Artists often find inspiration in the natural world. This means they interact with nature and create works of art that incorporate what they observe opening up their imaginations to explore. These artworks can be abstract or realistic in any medium they have found a love and passion for. Our Garden of Imagination show brings together artists working in art, glass, clay and jewelry.
Loy Allen – Flame worked glass, bluebird perfume bottles, table top orchid sculptures with metal,
butterflies, dragonflies and bees.
Brett Varney – Oil pastel artist, abstract landscapes of flowing rivers, trees and flowers enhanced with gold foil.
So Young Park – jewelry art form inspired by sea life and plants, of wire, discs, engraved patterns and textures forged of gold and silver.

Opening Reception Saturday September 23rd, 5-7PM
Show continues through October 28th.
The interest in celebrity portraits has been around since the work of the early Masters. Artists gain inspiration from everything they see and they have shown us many different ways to represent people.
Inspired by popular culture from movies, television, music, politics and art, these artists bring to life the beauty, glamour, and interest in our Pop Icons that we have worshiped and loved for years. Celebrity muses have inspired some of the world’s greatest artists, Warhol and Monroe, Hepburn and Avedon.
This curated show brings together original mixed media and giclee artwork of Craig Alan, Srinjoy, Nemo, original pastels of Loriann Latremouille, the ceramics of Noi Volko and glasswork by the Borowski’s.
The show is open to the public.
For further information, please contact Linda Gagliostro @727-725-1808 or [email protected]
