Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
Scott Adams

Don Krause, curator and owner of Art★Bar, has issued the following challenge for the 2022 CoPA+Art★Bar summer exhibition: Happy Accidents.

Sometimes art is messy, chaotic and unpredictable. In these instances art can often end up happening to you more than you happen to it.

We visualize, we compose, we execute our technique and when we get to the post portion of our process we are often surprised. The image we thought would be the one can often disappoint; while a test shot or a mistake electrifies.
We want to see that great shot…that didn’t go according to plan. The Happy Accident.
