500X will host 10 artists in an exhibition showcasing work between mentor/artist pairs. At some point in an emerging artist’s early career, someone comes alongside him or her to give critique, counsel, support, more critique, advice, training, and even to write letters of recommendation for employment or grant opportunities. The mentor-mentee or educator-student relationship is integral to the growth of the artist and mentor, as well as the art community. For this exhibition, 500X extended 5 invitations to artists/educators/mentors in the DFW area and asked them to choose a student or mentee with whom to exhibit. The educator-student pair will either collaborate on a new work or display individual pieces side-by-side to visually convey the working relationship or influence.
