In this episode, Holly Bechiri talks to Alynn Guerra, well-known and well-loved Grand Rapids printmaker about the recent flooding damage at her Tanglefoot studio when pipes burst above her space at the end of the recent polar vortex storms.
In this episode, Erika Townsley talks with Zachary Trebellas, an artist, rapper, educator, and advocate for the arts here in Grand Rapids. Trebellas speaks on his involvement with The Avenue for the Arts, what it was like to teach English in Japan, and more about his background as an artist through performance pieces and interactive projects.
Bechiri talks about how her education in art lead her to working as a writer focusing on arts writing and criticism. Though always keeping an art journal on hand to create small personal works, (she was on journal #75 at the time this podcast was recorded), Bechiri finally started making artwork for others to see and exhibit in shows for the first time in over a decade in the past year.
