September celebrates “Season Shift” and sapphire. Sapphire represents lightness, joy and peace of mind, very appropriate as we ease out of our dry, scorching summer. Our featured artists are Becky Olesen, acrylic paintings; Art Rosenberg, assemblages; Joyce of Joyance, beaded jewelry and Diana Swanson, glass.
Becky’s paintings depict the essence and energy of the New Mexico landscape.
Art incorporates stones, sticks, sea urchin quills and other natural objects on slate to create zen-like meditative wall pieces.
Joyce’s bead jewelry of stones or crystal with sterling are classic and elegant.
Diana is a self-proclaimed “glass-a-holic” who discovered her artistic passion in the process of glass fusion. Her colorful, intense, ornamental and functional pieces contrast beautifully with the southwest landscapes, symbolically rich natural object assemblages, and crystal jewelry of our other three featured artists.
Meet the September featured artists at our reception 1pm – 3pm on Sunday, September 13, 2015.
