    Stop, Collaborate and Listen

    Sometimes it seems like the only thing we are supposed to do as artists and designers, and sometimes it just seems like an imprecise buzzword. Whatever the case is, collaboration is always buried somewhere in our conversations about our practices. No matter where you enter the conversation, whether through economics, professional practice, or exploration, collaboration ...

    Color, Color, Everywhere…

    We never get away from the basics. We’ve all heard that in school and life and everywhere else, so we decided to drop back into one: color. As a painter and a designer, Ryan and Garreth approach the basics from opposite sides at times, so it is worth unpacking what these approaches look like. How ...

Thoughtful and thorough

There is so much to chew on in the Shockoe Artspeak Podcast. Ryan and Garreth ask great questions and encourage meaningful discussions with creators and facilitators.

Not just for artists

I stumbled upon this podcast and am glad I did. Although I’m not an artist “per say”, I can’t stop listening to the hosts and how they address life in general with such an insightful wisdom. I love the deep and thoughtful conversations that address some very common issues we all face in life. Plus they had me busting up laughing! Highly recommend subscribing to this podcast. You’ll be glad to did.

Encouraging and thought provoking

Shockoe Artspeak is extremely encouraging and thought provoking. Ryan and Garreth are tapping into a lot of foundational elements and thought that surround art and design. This has been a helpful window into cultural engagement. They are dealing wonderfully with what sits at the foundation of art and what drives a lot of the cultural content that we all come across daily. It’s been great to learn from these guys and their guests!
