I am the invited artist for American Craft Week, October 6-15, at Absolute Gallery, 307 East Grand River Avenue, Lansing, MI 48906 (Absolute)! I am so excited!! Here is an opportunity to celebrate the wonders of American craft. Every day thousands of American artists share their vision and talent by producing amazing hand-made decorative and functional objects. And every day thousands of craft retailers share their love of these items by displaying, promoting and selling them. As one craft artist put it, “this is the creative economy!” I ask you to join us in publicizing, educating and displaying American Craft for ten days each October. Join the national celebration of American Craft! Handmade craft is original, beautiful and enduring, so let’s tell the world!
I will be demonstrating the basics of Zentangle, a peaceful, meditative drawing process of producing abstract patterns. Try it–you’ll like it! Join me on Saturday and Sunday, October 7 & 8, 1:00-4:00PM, or Friday, October 13, 4:30-7:00PM. My Zentangle inspired art will also be on display in the Gallery. NOTE: I had so much fun today (October 8th) showing folks how to start with Zentangle!! Good Work students!
