ArtPrize Profiles Pouring In: Benjamin Raap & Deanna Bowdish

Have you ever said to yourself, “Man I can’t do anything right today?”

Well, that is the way Ben Raap has felt for the last five years, that is, until he heard of the Grand Rapids ArtPrize. Read more about Ben, his thoughts and his work by clicking here for a brief bio. Good luck, Ben!

Continuing to highlight ArtPrize artists exhibiting their work at DeVos Place, here we have a video of abstract artist, Deanna Bowdish. Click on http://blogs.islandpacket.com/38796 to watch Bowden speak on her work!

Deanna is owner of her own gallery in Beaufort, South Carolina, called "The Gallery". Good luck, Deanna!

ArtPrize 2010, an international art contest decided solely by public vote, officially begins Wednesday, September 22 and runs to Sunday, October 10.

Don't miss Art Fair 2010!
During ArtPrize, thousands of people will be in Grand Rapids for one reason: to see, experience and discuss art. And thanks to Art Fair, every one of them can browse or buy artwork* from over 50 registered ArtPrize artists. Held in centrally-located DeVos Place, at the heart of the ArtPrize district, Art Fair 2010 provides another exciting way for artists and the public to connect. Wander through our booths at DeVos Place to find a one-of-a-kind piece of art that speaks to you.
