The Art of Coming Undone Exhibition

The Art of Coming Undone Exhibition

  • Michigan Artists Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Michigan Artists Gallery’s spring exhibition will include over 30 artists. Each artist will interpret Daniel Belardinelli’s painting, “The Art of Coming Undone,” in their media and style. Daniel is a well known New York outsider artist who boldly takes on challenging subject matter with both humor and humanity.

For this exhibition, I am creating a 7-piece vertical installation with each piece being a 7”x7” square. The work is composed of hundreds of 1” squares cut out from a single, discarded, wooden chair.

This is the new, rescheduled date for An Evening of Art Chat.

An Evening of Art Chat (hosted and moderated by Brian Schorn)  is an opportunity to gather as a group to share and discuss artwork of all kinds. For example, you may ask specific questions about a piece of art that you are working on, share a famous artwork that you enjoy, or ask a general question about how to interpret contemporary art. Art Chat is an open, safe environment intended to provide constructive criticism, support and understanding. Please bring a piece of art that you would like to share with the group. It may be your own work-in-progress or a completed work. If you are not an artist with your own art, please bring someone else's art or a printed example of any other artwork (famous, infamous or somewhere in between).

Anyone with an interest in art is encouraged to attend.
Refreshments will be served.
