On Saturday, November 7 at 10am the community is invited to join Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) and the artists of Playful Postcards: Artist Study for a Virtual Gallery Walk and Artist Celebration via Zoom. This event will highlight the work of eight talented community artists who participated in MCA’s Playful Postcards: Artist Study class throughout September and October.

Playful Postcards: Artist Study was an 8-week creative aging program designed for participants ages 55+ to explore art techniques and artists while using a blank postcard as the canvas. After creating weekly challenges each student sent their creation to a classmate to share their art and conversation. Artists explored pop artist David Hockney, Bridget Riley’s Op Art, Henri Matisse’s collage techniques and more.

The Virtual Gallery walk will feature a slide show presentation of photos of the postcards which were created and also a short discussion with attending artists and instructor, Brianna Haupt.  Playful Postcards: Artist Study Artists include: Leslie Albers, Deborah Becker-Galewski, Connie Bodas, Nancy Brown, Patricia Karnick, Margaret Kiihne, Pat Mutter and Beth Seebach.

To attend this live virtual event please register in advance here and you will receive a Zoom Link prior. If you are unable to attend the live event the slideshow gallery will be shared on MCA’s Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.
