Get artsy this autumn! Q Gallery Cooperative is hosting a show this season featuring six pieces by six diverse backgrounds. Want to know more? Read ahead for everything you need to know about this show!
1. This exhibition has been years in the making!
The group of six artists has been meeting once a month for several years to critique each other's work, with the premise of helping each other create better art, so this show is highly prepared for visitors!
Below is the piece "Deep Space" by Jane Barnard.
2. This show combats the lonely business of art making.
The artists of Six by Six collaborated to share, support, critique, and motivate one another. As featured artist Dan Sivek puts it, "the comments are often insightful, always honest, and have pushed my art to a higher level."
Below is the piece "Pixie" by Dan Sivek.

Six by Six will be open throughout the rest of September, through October, and will close on November 2nd-- make sure to visit before it ends!
