The Monthly Gift of Art

Vase by Erica Iman.

We’re definitely not getting out and about as much as usual to go to art openings and shows in a city that’s known for its artists.

One consistent way to see art this year has been by subscription. I signed up for ceramic artist Erica Iman’s monthly bud vases.

Receiving them has been a bright spot during our challenging times, a surprise to look forward to. I’ve received six, and it’s been delightful to study their different clays, textures, and glazes. They look gorgeous grouped together on a side table in my living room or arranged one per place setting on my dining table.

Mug by artist Pierce Haley, who will be the Mug of the Month artist at Belger Arts in February.

In a similar fashion, Belger Arts has created Mug of the Month, “a small, but powerful way to help sustain our vastly changing arts community—one mug at a time.”

Subscribers can sign up monthly or annually for the mugs. So far, they have named the monthly artists through February.
