The Holland Area Arts Council presents the sixth annual MI Arts: All Michigan All Media Visual Arts Competition this fall.
Over 50 artists from across the state submitted over 100 pieces in mediums spanning two dimensional and three dimensional art.
The Arts Council selected Tom Duimstra and Michael Peoples as the jurors. Tom Duimstra manipulates and re-presents ubiquitous materials and discarded objects in new contexts. He strives to create a balance of looking and responding intended to draw viewers into further contemplation. Michael Peoples is a multidisciplinary artist toying with repetition, the transformation of material and the significance of numbers, color and subject in order to create an emotional experience. Both Tom and Michael currently reside in West Michigan and were recently featured in a uniquely cohesive exhibit, Split, at the Holland Area Arts Council.
Fifty-one pieces were selected, including acrylic, oil and watercolor paintings, wood and ceramics sculptures, photographs, pastel drawings, prints and textiles.
MI Arts, an exhibition showcasing many of the best in Michigan, will open with an award ceremony on Friday, September 9th at 6 p.m. The opening is free and open to the public and is a great opportunity for community members to meet regional artists! Three thousand dollars in awards will be given to first, second and third place, honorable mentions and memorial awards.
