Sunday Painter began in 2016 as a platform to shine a light on local talent and peer into their sacred creative process. Weekly interviews have granted access to inspiring creatives working across multiple media. This podcast is a collage of sound that mirrors their current motivations, ongoing projects and upcoming shows; allowing artists to story-tell through various selected tracks. Artists are encouraged to invite a guest to collaborate with them each show, forging new connections in the creative community.
Local host Alex Nuñez has covered a wide array of topics and archived a diverse collection of music. The show, now turning 3- has broadcasted remotely from over 5 countries and has interviewed over 50 international artists.
The concept of the show originated while she was freelance DJing in grad school and became fascinated with the music selection of her peer's studio practice. The constant exchange of music within these studio visits inspired her to make a real time snapshot of Contemporary artists in their natural habitat- where they go for hours on end, alone with their thoughts and endless access to music.
Group exhibitions at the end of each season of recording promote awareness of the program and encourage local engagement in the community. Listeners are invited to a physical manifestation of the project. Seeing these works in relation to these episodes allow the viewer a unique insight into the intention and craftsmanship of the artwork. Site specific performances, panel programming and live broadcasting from local businesses encourage interaction during the run of the program.
