Gallery Talk 11.11 130p – 3p

Join Artist Curtis Wallin in conversation with Radian Founding Director Tony Wessling. They will discuss the creative process, including how Wallin has learned to “listen to the seen” to determine when a work of art is finished.

Friendly fire

Throughout my life, I have somehow had the luck of drawing a remarkable circle of artists as friends.
