This weekend is the penultimate weekend to hear artist activations from Studio for Arts + Works gallery in Carbondale. 

Come and view art from your local artist neighbors at SAW.

The SAW gallery is featuring more than 25 artists who work in the collaborative warehouse art space. 

The show will bring eclectic, quality art and community together in the same room, said Mila Rossi, a mixed-media artist in the show. 

SAW is a refurbished auto mechanic shop that was turned into a minimalists art studio to house a collection of local artists.

The artists who reside there do all forms of media from ceramics and painting to weaving, photography and abstract art. There is even other media forms like radio broadcast.

Rossi uses mixed-media art that will be featured in the gallery, photography and acrylics on canvas. 

The gallery is a great way to see the hard and private work of local community members that people might not know exists otherwise, Simon Klein, another featured artist, said. 

This is the first time in almost 10 years that the collaborative space has featured their art in one gallery together. 

From 5-6:30 p.m. each Thursday throughout March, one to three artists from the SAW gallery will have an artist activation. The closing reception for the gallery will be on 5-7 p.m. on April 6.

This Thursday’s artist activation will be Chris Hassig (drawing), Mila Rossi (mixed media) and
Cate Tallmadge (painting, weaving).

Next week’s activation will be March 30 with Jim Harris (printmaking) and Vanessa Gilbert (floral).
