In this episode, Wioleta talks to designer, artist and educator Martin Venezky about the importance of staying observant, challenging yourself, experimenting and dipping into a new territory.

In this episode, Wioleta talks to painter and educator Craig Drennen about his latest show at Laney Contemporary Gallery in Savannah, GA and how Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens has served as a source of inspiration since 2008 and led to a distinct body of work. Craig explains how the concept of “edgeland” as articulated by the Lettrist and Situationist groups relates to his work and why it is important to rely on intuition.
