I’m making pie, but it’s at the ‘really boring to look at’ stage right now. Let’s talk about something more interesting, shall we?
Art (and craft) never exists in a vacuum, and the art of Grumpy Pie is no exception. While I spend my creative energy throwing fruit at spices and seeing what sticks, the very talented gentlemen of my household tend to be a little more traditionally ‘artistic.’
At New Year’s, Mr. Pie & I made the same resolution: Make More Things. Turns out, I made a lot of pie, and some knits for babies, and a lot of mess in my kitchen, all without any particular sense of schedule (except the pie). He took a different approach, and has endeavored to produce something tangible every month. This month’s undertaking: The 30 Day Art Challenge.
The challenge? Thirty days, thirty pieces of art. At the end of 30 days, the finished canvasses are returned to T-K Artist’s Lofts, and hung in a group show. Mr. Pie and my brother are both doing it, which means that my house is a big old mess of canvasses and paints, and every day I’m worried that the dog is going to cause a disaster by taking out someone’s easel.
The show opens December 1, during Seattle’s First Thursday Pioneer Square Art Walk. Put it on your calendars! This year has seen a huge number of participants, and every piece of art they produce will be available for a flat price ($40, I think). Please come out and support your local artists!
