There isn't an artist in the world who hasn't been inspired by a master from the art canon. Looking at and recreating the artwork of others is not only how artists gain inspiration, but also how they enhance their visual repertoire and sharpen their technical skills.

The Masters is an exhibition driven by the inspiration Creativity Explored artists have amassed from viewing the works of old and new masters at local art museums and in the CE studio libraries. What speaks to one artist doesn't necessarily speak to another. Therefore, this exhibition is comprised of artworks as diverse as their makers.

While some artists have selected cave drawings and biblical illustrations as their source, Van Gogh's textured landscapes and Klimt's gold leaf portraits have inspired others. Some renditions of famous works are quite recognizable - though in each case the artist kept true to their own style of working. In other instances, works by CE artists are playful deviations from the master's originals. The new Mona Lisa may take you by surprise!
