Canton Arts District – I’m BAAAACKKK…

Canton First Friday Arts Festival

I once was a regular at Canton First Fridays. In fact, I was one of the first art vendors at the very first First Friday back in 2007. I worked out of several different studios in the Canton Arts District over the years, and then I took a break.

It’s been a couple of years, and I think I am ready to come off of my hiatus.  My presence will be less obvious, perhaps, than it has been in the past, but I am making a comeback.

In exchange for keeping their office open throughout the week and helping out with various tasks, ArtsinStark has given me a small space in their arts district office to create and share some of my artwork. It won’t be a big space, but enough to be a part of things again. I am looking forward to getting back into the Canton art scene!

This coming First Friday I will have an outdoor booth on Court Ave. Stop by and visit if you plan on being downtown! I will have all of my new Mia Meow paintings on display, as well as other artworks. The weather is supposed to be spectacular – I hope I see you there!

After First Friday, stop in and see me at the Canton Arts District office at 308 4th St. NW during the week. I look forward to seeing you there as well!

Life is an Adventure!

Creative Cardboard – A Live Participatory Art Installation!

Creative Cardboard

I mentioned the other day that I was doing a big project for this coming Canton First Friday. Here it is!

I was inspired recently by viewing some amazing artworks made of cardboard and a live installation at the Third Friday event for the 78th Street Studios in Cleveland. I decided to bring a bit of that excitement to Canton.

This Friday in Canton (July 6, 2012), I will be creating a live art installation with First Friday participants, allowing them to create with me. The artwork will be made of cardboard, however, do not think for a moment that it will be drab or dull. I am planning a wonderful and colorful experience that will be fun for all.

I will be at the Creative Ohio Gallery at 310 4th St. NW. If you are in town, stop in and create with us!
