Creativity Q+A LIVE with Mark Mehaffey

February 25, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


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. The first, 2023 conversation is February 25, 11 am with Leelanau County resident Mark Mehaffey. The program is free. No reservations are required. Doors open at 10:30 am.

Mehaffey is an artist whose creative work refuses to be shoehorned into tidy boxes. He moves fluidly between representing the visible world, and working with not-so-representational subjects: marks, lines, scratches, color stories. His practice is less focused on “subjects” than it is on ideas, and “what-if?”. Working primarily in water-based media, Mehaffey paints, draws, collages, and taught art in the public school for 30 years.

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. Mehaffey’s conversation was published in December 2022. To read it, and all the Creativity Q+A interviews, go to The GAAC is located at 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.
