Your Art Gallery for Home & Business Artworks
this month’s Featured Art Exhibit:
Alice Levinson: My process in art-making for VISIONS, paralleled living through the stages of the pandemic. For many months my energies were focused on the basics of health and well-being. Art-making was displaced and the studio sat empty and still. I returned to working with small stutter-steps, slowly re-entering the experience of creative work. I gradually, stitch by stitch, regained the rhythm of work and as I did it became more complex and adventurous. As always, I am inspired and guided by the cloth. The works vary in theme, technique, and palette. Each marks a step in my journey back into art-making. In the studio, as in life, I am curious and now eager for what comes next.
Jude Lobe: I’ve noticed that periods of questioning in your life are usually provoked by changes that happen around you. Maybe children moving out on their own, being laid off from a job, someone dying. I didn’t have any major changes in my life this past year. It was the routine-ness that provoked me to pause, reflect and question what life is about and how I wanted to fit in. So I decided to stop and to look inward. For fourteen days I took 30 minutes to sit and try to think of nothing. It turns out that is a hard thing to do. I let images come and go. After each session I sketched the images that appeared and flew away. The artworks in this exhibit, VISIONS, are of those images.
