We invite you to venture into the world of visionary artist Karolina Gnatowski, as she welcomes us into her studio for a private viewing of her work and discussion on best practices for artists. With a solo exhibition scheduled to open at a local museum in 2019, we will learn about her trajectory as an artist and what it takes to prepare for a project of this scale. This is also a wonderful opportunity for our members to hear from Karolina on the topic of maintaining an active studio practice, and gain further insight into how one can navigate and establish meaningful connections in the art world.
This special program is part of our Professional Practice: Off-site Visit series, intended to introduce members to the numerous and diverse art spaces and individuals that contribute to Chicago’s vibrant arts landscape. In addition to connecting with other professionals in the city, these visits present our members with a range of resources and career paths.
