In 2020, Art Produce opened up its spaces to a broad slate of resident artists as a home away from home and a place to expand their artistic practices. They had no idea that a pandemic would make having a safe refuge out of the house more necessary than ever. 10 artists have and will inhabit the Art Produce Gallery, Cooler Room, Community Room, and Garden this year (3 of the 10 residencies are still upcoming). Their work is diverse and responsive to the time we are living in. In celebration of these artists as well as Art Produce’s 20th Anniversary , they are exhibiting the works of our resident artists from September 20th to November 1st in the Art Produce Gallery . Each resident artist has also been invited to nominate an additional artist (+) to be included in the exhibit. Along with works presented in the physical space (viewable from the sidewalk, by appointment, or during open, socially-distanced Gallery hours), works will be presented in the virtual space in an online Gallery. Much of the work, in either space, will be available for sale.
