With our community getting vaccinated and the COVID restrictions changing, the Box Factory for the Arts is hopeful to be hosting more and more events, workshops and gallery shows in the upcoming months. We just love the sight of people roaming our galleries on all three floors thanks to the MAAC 2021 Exhibition. But thanks is also due to several new tenants and studio artists in residence hosting workshops and classes.
We’d like to invite those who are hosting events, workshops and classes inside the Box to share your event information with the Box Marketing Committee. Here’s how:
2. Create Event Listings on your Facebook Page and list the Box Factory for the Arts as a Co-Host. Or share the post with @boxfactoryarts to have your event appear on our Facebook Page. We currently have over 4,000 followers who would love to learn more about your events.
ST. JOSEPH, MI – Series 6, the annual holiday exhibit by members of the Berrien Artist Guild, opens Friday, Dec. 4th at the Box Factory for the Arts, 1101 Broad St., St. Joseph. The exhibit in the Heartha Whitlow Gallery will be available for viewing on Fridays-Sundays from noon to 4 pm through January 16.
This last exhibit of the year is an annual celebration of the variety of artwork created by Box Factory studio artists and the membership at large. It is an opportunity to shop for local art during the holidays. Included are paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, photographs, jewelry and much more.
A special mini gallery exhibit of paintings by Carr Pierce will also be displayed during the member show. The exhibit “Here and There” includes abstract paintings inspired by the landscape of Southwest Michigan. The paintings are memories and impressions of landscapes with flashes of saturated colors and fields of muted grays. The painted surfaces are worked with brushes, trowels, and other mark-making tools.
Carr Pierce is an artist whose practice includes painting, drawing, collage and ceramics. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Master of Fine Arts. The recent transplant to Southwest Michigan has exhibited works in New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, Kalamazoo and St. Joseph.
