Salon conversation and ping pong game hosted by BCA Summer Public Art Resident Liz Nofziger
BCA Plaza | Free

Stop by for lemonade and conversation around the topic "RULES OF THE GAME," an informal artist-generated/artist-hosted get-together at GERTRUDE’S, the artists’ lounge and lab at the BCA’s Mills Gallery. Conversation will evolve into actual play—come show us your skills, or pick up some new ones on Nofziger's uniquely configured table. All levels welcome.

Artists, athletes, gamers, sports fans, audiences, students—if you are curious and/or opinionated about the many issues raised by creative consideration of topics such as rules and play—tell us about it!

Art as, in and with Education

Friday, June 13 | 7pm
Salon conversation co-hosted by Maggie Cavallo and Leonie Bradbury
Free and open to the public

Artists, arts educators, audiences, students – if you are curious and/or opinionated about the many many issues raised by considerations of art and education – please come join the conversation!

How do you learn about art? Through art?

The overlapping roles of art and education have a distinct effect on the lives of artists, arts educators, audiences, students and the general public. From identifying and being able to describe arts learning experiences, to the place (or lack there of) for the arts in K-12 Education – the relationship between these fields are complex and ripe with opportunity. Join Maggie Cavallo and Leonie Bradbury for an open discussion geared towards defining art as, in and with education. Whether STEM to STEAM, the role of teaching artists in our schools and community centers, considerations of art as research and learning, or the role of colleges and universities in the lives of emerging and practicing artists – these conversations can lead us to models for how we understand both the arts and education.

GERTRUDE’S artist salon at the Mills

With special guest hosts Emily Eveleth and Penn Young
Friday, March 28 | 7pm

We are pleased to present the second in our new series of semi-monthly get-togethers in GERTRUDE’S, our salon for informal artist-generated/artist-hosted conversations at the BCA’s Mills Gallery. This event will be co-hosted by artists Emily Eveleth and Penn Young.

The event is free, and all are welcome.


Submit an image of a work by another artist that you have learned something from, and come prepared to talk to the group about what you have learned. We are not looking for submissions of works that were used as source material, and we will try to put the submissions in an interesting order. We will try to use them all, though time may not allow that.

Emily and Penn’s Ground Rules -

  • Bonus points if the work is not in your usual medium;
  • Double bonus points if the work was made prior to 1964;
  • Triple bonus points if the work is from another continent;
  • Submitting more than one image of the same work is okay if alternate views or details are needed. We reserve the right to limit the number of images per person;
  • Attribution info must be included with submission; and
  • Last but not least, think of what you’re doing as opening the door to a group conversation, rather than giving a presentation. So don’t feel that you’ll need to say more than a few words and perhaps answer a question or two.
