We are very excited to share the creations that were made during CREATIVE CONVERSATIONS Pen Pals Project Session #2 ~ From Dec. 22nd to Jan. 4th 2021
Artists exchanged creations in a back and forth creative expression over the Holidays. Participants were challenged to incorporate blue, silver, and white…or thier interpretations of this guide.
With only 24 to 48 hours as the turnaround goal, new concepts were incorporated using inspiration from a creative response sent by their Pen Pal.
The Creative Pen Pal Journey reveals much more than artistic pieces alone ~ shared experiences and friendships blossom along the way too. Like connecting with a great piece of art or maybe a song, connecting with someone new can be exciting, daring, challenging, surprising, comforting, provocative, and awakening.
On this journey together participants grow as creatives ~ experiencing a variety of emotions and insights about their own creative process and learning about their match.
For professional or emerging artist participants, this project serves as an interesting chance to develop and expand in their artistic discipline or to try a new medium.
For others, having a Creative Pen Pal is a much needed break from the social isolation that COVID 19 brings, especially over the Holidays.
Still, for many it’s an excersize in personal growth ~ trusting a stranger to contribute to a shared goal can be a challenge. Waiting for a response can be exciting as much as it can be nerve-racking. But, something beautiful begins to grow as the creative conversation takes on a life of its own and a new unspoken understanding and connection emerges.
All this culminates in a linear exhibit and an intimate private artist group chat.
Whether participants have joined this project with hopes of growing connectivity or personally, I believe that growth of any kind is a wonderful thing!
Please enjoy the exhibit.
