    • April 24, 2022 Water Worlds Exhibition 2022
      Water Worlds Exhibition 2022 Over the past six months or so, we have been busy creating work for our upcoming Water Worlds exhibition, opening June 10th, 2022 at the Anchor Building Gallery in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. Hosted by artist and marina owner Virginia Carstarphen, the show will be installed in a massive marina structure located on Lake Saint Clair that is usually reserved for boat storage. We are very grateful to Virginia and her husband Todd for providing this exciting opportunity for all of our artists.

      As we come to the end of August, there is that familiar feeling in the air -- the one that reminds us that the summer went by way too quickly and those back-to-school-days are right around the corner. It is reassuring that despite all the disruption from the pandemic, our calendars, schedules, rituals, and rites of passage keep moving us ahead. Even with the strange pandemic fog that we've been collectively suspended in for over a year and a half, the anticipation of seasonal change continues to keep us on track and offer new possibilities for growth and discovery.

      The Sketchbook Habit

      There is something quite enticing about a new sketchbook. From the moment it  opens, a whole new world awaits to be discovered. The blank pages suggest such promise and opportunity for visual exploration and creative play. Many pages -- many attempts -- many hours -- many thoughts.
