Walk us through your creative process; Does it vary, if so, how? I have this weird superstition that I can’t paint with makeup on, I guess it’s due to fear of accidentally touching my face and then the painting and accidentally ruining it…so, I start off with a clean face. I then move on to drawing my design/ideas, Then I transfer them over to my painting surface. I usually paint on Arches Cold Press watercolor paper. I turn on some background noise, whether it’s music or the television and I turn off my phone. I usually don’t check it unless I go to take a progress photo to avoid

La Comunidad art exhibit honors Hispanic & Latino culture in Topeka

TOPEKA (KSNT) – It’s Hispanic Heritage Month and a new exhibit at the Topeka and Shawnee county library is highlighting the rich Hispanic and Latino culture that exists in Topeka.

La Comunidad is the newest art exhibit to open at the library and it means the community.

The exhibit is filled with beautiful pieces of art all created by 11 Topeka artists.

“We have photography in the back, there’s sound, there’s dance, there’s movement, there are colors,” Sabatini Art Gallery Curator Zan Popp said. “There’s a vibrant light that’s being put on display here in the gallery.”

“You walk through and there’s just so many stories on display,” Popp said.

From sculptures to paintings, photographs, costumes, and even video montages: themes
