One year later the artist collective WECAN (Wilmington Enrichment Community Artist Network) have successfully made their mark in Wilmington. It has definitely been a great year for every single one of these young, and talented artists.  Here at Slanguage we are proud to have WECAN be part of the our Slang-Air residency project.  They are the first artists to exhibit this year and we are truly excited!

SLANGAIR (Artist in Residency)
This is the second exhibition as part of the Slanguage residency program, SLANGAIR (Artist in Residency), which annually invites artists from Wilmington, from California, including one from Los Angeles, a national artist, and an international artist to the studio.  During their time at Slanguage, each artist builds a body of work to show at the studio’s gallery space and may or may not include teaching a workshop and leading a lecture or panel discussion.

It took me one year to get this interview from WECAN, but it was worth the wait!  They have grown and learned so much over the last year that I am excited to hear about all about all their ventures. Lets sit back and check out what the kind folks at WECAN got to say.
