Show Notes:

Welcome to Episode #11 of the Art for Life Podcast!

This episode will cover everything that’s happened here at the gallery and in our life for the past six months during the “season of Covid” and bring you up to date with where we are today.

Then, just in time for Halloween, we look at Jackalopes and explore the artistic concept of juxtaposition and how it is used to create drama in art.

Finally – we share an easy to make recipe with a nostalgic past:
Lavender No Bake Jello Cheese Cake!

If you are an artist who has suffered a dismounting blow from the recent disruption of the pandemic, if you are an art enthusiast who wishes galleries, art shows and in person art classes and performing arts events would resume, or even if you are just a curious soul wondering how we are all going to get by – stay with us, tune in, get ready to expand your mind!

Check out our show notes below for helpful links to the recipes mentioned in the show.

Take a peak into the life and times of contemporary artists and gallery owners as we pivot our business – staying engaged anyway possible to navigate troubling times during Covid.

Be inspired by confident words of survival and optimism for the future for artists.

Explore the importance of juxtaposition in your art – no matter what your media. Your host, artist Rose Jarecki, explores the powerful use of juxtaposition in art and how it’s use can transmit powerful messaging.
