Let's go Artventuring!
Today is the launch of what I hope will be an interesting, informative and enjoyable blog. I've been thinking of creating one for awhile, and have made a commitment to my Art Salon group to launch it, so here it is.
Artventuring is my vision of the creative life; having adventures on the journey which is the creative process, and I love Maya Angelou's quote about treating life as art.
Artventuring also means discovering talented people around the world who are engaged in creating beautiful things. Interviews to come, at least once a week.
I'll also share information about my own work; I create mixed media shadow boxes, masks, clocks and mirrors inspired by the colors, textures and symbols of Africa. (How's that for a 10-second introduction?) I sell my work primarily through art shows and festivals. My company name is Jordan's Treasures (time for a new name; more about that in later posts), and you can see more of my work here: http://www.jordanstreasures.net/ The photo above is one of my mask wall hangings from the Ancestress Series: 'Oboto, Ancestress of Serenity'.
And, as the time approaches, I'll share the joys and challenges of being an art show promoter, as I prepare to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Festival Noir this December.
So, please join me in Artventuring; a journey of discovery.
