Artist Reception Friday February 3rd, 5-8pm

Join me, my friends, and my family alongside the very talented, Lisa Gibson at our first Friday Artist's Reception.

Holter Art Museum

Helena, MT
Art on display now through the end of February.

In process in my studio...

I've started a new series entitled, "Dear Universe."

Daily thoughts are written, much like a journal entry, onto the canvas. Following this experience, I begin to paint. Daily changes in color palette and brushstrokes uncover my inner conversation with the universe.

It might be finished, it might just be the first of many layers...

Learn more about my process via a great article Artsy Shark featured me in last week! Featured Artist Allison McGree

"Dear Universe"

The first layers of paint from my first seven days painting this series of artworks.

Connect with me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook to see how this series evolves.




Art in schools is moving right along (schedule soon for spring if you're interested)!

Would you like your students to study an artist, art-form, or historical time period? I would love to assist you.

Above, mini-artists study and create artworks inspired by the work of Edward Hopper.

February Community Art Challenge

Let your art suck. :)

Please, be more concerned with "making your unknown known"

I believe we need to get over the idea that we/art need to be perfect. It holds us back and keeps us stuck in a judgemental state.

Art can be crap. Or, it can be beautiful and inspiring...and we can and should have different opinions on that.

But that shouldn't stop us from creating. So this month, I challenge you to MAKE something (and let me know how it goes in the comments).

I think you'll be surprised how good it feels...and god knows we all need a lot more light and happiness in our lives. :)

Please share with your friends and stay in touch with me at www.allisonmcgree.com.

Until next time!

Keep art on you mind,
