Our Amazing Community

On Friday, January 26th Art House Inc. will be holding our first Community Culture Night of the new year, as well as my first Community Culture Night as an Art House Inc. Intern. We are excited to welcome esteemed artist and performer Robin VanLear to our studio during this event. Our Artist Lecture Series that is offered on a quarterly basis strives to bring in prominent members of the art community to talk about their journey, how art affects their lives, and many other interesting topics. Robin VanLear, although not a Cleveland native, has taken Northeast Ohio by storm since she arrived here in 1989. Born in Cambridge, MA, VanLear received her MFA in Sculpture and Performance Art from UC

Jeannie Oakar's thoughts

This year, I want to take the time to work on my own artwork and get back to doing pottery. I am making a commitment to myself to be more mindful, be more present in the moment and to recognize that doing my art is good for my soul. With the realization that pottery has been a self regulating tool that I have used my entire life, it is a personal commitment that I will make! I have always done my art for myself.

They agreed and disagreed where it was safe and not safe to go. They questioned the logic of demolition as a solution to urban blight and discussed practical solutions to real problems. Underlying the volley of light-hearted banter and outright jokes ran a blade of insight regarding boundaries, race, politics, and human nature. This footage was combined with

War on Art

This is the abbreviated title of a book by Steven Pressfield in which he discusses Resistance: resistance to the creative process and any cause that calls us. It is a toxic force that is experienced as fear. Fear precipitates flight. An underlying connection to this theory is the dismissive attitude that continues to persist towards the deep value of the Arts. Harvard PHDs still brush Art off as touchy-feely, in spite of ever mounting statistics that reveal how exposure to the Arts and immersion through Art Education raises a community’s sense of well-being and results in students who are more engaged, confident, and are better able to succeed in school and beyond.
