Creativity Takes Courage!
Whether you are just starting to dabble in the arts or an established artist, one of the most difficult things to do is allow yourself to express yourself creatively. Do you remember the last time you painted or when you first started? It was likely a challenge to be inspired to start a something new and also a learning curve at the same time.
This month, we have had the pleasure of working with Haida Gwaii artist Marilyn McKee. A passionate artist, she really has been courageous in her practise. Marilyn is working with traditional Haida imagery, but is one of the only Haida Gwaii female carvers who experiments with new images in her pieces. Often, she uses fairies in her work and integrates very feminine symbols in a traditionally male dominated arena.
As we grow as people, we want to be sure that we foster our creative outlets, whatever they may be. If you are just starting to paint or be creative, be sure to keep going and surround yourself with people who inspire, motivate and encourage you! You never know what you will end up creating and ultimately, that is the fun of letting go!
We invite you to join us for the artist reception this evening from 4:00-9:00PM. Complimentary tea and meet the artist.
