAK founder, Gabrielle Senza. You can learn more about the movie here.

Space is limited. Save your spot for the movie & discussion by pre-purchasing your ticket today via PayPal.

SWAN Day/Support Women Artists Now Day is a new international holiday that celebrates women artists. It is an annual event taking place on the last Saturday of March (Women’s History Month) and the surrounding weeks. The official date of the Third International SWAN Day is Saturday, March 27, 2010, but it is celebrated throughout the months of March and April.

By focusing attention on the work of women artists, SWAN Day helps people imagine what the world might be like if women’s art and perspectives were fully integrated into all of our lives.

People celebrate this new holiday by participating in SWAN Day events and by making donations to their favorite women artists. The long term goal of SWAN Day is to inspire communities around the world to find new ways to recognize and support women artists as a basic element of civic planning. There were over 170 SWAN Day 2009 events in 12 countries.
