Event Description Power of the Sketchbook: From Concept to Creation” – Robert Grimes, Victoria Brace and Glenn Grishkoff
Rarely on public display, the artist’s sketchbook captures drawings and ideas that serve as the foundation of the artistic process.  And, in the words of artist Glenn Grishkoff, “these small visual tidbits of time and space allow for greater intimate connections for the birth of concepts and developing a unique style true to oneself.” The Art Spirit Gallery is grateful to its three featured artists as they share a handful of their private sketchbooks for viewing in this special exhibition. 
Robert Grimes, mixed media artist – Spokane, WA
Robert Grimes is celebrated throughout the Northwest for his intricate, three-dimensional paintings on carved wood that take on the aesthetic qualities of both painting and sculpture.  For this exhibition, in addition to creating new work Robert has unearthed a number of pieces from his personal collection to showcase. 
Robert received an MFA in sculpture from Indiana University.  The Art Spirit Gallery has proudly exhibited his work since it opened its doors in 1997.
Victoria Brace, oil painter – Spokane, WA
Born and educated in Russia, Victoria Brace is well known for her figurative work and cityscapes. “I like structure; human body has structure, still life has structure, cities have structure.”  Victoria will showcase a number of landscapes and cityscapes inspired by her recent travels to places dear to her heart.
Victoria graduated from the Moscow College of Art with a BA in painting and art education.  The Art Spirit Gallery has proudly exhibited her work since 2008.
