How do artists think, work, and practice? Those questions are explored during Creativity Q+A LIVE, a series of conversations with Northern Michigan artists at the Glen Arbor Arts Center. On September 30, 1 pm Leelanau County artist Meg Staley talks about her practice with Sarah Bearup-Neal, GAAC gallery manager. The program is free. No reservations are required. Doors open at noon.
Meg Staley hand builds women’s clothing. Each piece is a composition that allows her to bring to it the myriad surface design techniques that make up her distinctive visual vocabulary. This is not, however, a story about fashion, but a life-long journey that uses clothing as an expressive tool.
Creativity Q+A LIVE is an offshoot of the GAAC’s online feature, Creativity Q+A. Since 2020, the GAAC has published monthly, long-form interviews that dig into artists’ creative practices. Staley’s conversation was published in June 2022. To read it, and all the Creativity Q+A interviews, go to GlenArborArt.org / ARTISTS. The GAAC is located at 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.
