Dec. 10-17 We Walk Vertically Kent Bellows Studio & Center for Visual Arts, 3303 Leavenworth St. Reception Dec. 10, 6-9 p.m., FREE Hours by appt. Tues.-Fri., 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sat. 11 a.m.-6 p.m. 505.7161, kentbellows.org Since 2007 The Kent Bellows Studio has encouraged creative action through its mentorship programs partnering high school students with artists. This exhibit, the first in their newly renovated studio space at 33rd and Leavenworth, excels at presenting the depth and dedication of the mentors’ ability to inspire their mentees. According to curators Jessica Bequette, Madison Clark, Cameo Gillum, Hesse McGraw and Evan Pappan, “ We Walk Vertically is a representation of the complex relationship between our extreme society and the normalcy of this pace in our day-to-day lives … The works reflect our world today, the people that inhabit it, the aspect of motion in our lives, or even the future that we may face.” Forty student artists and their mentors (including ceramicist Amy Nelson and painter Matt Jones) explore this concept through work from a variety of media, inspiring viewers to reflect on fast-paced society and our interconnected actions.
