Sheppard brings Monroe art to Lansing

first_img Categories: Sheppard News,Sheppard Photos 12Feb Sheppard brings Monroe art to Lansing Lawmaker impressed with local art on display in officeState Rep. Jason Sheppard has Monroe-area art on display in his Lansing office, and the pieces—all created by artists from the local community—feature renditions of various locales around Michigan, as well as some abstract impressions of the state.“I’m ecstatic that I can share a part of our Monroe community with my colleagues in Lansing,” said Sheppard, R-Temperance. “I’m lucky to have some talented and generous residents who are willing to lend their creations to beautify our office space.”The showcase is organized by artists Betzi Pipis and Christy LaRoy, directors of the Art Insight Emporium in Monroe. Pipis curated eight different pieces of local art in the representative’s office, and said she plans to swap in new creations by different artists regularly over Sheppard’s two-year term.Many of the participating artists have expressed gratitude for the opportunity to share their work in Lansing. Emily Jo Short is among those who sent their thanks.“I’m a fairly new artist, as I’ve only been sharing my work publicly for the past year,” Short said. “I consider sharing my art work with Rep. Sheppard another highlight to add to my growing list of achievements.”Featured in the representative’s office, Short’s piece is titled “Love Michigan,” and was inspired by summer vacations that her family takes to the Sleeping Bear Dunes.The southeast Michigan representative said he would be pained to pick a current favorite.“They all have striking, unique qualities that bring life to the office,” Sheppard said. “I like them all very much, but the oil by James Tidwell featuring downtown Monroe is often recognized by local guests.”last_img read more
