Yes! Articipate is OPEN!

Art is invincible and ageless because self expression is a human need. Art is one venue that fulfills that need.  Want to learn more about a visual language? Check out our classes, or take a private lesson. Of course, the world has changed and so has Articipate.  We have dramatically reduced our class size to only six, so that students can feel comfortable as they learn and practice. Please support Articipate and yourself by signing up for an art adventure!

Art Exhibition: Lockdown!

(Online Gallery Here)

Finding beauty in the mundane

and inspiration out of boredom

Liz Frankland’s paintings, set in the mid 20th century, convey human isolation and a longing for togetherness with additional themes of travel and progress. The slow pace of days during lock down lead to further refinement of a salient feature of her work; the fine line between accuracy and expressiveness.

Ron Shelton’s craftsmanship has transformed what’s on-hand materials into sculptural art with a musical theme.

This exhibition is viewable in Articipate’s gallery by appointment.  (248-812-9022)

A closing reception for the artists will take place on Friday, August 14th, 6:00-8:00pm.

Artist Reception: Liz Frankland

June 19, 6:00-8:00pm.  Whether it’s in person or virtually, Articipate will be holding an artist reception for Liz Frankland. Liz works primarily with acrylics on canvas in a loose but realistic style.  Everyday spaces, figures that resonate with a mid-century aesthetic; and interiors filled with light and shadow are some of the subject matter which drives her work.  Join us for this long anticipated community art celebration June 19, 6:00-8:00pm.

Everyday Mandalas

Spend a little time getting centered by creating a new design.  Start at the center and work your way around and out.  Add some words for self expression. Make a collection of them, or send them to your friends. One day they’ll remind you of how you coped during the Covid 19 pandemic by creating art.
