The first exhibit of 2020 season features the work of artists Anita Brett of East Lansing, Candace Miller of Lansing, Xavier of Owosso and sixteen Flint Artist Market members.

February 4 through March 15

Brett’s earliest works include commissioned watercolor portraits that now span the world. She participates in several select art fairs and is represented by galleries across the state of Michigan. Brett calls herself a sensitive artist who works in oils, watercolor, encaustic paintings and is always in pursuit of new subject matters and art mediums.

Miller, a sculptor for over 30 years, creates mostly figurative works in paper mache, resin, wood and clay. She also makes assemblages by combining found objects with her sculpted pieces. Miller is a narrative artist who combines elements of storytelling, humor and fantasy and  hopes her work will spark understanding and dialog with the viewer.

Enjoying a professional career in studio art, Owosso’s Xavier chooses to draw people, or rather the essence of people because they are the most exciting subject. He tries to achieve a harmony or tension within the interactions of subject matter and texture. Line, shape, value and color seem to create themselves while he is working and he lets them flow naturally into a visual form.

The Flint Artist Market (FAM) is composed of 20 artists (16 are displaying work in the exhibit) working in a wide variety of art media. The members are actively producing art, have current resumes and are regularly accepted into juried competitions. Together they exhibit in select galleries throughout Michigan. FAM believes it is important to support the arts, especially in our community.
