Shelf-Conscious: A Peak Inside the Artist's Journal


Ever wanted to understand the secret inner-workings of your local artists and writers? Join us at Make.Shift for the opening of Shelf-Conscious: A Peak Inside the Artist’s Journal. In Decemember 2017, Make.Shift released an open invitation to artists and writers in the community to display their journals, diaries, and sketchbooks. The exhibit, opening on First Friday Art Walk in February, will feature an array of formats, including pre-made mini-journals designed and distributed by Make.Shift volunteers. A segment of the gallery will be dedicated to an intimate and interactive bedroom installation designed by Make.Shift volunteers and community artists.

For anyone who like to participate, there’s still time! Journal submissions are due Saturday January 27th at 12pm. Don’t have a journal to display? There will also be a “secret diary” open mic at the opening on Art Walk Friday! Sign-ups begin at 6:30pm and performances will start at 7pm.
