Attend an Artist Talk | projects+gallery

Saturday, March 14
11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Free & Open to the Public

Join projects+gallery for a discussion with local artists Brandon Anschultz and Harley Lafarrah Eaves, whose artwork is currently on view in their group exhibition “A Charm Against All That.” The talk will be moderated by the curator of the exhibition, Barrett Barrera Projects Director of Curatorial & Program Development Jessica Baran.

Brandon Anschultz works across media, creating abstract pieces, series, and installations that dismantle and reinvent the formal and material language of painting as an allegory for
interrogating the self.

Harley Lafarrah Eaves’ paintings, sculptures, and installations blend psychedelic camp, occult mythology, pop cultural symbolism, and working-class materiality as a means to exploring the vicissitudes of memory and loss.
