Featured on Upcoming Episodes of the 16oz. Canvas

Shelton, CT, June 6, 2018–  We here at The 16oz. Canvas are happy to announce our seventh 12-pack of artists today. Each week we introduce our audience to artists, designers and illustrators from around the world that help bring our favorite beers and breweries to life. Each week is an exciting introspective into an important but niche piece of the industry. The beauty of this project is not only do we learn about their process, but their stories of hard work and entrepreneurship that inspires so many.

We are well over a year into the project and continue to build momentum and grow our community of listeners, supporters and artists. The project officially launched on April 7th of 2017 in conjunction with National Beer Day. The community is growing as we work to discover new artists and their portfolios together. Artists new and old appear on the show to share their experiences and insights at various stages of their careers to help paint a more robust picture of the life and trials of being an artist and designer. Common themes of hard work, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit are staples of each episode. All of our interviews and genuine, honest and simple discussions between strangers who learn about each other and the human spirit through a common connection and appreciation of art and life.

We are beer agnostic, so while there will be times that we feature some of our favorite breweries from around the globe, our focus here is on art, design and process. Our hope is that the beer is just as good as the art, but we all know that isn’t always be the case and we’re OK with that. The podcast will launch its 64th episode this Friday June 8th featuring Colin Suterland of Woolly Press and his work with Fonta Flora Brewing Co.. Each episode can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, TuneIn as well as our website or wherever your favorite podcasts are enjoyed. This project is an evolving one as we will be bringing it to life this summer in New Haven, CT at the Kehler Lidell Gallery from Jul 14-29th. The installation will feature 9 of the podcast alumni as they showcase their label and outside the bottle / can works. Our opening night launch will feature the artists live in 3-D for an intimate night of art, music and shared experience. 


Host AJ Keirans, brings together two of his passions for this project – craft beer and radio. The three-time ‘Best Local Radio Personality’ is an active member of the CT beer community and brings that energy to the Canvas each week.
