Our Beerhorst Spring Family Art Show is May 4,5 & 6 and goes from 10AM-8PM every day. We have been doing these shows for several years now and always find them to be a great way to reconnect with our community and share our creative output at the same time. Making art is one half, sharing it with others is the other. Some times I almost think that the work doesn't really come alive until it is being shared with some one.
I have not worked with a commercial gallery since 2009 when I left Ann Nathan Gallery in Chicago after 16 years. I eventually got tired of bringing all my best work to Chicago. At a certain point I realized I wanted to begin to invest in our own local art community right here and see where it could go. Interestingly it was the same year Rick DeVos announced ArtPrize. I continue to be encouraged by so much of what is happening here right now like UICA, GRAM, 5x5 and Site Lab to name a few really powerful shakers and movers in the local scene.
Consider coming out to our show for that first weekend of May. With out your participation it will be a little less than what it could be. Your presence and your point of view is important part of this event reaching its full potential.
