Artists in Boulder are often challenged by a competitive and not so supportive environment. In an effort to bring greater awareness for the arts in Boulder and strengthen and celebrate our own art community, we are working on a radio series called “A R T Talk”. It is hosted by one of Boulder’s long time art curators, Susan Knickle and is produced by Yukari Miyamae.
ART Talk shares “shop talk” by artists, local and beyond. Susan encourages lively interchanges between artists about techniques, approaches, and their mediums and concepts along with their experiences with the arts in their community. We are currently planning a series of six interviews with unique and local artists who work in many mediums (i.e sculptors, jewelers, ceramicists, painters, installation artists, etc.) some of whom literally travel to the ends of the earth seeking creative experiences.
