Egg Harbor, Wis. (December 7, 2021) – As we enter into this winter of unknowns and isolation for many, this time in history can be seen as a gift as much as a struggle, and within this liminal, in-between space is the dormant potential for creative exploration. If the feeling of falling “Between the Cracks” speaks to you, Public Arts Initiative (PAI) of Egg Harbor and the Kress Pavilion invite you to take part in a group exhibition at the Kress Pavilion location in Egg Harbor.
The group show “Between the Cracks – The Gift of Liminality” is an exploration into creative potential, with two free Virtual (Zoom) Workshops led by Door County artist and educator Dawn Patel. Participants will create and display a work of art for a 3-month exhibit beginning March 2021. All media will be considered (with some limitations for space). The workshop will utilize visualization, automatic writing and drawing as well as meditation of dream and consciousness exploration. Absolute beginners as well as experienced artists are encouraged to join.
Dawn Patel is the artist and clothing creator behind Brilliant Stranger in Egg Harbor and on Etsy.com. Patel has over 30 years of experience creating, teaching and exhibiting art, as well as developing her own method and practice of embodied art making. Past teaching experience with Youth through Adults include Milwaukee Art Museum, University of WI Milwaukee, Northland College, the Chas. A. Wustum Art Museum and Peninsula School of the Arts. She has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards and most recently served as an artist in residence in Puebla, Mexico with the Arquetopia Institute.
Instructor Dawn Patel recommends that artists attend both of the free Virtual (Zoom) Workshops on January 20 & 23, 10am-Noon, but recordings will be available through the end of February 2021. Artists should supply their own tools and equipment. If needed, computer/WIFI access will be available at the Kress Pavilion during workshop times. Please call to reserve your computer space at 920-868-3334, x3.
