"I am delighted to be a member of this vibrant community! The artist/teachers are so generous and provide numerous ways to inform, inspire, and encourage us whether it is enjoying the recorded Monday Mashups, presentations from Gallery directors, engaging in zoom calls with well known artists in the states and abroad, having your work critiqued by an artist/teacher, or participating in the many “challenge groups” (such as “31 paintings in a month,” “31 paintings in a year,“ “paint parameters,” and others). We also have a book club.
At the beginning of this year, members had the opportunity to exhibit in “Viral Collaboration” at the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago. The exhibition was conceived by Helen Dannelly and Jeff Hirst- two of the co-founders of Catalyst Art Lab.
It is a generous community and there are also those who help behind the scenes. We are so fortunate to be able to engage with artists around the world through the membership site and our zoom events. It has been a rewarding experience particularly through the difficult times of the pandemic.
I have had the opportunity to meet new friends and artists, hear them discuss their work, and be both inspired and encouraged by them through this membership. Over the past year, I have seen my own art practices improve.
I encourage you to become a member of Catalyst Art Lab!"
