ART COLLABORATION - A wonderful learning experience not to be missed

ART COLLABORATION

There are many types of collaboration in Art. In fact there are as many forms of collaboration as there are artists. I have a friend that collaborates with her partner who is a musician, he plays music and she creates a painting inspired by it in front of an audience. I also follow a stunning blog by Alissa Burke who recently posted about collaborating with her husband on an art work: See the blog here. These are just two examples.

Last year my local gallery had an exhibition of collaborative art with the only criteria being that the piece had was 12" x 12" and collaborated on by at least two different generations. You didn't have to be part of the same family or even in the same country. You could even do things like a child or grandparent being the subject of the painting that another generation painted. One artists took one of his two year olds scribbles and built on it. I collaborated with my octogenarian mother, wo is not an artist, but is very creative. Below are some of the works we exhibited last year.

Lake Country Art Gallery has made the exhibition an annual event. I am already talking with a special artist friend about collaborating on a few pieces. The canvas can be 12", 16" or 24" square and I can't wait to create larger this time.
