Painting of a blue bicycle against a brown background. Painted on board.
This painting by local artist Missy Morrow was first on exhibit as part of the 2018 Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts exhibition. Morrow’s artwork focuses on the simple things in life that once brought us joy and how we can bring them back into our lives. Her style has a painterly quality that is bold, simple, and often includes everyday objects, birds, and landscapes.
“It is important to me that my work is enjoyable and allows the viewer a moment’s respite from worldly anxieties as they can be overwhelming at times. I want my understanding and use of design, color and subject matter to leave them with a feeling of calm and wellbeing….I want my work to bring simplicity to an often cluttered world.” – Missy Morrow
