LOCAL>> Artists' Exchange – Becca Barolli and Gina Telcocci
Two sculptors from the Bay Area join the monthly lunch to share their work/process
The Artists’ Exchange is a group created by and for artists to share new work, ideas, resources, and opportunities – over lunch.
Bring your lunch, and let’s talk about art! Share your questions, challenges, successes and tips for others.
Each month the host, Pamela Blotner, invites 2 artists to share their work and their ideas and processes. The group will then be invited to give feedback and ask questions.
This month, she welcomes artists Becca Barolli and Gina Telcocci.
