Art Exhibition: Beautiful Mess: the joyful & random discovery of the artistic process

to October 31st. This exhibition will allow the public access to this usually private process of creation, and allows a rare opportunity of peeking behind the curtain so to speak, beyond the final piece of art. Your artist statement will invite the viewer to gain further insight on what can happen when someone creates art–and how the process itself is artistic. This show aims to create a sense of intimacy between the artist and the public.

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” – Scott Adams

Art Exhibition: Three, Two, One – Create

The exhibit, “Three, Two, One – Create” is a play on words, but has a larger meaning for this show. There are three artists (Don Zeghers, Krista Zeghers and Coreen Zerr) using two artistic mediums (photography and fibre art) in one exhibit to depict the creative process. Each of the pieces in “Three, Two, One – Create” involves a collaboration between the artists.
