The Saugatuck Center for the Arts will be hosting a Creativity Revealed featuring Pam Kravetz, the artist and creator of the “Not My Circus, Not My Monkees.” She will be discussing her inspiration and creative process in creating the whimsical exhibit. The event will be held Wednesday, Aug. 23 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and is free to the public. More information can be found at sc4a.org or by phone at 269-857–2399.
Kravetz is a working artist and professional educator based in Cincinnati, Ohio. She uses vibrant colors and whimsical subjects to create a silly mood with a bold statement.
Kravetz says she gains inspiration everyday. “My creativity and art is inspired by the beauty and the chaos of the everyday. From a conversation with a friend, to a cupcake I received on the way to a road trip, to a shade of MAC lipstick. Nothing is too big or too small for me to explore using my art.”
“It’s always a pleasure to see an artist’s journey,” said Kristin Armstrong, Saugatuck Center for the Arts Executive Director. “It’s a special chance to glimpse inside of someone’s thoughts and then see the final project in front of you.”
The exhibit, “Not My Monkees, Not My Circus,” is a site specific art installation which comes to life when the viewer steps inside the gallery. Featuring marionette puppets, pulley systems, and narrative quilts, the exhibit is highly interactive. It will be featured in the SCA exhibition room Aug. 25 through Oct. 7.
