Art Show Critique


Mission Art and Music - 2014

First Presbyterian Church
300 E. Grand River,  Brighton, MI
March 16, 2014  - May 10, 2014

This is a very nice show for artists run by  the First Presbyterian Church as a fund raiser for their Guatemalan Mission efforts. No entry fee is a plus feature, practically unheard of, and they only take 20﹪if you sell a work which they send to their Guatemalan Mission.

The award winners were: Lawrence Falardeau - “Gathering of Souls”; Sandy Hanert - “Pond Reflections”; Jon Nelson, “Cloud Forest Children” and Over All Best of Show went to Dean Rogers for “Flight Plans”

I enjoyed “You are the Light #2” - a shadow weave work by Gisela Bosch, “Verdant Pond ” by Sandy Hanert and a giclee work, “Approaching Spring” by Phil Gibbon.

A BONUS at the reception was the entertainment choreographed by Lori Fithian of Drummunity of Ann Arbor, MI, ( a percussion performance done by anyone who was at the reception.  There were Seniors, Moms and Dads, Teenagers, and even small Children. It was truly amazing to see this multi-generational group, without any expertise, following Lori as she led them through many different rhythms using drums, and other things one can bang on.  I even saw what looked like pieces of corrugated piping (a smaller version of what you buy for your downspouts) that was available to run a stick along it’s side. Anything to make noise!
