Free and open to the public

Earlier this year, artist Resa Blatman traveled up the west coast of Svalbard, Norway to the Arctic Circle on an antique tall ship with 28 poets, writers, dancers, video artists, photographers, installation and fine artists. This experience influenced her work and thought processes, as well as her awareness of environmental and cultural realities such as the effects of our plastic usage on the landscape, and the mark that our warming climate is making on the great and beautiful glaciers of the north.

Join us on Wednesday, October 21st in the BCA’s Mills Gallery when Resa Blatman hosts an informal discussion inviting artists and art enthusiasts to talk about their experiences and ideas on the subject of Artists in Unusual Places. Participants are invited to send up to two jpegs reflecting their own experiences, to be discussed during the evening as time permits.

Topics from our host:
I'd like to talk about how political themes influence our work—I'm not a "political" artist, but I think it's interesting to note how our political environment influences an artist's work, and I'd be very delighted to hear from the audience about the topics that influence them. And I'm always eager to talk about climate change, even though I'm not a professional on the topic.
