Artful Living

Space is the breath of art.” – Frank Lloyd Wright

Artful Living | creativity in motion

When I saw that Seth Apter put out a call for his new online collaboration Living with Art, I thought taking a virtual tour into artist’s homes and spaces to see and learn how they live with art was a fabulous idea!   Every Thursday over on Seth’s blog The Altered Page, a group of different 7 artists are featured with a photograph that captures his inspiring concept.

  The project just revealed its second week of artists (including yours truly!) and it’s already been so exciting to see what each artist has contributed and the artful living surrounding their physical space.  Whether it’s personal art, collected art, found & curated objects, or how works are displayed within the room, on a wall, shelf, furniture piece, or frame…. it is a beautiful and creatively stimulating sight to behold…. each celebrating a unique creative style & incarnation.

You can take in the series for yourself here.  And….if you are interested in contributing your own Living with Art capture, the project is still open to new submissions.

Expanding on the theme of Artful Living, here are some my favorite musings that also inspires this:

I’m eager to see (and continue to be inspired by) more Living with Art artists & their captures as new posts in the Altered Page’s series goes live every week!  Thank you Seth and all the participants- I wish we could do a real-life tour of all these spaces! 🙂
