ArtPrize is partnering with West Michigan Honda Dealers on the third annual Design & Drive Contest. It's a unique opportunity for artists to show their work in the heart of the ArtPrize district this fall. Submissions are open through July 31. Entrants are asked to create an original design that can be applied to a vinyl wrapped Honda vehicle for outdoor display on Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids during the 19 days of ArtPrize (September 20-October 8). Six designs will be selected to participate, and their designs put to a public vote organized by WM Honda.
Booth assignments and layout map are now available.
Fountain Street Church is sponsoring a special show in the Keeler Gallery from May 7–June 25. Titled “Everyone’s Downstream,” the show focuses on a most precious resource: water. Over 20 artists from the West Michigan area are participating.
Two of our new members, Mary Helmic and her partner, Wayne Pierce, each have works in this show. Mary’s mosaic is entitled “Walking on Thin Ice.” Wayne’s fine art photo is entitled “Power and Grace.” Larry Blovits also has an entry, entitled "Daydreaming." Congratulatons to all, and welcome to GVA, Mary and Wayne!
