FEBRUARY 2018 – Body Eclectic

Lawrence Street Gallery 


The Body Eclectic!

This is our annual competition exhibit that focuses on the figure.  Exhibiting media include paintings, sculpture, and ceramics. Todd Burroughs, our juror this year, has chosen 53 entries, from well over 100 pieces, to comprise the exhibit.  He has also donated his fee to create an additional “Jurors Award” to be announced at the Opening Reception, on Friday, February, 1.

Todd Burroughs has a BA in Historic Preservation/Fine Art, from Eastern Michigan University, studied at Atelier Alternative in Chicago, Illinois, and founded the Atelier Art Studio in Royal Oak.  He is best known for his realist drawings, oil paintings and passion for teaching.  Todd writes, “Somehow I ended up with the idea that if you know something, it creates an obligation to pass it on.  This has led to teaching being an important part of my studio practice.  One of the things I love about teaching is that it creates an environment of intellectual curiosity that is contagious.  Curiosity dries me to start a new piece of art and to sit down in front of a piece that I have been working on for months with excitement and sincerity.”  Todd’s fresh perspective to teaching is shaped by his life-long research into art-making techniques, advocacy for youth education and the development of accessible studio practices for all.  He regularly shares his knowledge through lectures and teaching from the studio.  The Atelier Art Studio is located at 407 E. 4th St., Royal Oak, MI  48067
