PWA Vol. II: The Southwest Book Release

You're invited to the official book release event for Piney Wood Atlas' second publication, chronicling alternative artist residencies across the Southwestern US! 

Around 7:00 Alicia Toldi (1/2 of PWA) will give a presentation on the small, emerging, and unconventional residencies they have come across as well as general information on attending or forming your own residency. 

After that, experienced artists-in-residence Nicole Lavelle and Alex Arzt (& more TBA) will join her in a Q&A session -- Bring your own questions and learn how you can attend your first residency, step up your game as a professional artist, or start thinking about creating your own DIY residency.

We'll have some snacks and drinks, and books will be for sale for $20 each. We'll also have copies of the first book: The Northwest. 

A bit about residencies and Piney Wood Atlas' mission:
Artist residencies exist in many forms: rural, urban, secluded, communal, free, not free; but what they all have in common is offering the gift of time and space to work creatively without everyday distractions. People are often surprised to hear us say there’s a residency for everyone-- defining “artist” as any kind of creative thinker or maker. We strive to show creatives that attending or organizing a residency is an attainable, productive and fun adventure for all.
