Living Gallery Studios Under Construction

What a difference a few days make! We are 5 days into our Living Gallery Studio construction in the Trahern gallery and things are moving right along. The intrepid crew of APSU students Amber Kearns, Dennis Roman, George Harrison, Rina Gonzalez and Alex Wurts are making short work of this project. Click here or on the picture below to check out the video and watch for the following highlights:

  • 1 min 13 sec – Gena Shire makes an elusive video bomb appearance
  • 1 min 25 sec – Dennis hurls his fellow student
  • 1 min 35 sec – Rina Gonzalez breaks it down

The studios are set to open to participating students during the week of August 20th. Stay tuned for the announcement of our first public reception for all participating artists.
