Inside the Nitty Gritty
– Commercial Art and the Creative Process
Mixed-Media Creations by Sarah-Lee Terrat
The Gallery at River Arts unveils Inside the Nitty Gritty – Commercial Art and the Creative Process, a mixed-media exhibition by Sarah-Lee Terrat, March 5th – April 29, 2015 at the River Arts Center in Morrisville. There will be a reception Thursday, March 5th, 5:00 – 7:00p.m. with an artist talk at 6p.m.
This exhibit offers viewers the unique experience of exploring the creative process as it relates to design, illustration and public art. Revealing artist as builder, Terrat illustrates artistic vision and how it evolves into the final product through influences of site constraints, client input, budgets and timelines. Presenting the “bone structure” of a project from sketches to final product, the show includes illustration, murals, painting, toys and sculpture.
