New art exhibit at Sprout Coworking
Michele Keir was five years old when she overheard her kindergarten teacher tell her mother that she was an artist. That was the moment she knew… “I am a creative person who loves color.” Using training from both Pratt Institute and RISD, Michele made a career as a graphic designer, product designer and potter. Many non-profit organizations have been the recipients of her talent. Most recently she raised thousands of research dollars for the American Parkinson Disease Association through the donation of hundreds of digital art paintings.
Michele has Parkinson Disease. Over the past year she has used art for personal therapy. Never before had she created art without a teacher, boss or client limiting her creative process. This endeavor has not only given her joy but has overfilled her house with art. In her attempt to have her art seen by others, Michelle recently began entering local juried exhibitions.
Join Michele for an opening of her show on Saturday, April 6th from 1 to 3 p.m. at The Gallery at Sprout CoWorking, 489 Main St. The exhibit will be on display through April 30th. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
