If you have ever worked with a graphic designer, you have probably been amazed at their ability to creatively represent a message. Their days are spent using their eye for detail and ability to create fun, sophisticated graphics for other people’s messages.
You may have heard some creative people talk about how sometimes it is hard to “turn off.” They are constantly having ideas for projects and new things they want to try. It kind of makes you wonder what graphic designers do to capture ideas that are their own and not for a client.
Blur, an exhibition of graphic design and art, opening this week at ArtReach St. Croix will give you a glimpse at the creative dichotomy of some of the St. Croix Valley’s graphic designers. In this exhibition, the line between “day job” and avocation is blurred. Vignettes will showcase the different creative outlets of six artists and how a design background can influence other media (or visa versa).
Stop by ArtReach and see the work of Dan Paulus, David Swanson, Jean Van Tatenhove, Jennifer Anderson, and Tim Nyberg. Gallery hours are Wednesdays-Fridays, 10am-4pm, and Saturdays, 12-4pm. ArtReach is located at 224 N. 4th St., Stillwater, MN.
