    Join us for a conversation with Eliza Fernand, local artist whose work has involved all of our GRPS 4th graders in her newest work at the grounds of the Grand Rapids Public Museum during Project 1: Crossed Lines, a temporary public art exhibition brought to you by ArtPrize.

    Getting to Know Artist Chelsea Michal Garter

    Getting to Know Artist Chelsea Michal Garter

    You may have seen her work at Rise Authentic Baking’s new storefront, where she has a large mural of her line drawing portraits, or at one of the many shops and galleries that carry her work in the area. We talk to Chelsea about her own artwork, and the growth she’s had in her own work over the years, as well as how she feels she had no choice but to become an artist. We dive into those assumptions society has about artists—we’re sad, tortured, disorganized, starving, all cutting off our ears—and how Chelsea’s own work seems a contrast to all of those assumptions. It’s full of joy and energy, with a lyrical quality to much of her line work.

    Getting to Know Artist Lisa Price

    Getting to Know Artist Lisa Price

    Lisa could be described as a “recession success story,” and admits she started small—including writing down what she wanted in a notebook—after an interview ended with the interviewer noting that he didn’t think she wanted the job she was there to interview for, and suggested she do what she wanted to do. She explains how she made that happen, including ending up running artgoodies and vintagegoodies, and getting her work featured on huge platforms like Apartment Therapy, Better Homes and Gardens, Real Simple, The Today Show, and the list goes on.
