It all got more real for me today. ArtPrize 2014 will be starting later this month, and I dropped off my photograph today at The Womens City Club for installation. The ballroom has been converted into a gallery where 52 artists will be showing this year.
I worked on location at a house in Holland (Michigan) this week. I loved this old Victorian which was completely renovated to feature this custom made spiral suitcase. I couldn’t resist shooting this while the assistant took a minute to stretch his legs.
What a nice evening it has been to visit The Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts. The Festival of the Arts exhibit opening party was tonight, and it was great. I am honored to be a participating artist. The show runs through August 17. The UICA is at Division and Fulton in Grand Rapids, MI.
I am honored and excited to annonce that my photograph, ‘North’, will be showing this fall at The Women’s City Club for ArtPrize 2014. ArtPrize runs from September 24 – October 12, 2014 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
We decided to visit Northern Michigan this week since my husband and I haven’t been up that way in a very long time. We are visiting Sault Saint Marie (about 6 hours north of Grand Rapids in the Upper Penninsula) today and I have been loving the character of the old downtown area. There are many old signs that I can’t help but photograph. The one above is my favorite.
My daughter and I like to take walks this time of year when the weather starts to (finally) warm up. Besides the snow melting this is a sure sign that Spring is on its way.
