Here is Australian Julie Bray sharing her watercolors. She also let us all experience a visualization and then make art with it.
Then we met our youngest salon guest: 9 year old local artista Katharina. She shared a bunch of work in different mediums with the group. This is a confident, articulate and creative young lady, who won everyone over immediately when she informed us this that she loves to create from her imagination and simply follows her intuition without thinking too hard. She is also quite disciplined, drawing every day. Her confidence in her belief she will become a famous artist was awe-inspiring. I have no doubt she will. After all---first professional art exhibit at age 9!
The theme of the evening was "Play" and all artists addressed how play informs and affects the work. How without play, it really isn't fun. It's all play really!
As Agnes de Mille once said, “The artist never entirely knows — We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”
Here's to leaps in the dark.
See you at the final exhibition MARCH 2!
