There is something magical that happens when artists get together in a friendly group and make art, but I am not exactly sure what it is. It might be synergy; it might be the proverbial mutual admiration society at work; it might be the fun of seeing what everyone is doing; it might be the relief of feeling it’s-okay-to-relax-because-they-will-understand-how-I-can-be-so-excited-about-this-(insane)-new-project; it might be the simple act of meeting together in real life doing an activity we all enjoy — good times!
Do you know what it is? Could it be as simple and yet as complex as appreciating and participating in a community?
What ever ” it” is, I hope you are finding some “community” and support for what you do. For example, I am enjoying being part of a group of artists exploring the concept and reality of community supported art — and preparing for a group show in September.
Besides in real life, there are fun opportunities to “join in” with other artists on the internet. At the risk of becoming a challenge junkie, I am participating in another secret color challenge with Jordan Hill (aka @JellyBeansII on Twitter) of The Creative Artist!
Three pieces, ten days time, all to be revealed on July 16th. We have added a cool new twist for this iteration and I am curious to see how it works out. Oh the suspense!
and ps if you want in, let me know.
