The participating artists have worked alongside each other in studios, shared ideas, and supported each other's artistic journeys.

The exhibition space itself becomes a meeting ground, where artists and visitors alike can engage in meaningful conversations and forge new connections. Through workshops, artist talks, and public programs, "Friends and Family" invites the community to participate in the creative process and explore the transformative power of art.
