Creating Space – A Conversation with Rose E. DeSloover

March 21, 2021 3 PM CDT/4PM EDT online

Join us for another installment of our Creating Space project. Karen Hurley Kuchar will host a conversation with artist Rose E. DeSloover on her creative process.

The creative process directly engages chaos. The process of making art is one way to the individual and the collective unconscious. Using the approach of sustained reflection, the basic motivation has always been the same — to see in a fresh way, outside the normal patterns, to discover or invent new form. Each generation is presented its own array of opportunities, challenges and problems calling for creative involvement.
