We are working towards our Beerhorst Family Holliday Art Show which begins this Friday at 10AM and goes through Sunday ending each night at 8PM. This is a big deal for us because we clean an declutter our house and carriage house studio and then hang the best art that we have available. This is our time to open up to the local community and we are always made richer for it. This is a tradition that has carried over now the last 15 years.
There is something very powerful about visiting an artist's studio. It is like getting infected with a good kind of cooties, the kind of infection that leads to greater creativity. I am convinced that fluffing up your creativity can actually open you up to more of what life has to offer. There is a sort of coming alive that happens to a person who lives close to art. I think art making is at its heart a spiritual practise and art that is good has been imbued with a certain spiritual potency that becomes palpable in the right context.
I would go as far to say that spending real time with good art is like putting your phone in its dock to recharge. We invite you to come by this weekend and share this time with us.
