When I think of bridging and art, different things come to me.
First, my dream is to bridge community to art.
I do this by running an approachable gallery with a diverse art collection. Also, I have been playing host to many people to paint nights in the gallery. This awakens their inner artists and enhancing their visions of the world. My work with the local school’s “Design Thinking in Mathematics” class has connected me to young adults which is remarkably entertaining.
Second, I think about my ability “not” to bridge one art piece to the next.
I love to experiment (play) with different media and styles. I have a hard time sticking to one medium or style for too long. I have come to terms with this. I want to do what I love and I love to be “all over the place” as an artist. I apologize right now (but not really) for my erratic, undisciplined and self-taught art.
See you at our art show April 12, 13 and 14 at Grace Westminster United Church.
