Exhibit: Journal 365, A Year of Creativity One Day at a Time. Corinne Woodman Gallery, 700 SW Madison Ave. 12 – 5 p.m. Free. Runs through Feb. 27. A monthly meet-up of artists yielded a gallery show. For one year local artist Lauren Ohlgren hosted a monthly session at The Arts Center of seasoned artists and maker newbies. All were interested in the challenge of making a little art every day for one year, creating a diary of their journey with the results. Feb. 2 to Feb. 27 a number of the participants will show examples of their work in the Corrine Woodman Gallery. The exhibit shows the enjoyment, fulfilment and growth that happens through a daily, yearlong process. For some this has become an essential part of their day and they have stuck with it. For them, art has become a practice, and a satisfying requisite incorporated in daily life. Participants were advised to select a particular size, and stick with it. It could be an index card size on a large ring, or postcard size in a box, but small so the task of making an artwork every day would be within reach from pocket, backpack or corner of the table. Many found that working in a small format of journals and sketchbooks was as satisfying as creating a large painting. For info, visit www.theartscenter.net.
