Artists find ‘A HeArt’s Desire’ through collaborative exhibit|
A HeArt's Desire: A Journey of Artistic Discovery presented by Oakland County Special Needs Artists will be exhibited in Huron Valley Council for the Arts’ gallery space in June and July.
The collaboration of different mediums by special needs artists will be featured at an opening “meet the artists” reception on Friday, June 7 from 7-9 p.m. at HVCA, 205 W. Livingston Road in Highland.
The group of artists previously was featured in The Oakland Press for painting and donating bowls for the Empty Bowls Project.
Carmen Kennedy, exhibit coordinator, explained that the two groups of artists she works with include Clarkston Club Create and MORC studios; each group of artists meets twice monthly. They are all over 18 “and they choose to be creative and attend art classes.”
Kennedy said the artists from each group collaborated together on pieces, including working with large scale canvases using acrylic pouring techniques to create abstract paintings. They also worked on spray painting techniques on large scale canvases as well as on large scale mosaics that were fused, either in the form of panels or free form vases.
Gallery hours for A HeArt's Desire: A Journey of Artistic Discovery presented by Oakland County Special Needs Artists will be from 1-5 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays from June 5 through July 27.
