It’s an age-old, often-despised question lobbed at art majors and artists just the same when discussing a piece of work: “So… what’s the takeaway?” With Juana Meneses and Leila Leder Kremer’s Portable Editions, the takeaway is two-part and can be quite literal. First, it’s an actual physical copy of artistic expression that you hold in your hands via their zine printmaking workshops, and the second takeaway is more cerebral but potentially more valuable: that art should be accessible to all people and passed along through stories and images we share with one another. Menses and Leder Kremer will discuss their small-batch, Risograph printing project and upcoming printer residency and March workshops during an Artist Talk at Girls Club on Saturday. The talk is in conjunction with the current exhibition “Self-Proliferation.” Grab a listening post early, because the talk is scheduled during two other big art events for the surrounding area – the annual Third Avenue Art District, in which downtown Fort Lauderdale studios open up to the public during an art walk, and the monthly FAT Village and Flagler Artwalk that happens on the last Saturday of each month.
The artist talk is free and open to the public, beginning at 7 p.m. at 117 NE Second St. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-828-9151, or visit girlsclubcollection.org. Parking is available in the City Hall garage across the street.
