The connection between the creative process of art-making and personal happiness is by no means a new idea. The creative process is itself a source of joy for most people that many tapped into during the pandemic. With new creative powers, we're also better able to solve the little problems that beset us daily. As more people pick up a paintbrush, they look to established artists for positive inspiration. The artists featured in this month’s exhibition, “Light On Your Feet”, embody creative elements that uplift and inspire us through application, composition, color, and more.
