Description

ART COLONY ”An art colony, also known as an artists' colony, can be defined two ways. Its most liberal description refers to the organic congregation of artists in towns, villages & rural areas, often drawn by areas natural beauty, the prior existence of other artists or art schools there, & a lower cost of living. More commonly, the term refers to the guest-host model of a mission-driven planned community, which administers a formal process for awarding artist residencies. in the latter case, a typical mission might include providing artists with the time, space & support to create; fostering community among artists; & providing arts education (lectures, workshops) to the public.” Wikipedia This is an original fabric / mixed media collage that was created by me, Bonny Gorsuch in St. Helens, Oregon, USA.
