Corrin Zareck on gallery curation and arts in the community
August 13, 2019
Corrin Zareck is an art educator, an artist, and the curator at the Gallery at the Mill in Unionville, Connecticut. She's been surrounded by art since early in her life, and remains surrounded by it - her own and the work of other artists from the area. The gallery is situated throughout a building that also houses various businesses and workshop spaces, so the pieces are in constant view - and open to the public whenever a drop-in is possible!

Gabriel & Zaida Perez on creative marketing, Latinx entrepreneurism, and understanding your value
June 18, 2019
"Commercial" art can often be overlooked. The people behind some of the world's most iconic logos and advertising campaigns don't get the recognition that their creations do. But in order to distill a brand to a single, instantly identifiable logo or catch phrase requires extraordinary creativity. The world of advertising hasn't changed much, but the faces of professionals are resembling the cast of "Mad Men" a little less every day. Gabriel and Zaida Perez are the husband and wife team behind VP Creative Agency, each finding space to operate within their own strengths and helping each other to shine. And as young entrepreneurs they face an uphill creative battle.
