Garden Conversations — Ruben Ochoa


Wednesday, July 29 on Instagram Live at 12:00 noon (PST) http://instagram.com/vielmetter/live/


Please join us for a live conversation with Susanne Vielmetter and Ruben Ochoa talking about his work and studio practice in the current pandemic.


“Garden Conversations” is a series of live conversations with artists of the gallery to give insight into the artist’s creative processes, to talk about how the current lockdown is affecting us all and to explore ideas that might help us get through this difficult moment in time. We miss being in the gallery and talking to our visitors, so these conversations will hopefully open a window to connect with our audience while the gallery is closed.
