Art Beat with Rachel Miller of Wellspring Cori Terry & Dancers
Most artists pick a medium and then pursue excellence in it. But Anne Mehring calls herself a perennial student of many arts. Every Friday you’ll find her working in copper at a studio at Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. On another day she may be working in a studio in Mattawan, creating glass objects. Or she may stay home and weave on a loom.
Whether with pen or camera, Kaitlin LaMoine Martin has an eye for the world as it is. She’s not good at editing out wrinkles and shadows on faces, and she doesn’t want to be. The young artist finds beauty in the real, not plastic imitation.
