Every One is Creative. Yes, you are!

ArtPrize 9 and ArtWalk 8 Wrap up.

October 8, 2017
I found Sofia Ramirez’s ArtPrize entry interesting showing the public of her daily creative practice – drawing.  As in all things, in order to become “good” or accomplished at a craft or skill, you must practice.  Many times, customers come into the gallery and I hear them  saying how they have no artistic talents.  I always try to have a conversation with them that being creative takes practice.  Our artists have tens of thousands of hours invested into their art medium.  I also believe that being creative does not mean only using an art medium.  Everyone is creative daily making decisions, cooking meals, choosing clothing, and even in how they choose their words to communicate.  We are all creative.

Another ArtPrize and ArtWalk wraps up today.  Three weeks of all things related to art in West Michigan.  It’s fun to hear the comments about the entries with discussions about “Is this art?”  In Grand Haven, I felt that the entries were of high caliber across all categories.  Our artist was Denise LeClaire with a mixed media entry, awarded honorable mention in this category, “In Honour that Life is Short”.

With Grand Haven’s smaller, volunteer organized version of ArtPrize, we gained a new mural in town by Chris Protas, who won the Juried Painting Category for Grand Haven’s ArtWalk event.
