MULTIPLICITY

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.’”
