FAA Virtual Artist Talk With Leslie Barlow on Zoom

Wednesday, May 6
1:00pm - 2:00pm
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

Leslie Barlow is an artist living and working in Minneapolis, MN. Primarily an oil painter, Barlow shares stories through figural relationships that explore the politics of representation, identity, otherness, and racial constructs. She investigates these through the use of the personal; often creating works depicting family, friends, people in her community, and personal experiences, to reflect the subtle and not-so-subtle integrations of these ideas into individual lives and identities. Barlow received her BFA in 2011 from the University of Wisconsin- Stout and her MFA in 2016 from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

Wellness Wednesday

Take care of yourself and your community

Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress. Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.

Ways to cope with stress

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body.
  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
