I get asked all the time why I use the term "ARtist" for our artist partners. This is something that took me a while to understand myself WHY I couldn't let go of the idea that that was the exact word that describes "the gift" that opened up from the inside of me. When a friend visited an Alaskan Gallery, after listening to me struggle with my own explanation, he sent a pic of this very special man's poem. It was this poem that captured what I believe in my heart and will spend my days helping others to uncover in themselves... I am honored to have not only permission to use, but to alter and honor the Lowell's legacy in offerring it as the official description of our definition on an ARtist.
Thank you Mr. Norman and Libby.
a like-minded Visionary and proud ARtist
by Norman Lowell
The brush in the hand of man does not make him an artist :
But his bent toward his Creator,keenness of his eye,
Sensitivity and perception of his mind,
And the honesty of his heart.
You the viewer may be an artist by the same reasons:
What I see – you may see;
What I feel – you may feel,
For we are made of the same earth, received the same life, and walk the same land
