Four years ago, Downtown arts champion Jane Reddin opened the doors of Practical Art, 5070 N. Central Avenue, after retiring from her legal career to support the blooming arts scene in Central Phoenix.
Four years after it first opened, Practical Art remains a strong support for more than 100 local artists with plenty of reasons to celebrate. And on April 20, 21, and 22, Roschi and Olson are inviting the community to do just that.
Mountable works less than 32 inches (horizontally) submitted by April 30 will be judged by a panel of local community members including Kimber Lanning of Local First, Kathryn Blake of Phoenix Art Museum, Heather Lineberry of ASU Art Museum, and artists Gregory Sale and Christine Cassano (to name a few).
