The artists of Playful Postcards: Artist Study for a Virtual Gallery Walk and Artist Celebration will join the Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) at 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 7, via Zoom. This event will highlight the work of eight talented community artists who participated in MCA’s Playful Postcards: Artist Study class this fall. The community is invited to join the Zoom conference, although pre-registration is required.
Playful Postcards: Artist Study was an eight-week creative aging program designed for participants ages 55 and older to explore art techniques and artists while using a blank postcard as the canvas. After creating weekly challenges, each student sent creations to a classmate to share their art and conversation. Artists explored pop artist David Hockney, Bridget Riley’s op art, Henri Matisse’s collage techniques, and more.
The virtual gallery walk will feature a slide show presentation of created postcard photos, as well as a short discussion with attending artists and instructor Brianna Haupt. Artists include Leslie Albers, Deborah Becker-Galewski, Connie Bodas, Nancy Brown, Patricia Karnick, Margaret Kiihne, Pat Mutter, and Beth Seebach.

Registered participants will receive a Zoom link prior to November 7. The slideshow gallery also will be shared after November 7 on MCA’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.
