Jeremy Verwys in Our Studio

ArtPrize really did give us so much, as well as being a time that we could create a really solid body of work that we are very proud of, it was a time that we were able to meet some really wonderful people. Though are project was designed primarily around painting with recorded music that vistiors would bring us on their iPods, we had the extreme fortune to work with some incredible musicians. Guitarist, Jeremy Verwys was one of these very pleasant surprises.

We were very comfortable in our Grand Rapids studio supplied to us by Steepletown Neighborhood Services. That made painting 10 to 12 hours a day as much of a joy as you might think it would be. So when Jeremy showed up with his guitar case was like slipping on a very comfortable pair of shoes. His classical guitar style put every one in the room into a very sweet spot. As painters we were able to get completely lost in that moment.

When Jeremy finished his hour long set, and started to pack up, we asked if that was all, and he responded, "Hey, I would love to play more if you would like. I will play all night if you will let me."

Jeremy is a Grand Rapids native and is presently playing his guitar as much as possible. Check out his Facebook page to see what he is up to.
