These measure 12 inches.  17 seats available for this workshop, $26 per ticket.  All materials are included.  You are welcome to bring your favorite snacks & beverages.

YAY! Articipate’s fundraiser recipient, “Alternatives For Girls” received $701 of support. A big THANK YOU for your contributions, as a painter and/or a buyer!

 

2020 focus for Articipate is:

LESS IS MORE SIGN
try our new small canvas approach

SMALL canvases result in…

LESS: pressure to succeed, time, expense, expectations, emotional involvement, ego

Leads to MORE: practice, risk taking & experimentation, paintings (successes AND failures), confidence, enthusiasm & fun

 

Inside/Outside; Art and You

Idelle Hammond-Sass

August 24, 1:30-4:30pm. Combine drawing and other art media with reflective writing to explore our relationships to the world outside-a sometimes demanding and turbulent world, and how it affects and interacts with our personal /inner world. How do we visually express boundaries between the inside and outside, notice what grounds us and keeps us centered and able to react from a place of wholeness?

We will use the Open Studio Process, a simple three stage process of art and writing. This process can be used as a daily practice such as journaling or as part of an art practice or to simply to notice what is needing our attention.

Aegean Light, Robert Zeichner

August 23, from 6:00 pm.  Artist reception and exhibition of 16 new photographs by Robert A. Zeichner, made in the spring of 2019 on three islands in the Cyclades – Sifnos, Milos, and Paros.  While the whitewashed buildings clinging to the hillsides and narrow alleys winding through tiny villages are commonplace in this part of Greece, every island in the Aegean has its own personality.  These images try to capture some of those subtleties played out under a quality of light that is difficult to describe.  You just have to experience it.

Please join us for an artist reception with refreshments on Friday evening, August 23, from 6:00-8:30pm  at the Articipate Gallery, 3833 12 Mile Rd. Berkley, MI 48072
