Whether you work in the arts or are part of the wider community of enthusiasts, EFA artists are eager to connect with you and share their recent work and inspirations. EFA Open Studios is a vital time for our artists to interact directly with the public and make new connections. The annual weekend event was redesigned as an entirely online experience that allows a broader audience to attend. We hope you will join us in learning about the works and processes of this diverse and ever-changing community of artists.
EFA Studios will host private half-hour Zoom visits with studio member artists ($5 registration fee), a panel discussion to introduce our 2020 new member artists, a not-to-be-missed edition of Dannielle Tegeder’s Pandemic Salon on the topic of autonomy, and a performance by Katya Grokhovsky entitled “Postcards From America: Guest From The Future.”
EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop will host a conversation between artist Baseera Khan and John Andrews about new print publication and offer an at-home stencil demo with Antonia Perez for adults and families.
EFA Project Space will host a panel with the 2019–20 SHIFT: A Residency for Arts Workers residents, an Arts Workers Coalition Building Town Hall, and a closing event and publication launch as part of the current exhibition, The Immigrant Artist Biennial 2020: Here, Together!.
In addition to these live events, screenings and walkthroughs will be posted to the 2020 EFA [Virtual] Open Studios website. In-person gallery exhibitions will be open with extended hours.
