Capturing Shadows & Lights: West MI Artists Inspired by the CYC

Have you heard about our latest Grand Rapids art exhibit and collaboration? Starting tomorrow, October 16, through November 18, the Creative Youth Center will have an exhibit featured at Madcap Coffee’s downtown location. We are proud to feature work by West Michigan artists in response to the latest CYC Book of Explosions. Professional artists have made work reacting to student writing, and the collection is bound to be “wow!”-worthy.

A week from today, on Sunday, October 22 from 1-3 pm, there will also be a  reception. Artists will be there, as well as some light bites, and, of course, the amazing artwork. Participating artists include: Sarah Jean Anderson, Brett Colley, Alynn Guerra, Erin Vaughn Laurel, Rachel McKay, Michael Schaeffer, Elizabeth A. Trembley, Andy Budnick, Carolyn Niewiek, Julie Ridl, Meridith Ridl, and Lisa Walcott.

Not only will the beautiful art be on display for over a month, but the pieces will be for sale on a first come, first served basis. All the proceeds will be going towards CYC programming, however Madcap will be able to accept cash and check ONLY. The work is all incredible, so get out of the October rain for a minute to grab a latte and maybe take home some art!
