Clara Hatton Gallery, Visual Arts


The Hatton Gallery is hosting a live recording of the Art and Life Podcast in front of a studio audience by CSU Department of Art and Art History Alumni Taylor Gallegos as he interviews Professor Marius Lehene.

The Art and Life podcast is an artistic exploration in itself. It is an experiment in an audio format that focuses on the art and philosophy involved with different people and their life paths. This podcast is intended to inspire listeners in their creative pursuits.  You can find it anywhere you get your podcasts.

The podcast will be recorded live in the Hatton Gallery in front of the audience. The event is free and open to the public.

The Host: Taylor Gallegos is an artist, originally from Colorado, currently based in California.  Taylor has been making art for his whole life, he received a BFA from Colorado State University with a Study Abroad semester in Italy, and has been making and selling artwork since he graduated. For the past 5 years, he has been working mostly in the world of large scale murals and live painting for events.  In the beginning of 2020, he took his artistic process into the world of podcasting and plans on continuing to do so into the future.

You can view his work on his website at taylorgallegosart.com, on LinkedIn at Taylor Gallegos, and on Instagram and Facebook @taylorgallegosart.
