We have been doing our Beerhorst Family Christmas Art Show for many years now. Rain (pictured above) keeps asking when our family art show is. I asked her why she liked it so much yesterday and she told me she likes all the people that come through our house. It is fun for her to have all these visitors for the weekend coming and going.
Brenda began a morning painting ritual last winter that has bore some beautiful fruit. She had her first one person show this fall at the ultra hip HyperOptik shop on Wealthy Street. It is a powerful experience to see a whole group of her paintings all together. Her explorations of color, shape and pattern promise to make any room in your home come to life.
One of the aspects I appreciate most about our home shows are the way it gives our family a way to come together as a team. It takes a lot of planning and preparation to get the house ready to be open to the public. Cleaning, decluttering, displaying art and rearranging furniture takes everyone's cooperation and input. The result is alaways a more beautiful home vibrating with fresh creative charge.
We hope you can find time in your busy schedules to drop by this week end and pick out a special something to take away with you. Even if you can't afford to buy anything, just being here I promise will cheer your heart and ours. Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10AM-8PM, 106 Wealthy Avenue, Grand Rapids MI.
