Unique Paper Art by Del Foxton

Unique Paper Art by Del Foxton

 

Del Foxton tells The Rickie Report, “Circa 105 AD the Chinese invented an awesome process to make paper. More than 2000 years later, I follow a similar process to create my fine art. My Artistry in Handmade Paper began with my belief in the saying that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem!”

Del explains, “When having to take our own garbage to the local dump, I saw the opportunity to use our paper discards to create environmentally friendly artworks. Environmental responsibility together with a limited recycling program in our area prompted the obsession to up cycle paper and garden castoffs into artistic creations.”

Founded in 2005 and located on Grand Bahama Island, Adagio Art Gallery & Studio is where Del creates and exhibits her collection of handmade paper artworks using local vegetation and the discards of our consumeristic society as her main resource.

Del says, “The opportunity to honor our environment while indulging my passion of hand paper making pleases me. I believe that many establishments, homes and businesses who have already addressed environmental issues, may also want to consider extending their programs to the artistry hanging on their walls.”

AJ Brockman tells The Rickie Report, “The first week of our “soft opening” was a success! Please bear with us as we continue to go through some growing pains and implementing some changes. We’ve rolled out our new menu from Tacos don Pepe earlier than anticipated and will therefore no longer be allowing outside food to be brought in. We understand this was a big part of our atmosphere but we are only trying to make things better and offer more options. The entire menu is literally prepared from scratch with authentic Mexican recipes passed down through the generations. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available + over 6 homemade sangria’s. All you have to do is try it and you will see why we have decided to offer this exclusively!!”

 

Here’s The LineUp*

 

Tuesday – Musicians Showcase “In the Round” : 7 to 10 : $2 off draft & specialty wine. Bringing you a little bit of Nashville to Lake Park. Hosted by Bill Hartmann, this event is part storytelling, part jam session, and all out acoustic. Original music at its finest!

The Bead-n-Sisters share, “Chances are we that have met at a bead show on the east coast and we want to take this opportunity to say thank you for your support and inspiration. If we haven’t met yet, we look forward to hearing from you. We really are sisters, one in Florida and 2 in Massachusetts. In 2002, Susan visited a Florida bead shop and strung her first bracelet. Many thanks to Penny Gaulle for the encouragement to continue learning and exploring the beading world.”
