Art Comes Alive 2014

This year’s 2014 Art Comes Alive Ceremony was such an amazing success! With 250 artists, sponsors, jurors, family and friends joining us opening night, it was definitely a night to remember. From the delicious (and beautifully presented) food, produced by Elegant Affair, to the delightful music of Rick Wiley, the night couldn’t have been any more enjoyable. And I couldn’t possibly thank these talented artists enough, for allowing us the honor to include their works in the show, making it the absolute success that it was.
In case you weren’t able to make it to opening night, here is a sneak peak, along with an in depth look, at the story behind Art Comes Alive…

Nature Inspired Art

Recently, nature has become such an inspiration for me. It has a wonderful quality - that even on the dullest days – just being outside or simply being surrounded by nature-inspired art, can motivate you and make you feel new. And sometimes, when your in the midst of all the chaos, isn’t it nice to sit back and enjoy its beauty?

This week I’ve decided to share with you a wonderful group of artists that not only exhibit a similar passion for nature, but also took part in our recent Art Comes Alive competition. These artists, in all their talent, show a kindred appreciation for all that inspires them in the surrounding natural world.

Here is a look at this weeks nature-inspired artists featured in the current Art Comes Alive exhibition running from June 7 to July 11!
