Ryder will be in Chattanooga for the month of October, with an exhibition scheduled for the First Friday of November (Nov. 4th) at the Swine gallery. Throughout the month we will have scheduled events to engage with the community, including an opening reception & artist’s talk, a Patron’s Night Preview Party, a workshop, and some events at local restaurants and businesses. These events allow for the public to engage with the artist, learning in both formal and informal environments. You can see and read more about Ryder at his website. More news and updates on events coming soon!
