Dialect Discipline captures artists in action

Posted By on Fri, Sep 7, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Aside from the growing trend of live painting, most artists create their works in private, with plenty of space for breaks, revisions and messiness. Unless you're an apprentice, you might never get the chance to hover over a shoulder, watching the art of making art in action. Pura Vida's latest exhibit, Dialect Discipline, offers this fly-on-the-wall view of local art luminaries.
