Part of the SIGC mission is to promote artistic design, and we have a winner for you with our November 12 program, “Curating and Collecting Art for Your Home,” by Redux Contemporary Art Center. Redux is a Charleston based nonprofit organization committed to fostering creativity and the cultivation of contemporary Lowcountry art through artist-in-residency programs and is a bustling center for contemporary art with 38 private artist studios.
Cara Leepson, Executive Director, will help us learn how we can curate and collect art in the home and do so in a conscientious way that supports local communities. Cara has a long history with Redux as she began as an intern then pursued her MA in Arts & Museum Studies at Georgetown University. Upon completion of her degree, she went on to work for several arts organizations in the DC area including Hillyer Art Space, Glenstone Foundation, and Transformer before returning to Redux. Joining Cara will be Megan Bansil, Education & Outreach Director and Steph Fredricksen, Gallery and Programming Associate.
Please arrive at the Oyster Catcher Community Center around 9:30 am. There will be a short business meeting at 9:45 am and the Redux team will begin their presentation at 10:00. Remember masks are required in the OCCC.
For members interested in supporting the Redux non-profit mission, a donation “box” for a tax-deductible gift will be available.
