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. Never too worried if it sold at shows or if it was liked by others. This might be why I have a garage full of old pottery. I intend to continue this trend.

I also intend to continue to support community arts. As an educator for the last 15 or so years, I have had a major focus on my students mental health and visual arts education. As a member of other non-profit organizations, I have focused on creating opportunities for local artists and gallery management. Being a part of Art House this past year, has given me a different perspective. I am able to learn about how this organization focuses on community. Bettering the community, creating exceptional visual arts eduction experience to local residents and giving local artists opportunities to teach and share their work through community culture nights. Set your intention and focus on yourself and your community!
