How things unfold....

We the "Book Club Artists's" just received our postcards and we are gathering our work, getting it ready for this exhibit that unfolded with the guidance our Curator Dorothy Bury Shaw.  Our group is formed of creative souls in all mediums, from poetry to watercolors, mixed media, collage, acrylic painting, assemblage, drawing/inks/colored pencils, oils and sculpture.  We gathering monthly for support and discussion we started with our first book Studio Stories by Lauren Rader, we enjoyed the chapters greatly...

Dorothy afforded us all the opportunity exhibit in her time slot at If These Walls Could Talk Gallery and Frame shop. Uncertain about how it would all turn out we said "Yes lets do this" Then a Name for our group need to be established and with all that creative minds together we settled on the most simplest..."Book Club Artists...because that who we are...

We recently watch the Documentary, "Who Does She Think She is?"  Was really good to see this together.

Our inspiration is unified sharing as artist on our journeys through life at all stages of being artist, women and spiritual beings. This quote describes our thoughts every so simply.

"Art is a portal. Through it we can explore these mysterious depths, see the beauty of our world more clearly, understand ourselves and other more deeply, and realize the gift of our individuality. Like walks along the river, making art is a journey of illumination and possibility, pregnant with potential for ourselves, those we touch, and ultimately, beyond."

 We are now currently ready "Art and Fear" together...

Our opening for this exhibit will be Friday July 7th from 7-11pm If you get a chance do stop by or though the Month of July  "the diversity will be astonishing."

    Art&fear - great book. Looking forward to hearing your opinions.
    In the beginning, the authors lay out a few basic assumptions about human nature; "assumptions that place the power (and hence the responsibility) for our actions in our own hands.

    Artmaking involves skills that can be learned
    Art is made by ordinary people
    Making art and viewing art are different at their core
    Artmaking has been around longer than the art establishment


Thank you for stopping by and viewing my collage chatter, many creative blessings and peace to you and yours
