It is with great regret and sadness that the leadership team for Celebration of Creativity Art Show and Sale has decided to cancel the 2021 art show. The leadership team felt it was the most responsible thing to do given the health of the community, volunteers, and most of all the artists.
We encourage artists to apply for our 2022 art show, to be held March 3-6, 2022, and check back through our Celebration of Creativity website for any updates. As we go forward, we hope that the 2022 art show will be as beautiful as past shows and invite artists to be creative once more.
The Art Leadership for the Celebration of Creativity
The Celebration of Creativity Fine Art Exhibit & Sale will return March 3rd – 6th, 2022.

Sandy Evans “I love the freedom and spontaneity acrylic gives me as I develop each piece of art. I start with color as I pour or mix, usually using bright, vibrant hues and letting them speak for me.”
Thomas Willing “Working with both native and exotic species of woods, I seek to find the visual magic within the form of each piece of timber that is waiting to be revealed.”
Shelly Durica-Laiche “I collect salvaged material from steel yards, from the side of the road, through my travels or by donation. Scrap metal has an embedded history and character that folds into each design. I’m inspired by the unique shapes of these found treasures.”
Sandy Visse “My children are grown and gone and still I play with clay, often now with my grandchildren. Most of my work is figurative and whimsical in nature as my love of animals and folk art find expression in my sculptures.”
“Photography is for me a dance with nature. It is the immersion in a landscape and the sense of being lost in the moment, where the passing of time goes unnoticed. It is the serendipity of capturing a moment in time that becomes a timeless moment.”
Denise Joy McFadden “My goal is to paint directly, freshly, and simply onto the dampened paper and let the water do the work. I enjoy watching the colors mingle, drip, and separate in unexpected ways.”
