    Transformational Power of ART with Guest Artist Destanne Norris E017

    Community work is all about connection and conversations that unite people. Connections that are made are spontaneous and reveal similarities in passion work that supports the lives we lead. Life is a river and we all paddle those currents in different and similar ways.  Loughery and Norris discover deep loss and great joy while enjoying the sun on the digital scaffolding of AR:T ROUTE RADIO.

    The Languages that Art Speaks with Guest Artist David Lloyd Wilson E016

    On this episode of AR:T ROUTE Radio #ARTTALKS, Michelle and David connect on the languages that art speaks.  David Wilson is a member of the Okanagan Nation and the winner of the BC Achievement Awards in Aboriginal Art for 2012.  Wilson’s work speaks of translation and the origins of the Okanagan. The work portrays movement and identity brilliantly created in paint. Speaking of the importance of art to keep us all creative and young is an important message in his words and his contemporary yet ancient icon art.

    Brushstrokes of Community with Guest Artist Val Trevis E015

    Brushstrokes of Community with Guest Artist Val Trevis E015

    In this episode of AR:T ROUTE Radio Loughery hopes to share the importance of the connections we make and the words we write. Placing intention and collaboration in a place that supports it, by keeping a creative life. 

    Michelle and her guest Artist/Writer Val Trevis talk volunteering, community and living artful lives. An inspiring conversation of women who have worked in the same community for years, and both look at community as an opportunity to create legacies and the importance of art in life’s healing journeys.

    An authentic look at life and death in the painting of words in healing acts of life through art and writing. Val speaks on the dedication she has to writing for her mother who sacrificed her own writing for motherhood.

    Queen of the Canadian Highways Guest Lorrie Fleming E014

    As Michelle and Lorrie discuss their passion for highway culture and the knowledge that our roots are steeped by the ones who have passed before us.  Pour a cup of tea and see the road, hear the art on this episode of AR:T Route Radio.


    Lorrie states, "the world is brilliantly coloured by Michelle's motivation and her believing in me and the power of purpose of a multi-generational society that's strengthened by the foundation of which only our elders can convey.


    Here's to Art Route Blue weaved into a multi-coloured security blanket keeping us warm & thriving in a circle of hope … as we rebuild our routes with roots. 


     


    Lorrie Fleming - “My realization that 'age is a gift to humanity'!  I turned 70 in May and this milestone hangs heavily on my personal feeling of self-worth. But then I saw the gift. The wisdom that our elders carry to society is priceless.

    Turning the Lens with Guest Artist aj Jaeger E013

    Turning the Lens with Guest Artist aj Jaeger E013

    Artists as patrons and wise women wayfinders.


    Michelle and aj Jaeger discuss the hidden lens of community work on this revealing and honest episode of AR:T ROUTE Radio.  The space between the arts and community infrastructure systems is historically difficult to be made visible in civic budgets.   A discussion how community art education is needed to reveal the value of the social economics of community art civic infrastructure work. The two successful artists touch how artists need to have a multitude of skills in the their art tool belts.


     


    Artist aj Jaeger ... as a sculptor and painter, I am inspired by rich colours and distinctive textures that tell a meaningful story. I am a passionate advocate in the local art community, teaching mixed media, working with collage in inventive, creative ways in my workshops, and designing successful art exhibitions.

Dragonsongbird ,

Brilliant artists. Lovely stories.

I enjoy every episode of this podcast! Sometimes I make a coffee and sit with a Michelle and her guest, as she suggests. Other times I take them for a walk with me. But I learn something wonderful in every visit. As a “wannabe” visual artist I highly appreciate the humanity and honesty all these artists bring to the table!

Keep these stories coming!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
