Artist of the Month

Krasny Botanical Sea Grape Gallery"Botanical,"  by Sue Krasny

 

 

 

During the month of October, our featured 2D artist is oil, acrylic, and mixed media painter Sue Krasny.  Sue has always been passionate about art, and has studied extensively in both the U.S. and Europe.  Her travels provide much of the subject matter for her artwork, and her goal is to express her remembrance of the unique qualites of each locale through the bold use of color and light.  Sue is also committed to sharing her business talents with the local art community as an Endowment Trust Board member of the Visual Arts Center.

Our featureed 3-D artist for October is silver jewelry artist Barbara Simmons.  Barbara's unique and lovely creations are inspired by nature motifs and interesting shapes and stones.  Barbara uses a variety of minerals and gems in her work, but is well known for her beautiful larimar pieces.  Larimar is a rare pale blue mineral found only in the Dominican Republic, and is very reminiscent of the sea and shore.  Barbara creates one-of-a-kind earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces, and pendants in an elegant, tasteful and classic style.
