Every now and then I drift away from the (nearly) daily practice of art journaling, only to come back ravenously hungry for the art form again. For many years now I’ve been playing, pouring my heart out and coveting my art journals. I truly feel that every single person could benefit from it. It is a wonderful thing to have something that you can pour every authentic thought into and truly, truly not have to worry about if someone thinks its weird or socially acceptable or if it will hurt someone’s feelings. Once it is on the page, it can be covered and turned into something beautiful or positive. Art journaling can be a very cathartic practice.
So while you may not see consistent blog posts, uploads to flickr or my other art pages, know that I am always doing something creative everyday I can, and you can be sure that I am journaling as much as my soul calls. I urge you to do the same.
We were hard at work today installing our show in the Transitions Gallery at the Center for the Visual Arts located on Wausau’s beautiful 400 block (next to the Grand Theater). This show combines the talents of myself and Terry Gunderson Shulta, featuring a myriad of different mediums. Works include: Acrylic paintings, Textiles/Fusings, Assemblage, Fiber Paper Fusion, Acrylic Monoprints, and Mixed Media. Art is available on a first come, first serve basis so come snatch up your favorite before show’s end!
The exhibit runs from July 15th to August 2nd, 2014.
The gallery is open Monday through Friday, 10am to 5pm and Saturday from 10am to 4pm. Closed Sundays and holidays.
We hope you will come peruse our beautiful artwork!
The snow has given way to lush, green plant life. The scent of flowers fill the air, sending insects into a frenzy of activity. Artists scurry about with canvases and sketchbooks tucked under their arms as they focus on which beautiful scene to memorialize first. One can’t help but to smile at the muriad of ways that summer makes us feel.
I’ve been busy at Moon Glow Art Studio creating artwork for exhibits and local charities such as the Good News Project, the Memory Project and the Center for Visual Art’s market.
Although I have been joyfully busy, I would love for the opportunity to help capture your wonderful memories with a photo session! I am available for weddings, family portraits, Senior photos and everything in between. Call today to ensure your spot! (715) 432-1441
I look forward to hearing from you!
The Sketchbook Project is an annual art journal project that anyone, artist or not, can take part in. It is run by The Art House Coop and the Brooklyn Art Library. Basically, you purchase a book, fill it with writings and artwork, then send it back where it goes on tour. The books are all cataloged and are available to the public to browse or even checkout (like an extra special library book).
I have personally taken part in two of the projects now and will very likely do more in the years to come.
While waiting for my 2014 Sketchbook Project to be digitized, I thought I would share my journal from 2012 that went on tour. Enjoy!
I am in the process of creating this site and I am NOT tech savvy (nor do I pretend to be on TV). I will be adding pics and more categories soon. I am hopeful and determined to make this blog a source of creativity for other artists and creative people out there.
Thank you in advance for your patience!
