Lani Allman and Suzi Nolt-John bring their art to you. Watch as they hand-build or throw clay on their traveling wheels. See a simple lump of clay take shape. Watch as various techniques are used to create their works of art. See a flat frog, Moodz or flowered vase come to life. Watch for the whimsical and the beautiful as these two coax the clay to be something artistic, functional or just plain fun!
Glasssmith Artists Brock Allen and Karl Smith have talents abounding with their work in stained & leaded, slumped and diachroic glass creations. See their leaded glass windows and ornaments for your home, their slumped glass decorative items and diachroic glass jewelry. They will demo their techniques before your eyes! From screen bugs to stained glass panels, their work is amazing!
Peggy Cooper creates purses, but not just your ordinary purses. Each one is a well-planned work of art! Using silk, she carefully considers the colors, patterns and positioning, then forms a geometric design that she will incorporate into her work. Lovely! Her demonstrations are fun to watch and the finished product is a functional and beautiful piece of fashion art to carry with pride!
Gawaine Banks, PhD, brings his keen eye for composition and his love of photography to life in his creations! Watch as he zeroes in on a subject and finds the best light, angle and framing. See his finished products including original photos on candles, greeting cards and other items. Dr. Banks then uses his computer to enhance, distort or add his own ideas to his photos. His is truly a love of the art of photography!
We see a lot of budding artists, and the most fun is to watch those eager faces light up as we demo our art. I would like to think that the seeds we plant today will be cultivated into a lifetime of appreciation of the arts.
