Finding Space, Curating the Inbetween with curator Jess Nickel

Join fellow artists, budding artists and supporters of the arts for a conversation with Jess Nickel, an independent curator based in Portland.  Nickel will discuss her projects, including the roving exhibition series "SATOR."  She'll also share the challenges of finding the space for a personal creative practice when it doesn’t sustain you financially and the lessons she has learned in developing her own artistic practice.

"Finding Space, Curating the Inbetween" is made possible through a partnership between OSU-Cascades and the "Scalehouse Voices" series produced by Scalehouse in Bend.
