Who better to explain what ArtPrize is all about than the guy who's behind it all, Rick DeVos.
I'm so pleased to be a participant in this year's event. Registration for the venues, buildings and businesses and institutions that want to exhibit the art, has already happened. The artists are registering their work now through May 27th. Beginning June 1st the venues and artists begin negotiating about what will be exhibited where. This venture truly requires participation by everyone involved ... the artists, the exhibitors, and viewing public.

Now to get back to digging through the bags of scraps to get on with my entry, "The Lake".
"The Lake" Study - 21" x 17"
My goal is to get the five sky panels composed before we move to Michigan for the summer. The two rows of foreground breaking waves and beach will get done in Studio North, as well as mounting all twenty-five panels for hanging as one BIG art quilt that measures 9 feet wide by 7 feet high. That's not as large as "Prairie Performance" installed at the Sherman Hospital in Elgin, Illinois which is 14 feet wide by 10 feet high. Whew! I get worn out just remembering the 6 months of solid work to get that one to completion.
