October Art Show-Self-Care Through (Imperfect) Creative Expression by Tina Brinks
October 3 - October 31
We are pleased to present the October Art Show-Self-Care Through (Imperfect) Creative Expression by our very own Tina Brinks!
The show is made up of pieces using different techniques, materials and tools. The pieces express the artist’s interest at various moments in her life and making them helped her navigate her busy life. That is why the pieces are not for sale. They are made because it was enjoyable to do so and are expression of herself. The pieces are also an invitation to try out, to let go of control, to get inspired, to play, to get curious and to ask questions. She hopes the viewer will find inspiration to explore. And since she works at the bookstore, she is available for any conversation you would like to have regarding the show during regular business hours.
Tina has called Webster home since 2002 and after taking care of her family she now works part time at Booklovers’ Gourmet. This is her first art show, and it shows an overview of different tools, techniques and materials used to explore, create and play. For her, creating is first and foremost a process that connects the heart, hand and head and results in a sense of calmness and peace. Especially color, sound and movement are areas of interest. She is always learning and loves to read and hear about different artists, art styles and their creative process. These resources are very inspiring for her and have expanded her horizon in many, many ways.
She learned to knit, crochet and embroider at a young age from her mother and grandmother and was later on blessed with a very creative mother-in-law as well. She was encouraged to try out new things and enjoy the process of making.
