St Augustine Fl. - February 4th, 20116 - Amiro Art and Design is proud to participate again in the First Friday Art Walk. This month we will be featuring the following artists -
Estella Fransbergen will be in attendance bringing new work. She exhibits raku fired sculptures, detailed with natural stones, crystals and feathers. Fransbergen was
recently the featured artist in Tampa of a partnership between Syd Entel Gallery and Dillard's Department Store in a Tribute to the Dress 2. One of her sculptures was
auctioned in a fundraiser for All Children's Hospital.
Cindy Wilson, has become totally immersed in exploring the possibilities of working with hot wax and dyes on cotton fabric, and her new mantle as an award-winning batik
artist. She is presenting new works in a series entitled "Adventures in Batik" showcasing her meticulous attention to detail in a variety of subject matter.
Wilson will be showing with painter Jane Monroe at the FSCJ Kent Campus Gallery in Jacksonville March 8-29.
Darrell George from Bethlehem PA, paints figurative abstracts in oil that allows just enough control of the medium to get a three-dimensional message across on a two
dimensional surface. It is in the exaggeration of our imperfections Darrell George finds beauty. The viewer is tempted to look more than once, recognizing something new
within the layers at each glimpse.
Lyn Asselta’s pastel landscapes have been described as expressive, evocative and timeless. Her paintings are inspired by the environment around her, both natural and
manmade, but she is particularly drawn to images that relay a sense of solitude and strength. Asselta's pastel paintings have been exhibited throughout the United States
and in France. Founder and current co-president of the First Coast Pastel Society, Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and Master's Circle of the
International Assoc. of Pastel Societies. A feature artist of the Jan/Feb 2016 issue of Pastel Journal, her work graced the cover.
David Ouellette is an art history Professor, former gallery director, lecturer, and art consultant. His paintings bring a sense of motion into the visual realm. The work is
sensual and gestural, capturing the immediacy in using enamel paint as medium. Ouellette will be delivering a talk on Saturday 12th March at Amiro Art + Design about
his process.
Gabrielle Gould, back from showing at the prestigious American Craft Council show in Baltimore, will be showing new whimsical birds and animal jewelry in oxidized silver
accented with enameling, gold and feathers. Her unique style has been featured in Metalsmith and Exhibitions In Print magazines, and she continues to show her work
around the country.
Trasea Womack has ocean-themed glass lampwork jewelry and ornaments. Her unique style and methods of color fusion invoke the range of emotions that arise from
the power of the ocean.
Lucy Clark hand builds pottery using the coil method. Each piece is carved, burnished and smoked for finished effect. Each piece is different in its aesthetic. Lucy pulls from
her many years as a massage therapist and touching people to listen to what the clay wants to be and how it wishes to be transformed into shape in the physical universe.
