I had a professor of art history ask, “What is your definition of art?”  After a brief moment of silence, he offered this definition, “Art is an idea made manifest.”

So, “What is your definition of art?”

Open Studio 2014

This weekend, my neighbor and artist, Joan Harvey http://www.joanharvey.com participated in Open Studio 2014.  Walking up a black top driveway hidden behind a sliding garage door appeared an eclectic ensemble of women.  Women of our time, your time, and their time expressed by creating a visual narrative through the absence of facial features, the presence of fashion and style.  1987125_003

Conversing with Joan inspired me to participate in Open Studio next year!
