Happy Holidays from CAS and a huge THANK YOU to all of our readers, writers, and residents for another incredible year! Throughout 2019, CAS has continued to expand our live programming and online content, as well as working tirelessly to strengthen the infrastructure of our growing platform. We welcomed Yang Yeung and Sam Holleran as our 2019 CAS Residents in Art Writing, and our online journal featured new articles, interviews, reviews, and institutional profiles, furthering our mission to strengthen discourse around the visual arts in Stavanger. We’re proud to have featured 32 contributions by 27 writers, artists, and curators.
We’re also thrilled to announce the launch our new, much improved Community Arts Calendar! The Calendar provides a guide to current and upcoming exhibitions, events, workshops, and opportunities in the Stavanger region. Submissions are open to all, so be sure to update your events for 2020!
As always, the creative community in Stavanger and abroad has shown extraordinary support and generosity to CAS. Thank you for making our work possible, and we are excited to continue to grow discourse around the visual arts in Stavanger in the New Year!
