Artists have many careers to choose from

(Continued)

Have you ever seen an ad that simply stayed in your memory, sometimes since you were a child? Creating an advertisement requires the artist to create templates to portray each scene of the ad.

Pottery making requires basic practice, some testing and re-testing, a personal workshop, or much available workshop, plus publicity. For pottery makers to be successful, their creations should be aesthetically appealing. Their designs could be unconventional in order to attract the customers they are seeking.

Sculpting has always been an exciting and most beautiful style of art. Sculptors can create what is asked of them or use their own imagination. They should also exhibit their work online or through gallery exhibitions.

If you have the ability to use your eccentric and artistic abilities to create extraordinary designs, then furniture design may be in your future. Many pieces of furniture being designed today are eco-friendly.

Origami art is just not for children. There are a handful or origami artists around the world who are revolutionizing the way a piece of paper can be made into an absolutely delightful piece of art.

There are other art careers not listed here, and they are many. There is no simple definition of an artist today, as you can see from the list above. I’ll drink tea to that!

Art activities

And now presenting news from the organization sponsoring this article, the Danville Art League.

— We are sponsoring The Town and Country Art Show and the Sharon Schmitz Regional Open Art Competition beginning Tuesday and running through March 27.

This is a feast for the eyes when you consider the fact that there are so many types of art going to be shown. There should not be a soul who walks away without seeing something he or she loves. Age wise, there will be children to adults entering the two shows. The public is certainly welcome, as they have always been in the past when our show was held at the Danville Village Mall. Please, make this a family time to come and see the visual art that Danville and the surrounding area have to offer.
