Generations: Father-Daughter-Works of Art - February 24 - March 31, 2023

Featuring Katie Truemner Bruessow & Mitchell Truemner

 We are delighted to feature the large-scale paintings of this exceptionally talented family in our Bayliss gallery.

Katie Truemner Bruessow attended Kendall College of Art and Design with a BFA in Illustration and a focus on Furniture Design. After graduating Katie worked in the mass production market in both home furnishings and painting, selling to companies like Ashley Furniture and Jeffrey Alans. Painting has always been the core of Katie’s creative work. Her creative process is set free by her loose style which is often reflected in her favorite subject matter - nature.

Mitchell Truemner attended Delta College with an art concentration in the late 70s. He has been the featured artist in Traverse City’s Michigan Artist Gallery and the Traverse City’s Opera House. Truemner’s abstract paintings evoke a sense of spirituality. He is greatly influenced by the wooded areas of northern Michigan, as well as the painters Joan Mitchell and Brian Rutenburg. On exhibit through 3/31.

Designing Women is a group of traditional quilters who heeded the call to expand their creativity and explore the world of mixed media art quilts. This exhibition features the fantastical fabric art of Mary Brown, Missy Hall, Nancy Hill, Kathy Mallory, Leslie Peterson, Marcia Streeter, and June Waterman. On exhibit through 4/24.

MULTIPLICITY is an exhibition featuring the work of a family of artists.  Carol Speltz, the mother, is a photographer and painter.  Her love of nature serves as inspiration reflecting the beauty, strength, and fragility of moments in time. Daughter Alayne works in a variety of media:  painting, drawing, metal work, and photography.  She draws her inspiration from her spiritual life path and principles as much as from processes. Daughter Chandra creates luminous portraits, layered multimedia pieces, and fine art photography.

INTENTIONS: An Exhibition of Purpose and Desires

“At Creative 360, we are all about providing opportunities for all people to experience, express, and expand their creativity,” remarked Executive Director, Laura Vosejpka.  “We hope the process of creating art will help people to visualize their intention.  After all, as Jackson Pollock once said, ‘Painting is self discovery.  Every good artist paints who he is.’”
