3D Mixed Media Artwork by Doris Gilden

 

 

Doris Gilden’s background in Fashion Design and Interior Design inspires her to bring her creative skills to her passion for working on Greenware, Bisque and Clay.  She brings fantasy to her one-of-a-kind creations, incorporating lace, beads, sequins, crystals, mirrors and other decorations to what she conceives to be her blank canvas.

Mixed Media Decorative Plate by Doris Gilden

 

 

Doris is inspired by past and present trends and fashion from the 1920’s to the future. She portrays from all backgrounds and she is always looking for new inspirations. Her works may make the perfect centerpiece around which an entire concept may evolve, or, they may be the ideal accessories that have the ability to unify the whole creative design.

 

Decorative Mixed Media Plate by Doris Gilden

 

 

 

Doris has exhibited her works at the Palm Beach International Art Show, the Kravis Center Gift Shop, and Sherry Frankel’s Menagerie on Worth Avenue. In addition, her works have appeared in the Paradise Gallery in Sarasota and the Noyes Museum in New Jersey.

About the Artists:

Husband and Wife Team, Julia and Robin Rogers tell The Rickie Report, ” We are enlivened by the inherent qualities of molten glass; its luminosity, viscosity, and seductive flow.  Our interdisciplinary approach incorporates blown and sculpted glass with electronics, sound, light, shadow, and a host of other materials. Inspiration is around us all, our work is specifically driven by humanity, nature, science, and music. Collaboratively, we meld our ideas into, what hopefully are, contemplative, intriguing, and thought provoking works. In addition to sculpture, we create installation and performance”.

 

 

“Dancer” by Julia and Robin Rogers

 

 

 

Some of their series include, “Animalia Fantastica,” “Sentient & Sapient,” and “Architecture of the Mind.”  “Animalia Fantastica” is a series of blown/sculpted anthropomorphic glass figures.  Since the advent of human expression, animalia has been a driving source of inspiration. In fact, the oldest cave paintings depict animals and the hunt. This narrative continues in “Animalia Fantastica” touching on nourishment and sustainability.  “Sentient & Sapient” is a series of blown glass heads with mixed media that delves into our subject’s psyche.  These pieces physically and metaphorically open up to reveal the interior workings of the mind.  In “Architecture of the Mind,” heads are turned into buildings and the occupants and history of these buildings tell the story of the subject. Looking through the windows the dynamics of life are ever present.

 

 

 

 

“Sassy” by Julia and Robin Rogers

 

 

 

“With performance and installation, we are able to broaden our ideas, creating a larger picture. Ideas of collective conscious, life cycles, perception, and an advancing technological civilization are prevalent in this work.  In the “Journey,” a performance, using a video projected and reflected in a pool of water, we tell a story that begins in a modern, active city in the rain and takes viewers backward through time to the beginning of all life on earth.  We use hot glass in this piece to represent the primordial ooze where life first emerged. We are two artists living, breathing, and working together.  Our minds never stop imagining the possibilities of what can be explored, discovered, shared, and executed”.

Lois Perdue at the easel

 

Learn how to create your own bold, vibrant abstracts in Lois Perdue’s popular “Beyond Small Abstracts” workshop.  She will be teaching new methods of applying textures.  Students of all stages are welcome to this workshop, as Lois will instruct you on how to begin an abstract painting, how to expand smaller works to larger paintings and how to incorporate a variety of intriguing textures and techniques onto Yupo paper!

 

“Mountain Climbing” by Lois Perdue, Acrylic on Watercolor Paper

 

Lois, who has lived in South Florida her entire life, has been recognized in National, State and Local juried art competitions.  Her colorful, abstract expressionist paintings have won many awards.   Lois regularly takes workshop classes with Nationally recognized artists who provide their expertise and enthusiasm for her to continue her passion for painting!

 

 

” Neptune’s Reef” by Lois Perdue, Mixed media on Yupo

 

 

Lois tells The Rickie Report, “After years of working in other creative fields, I discovered a passion for Abstract painting. I had briefly studied oil painting, sculpting and weaving, but entering that first abstract class was the beginning of an amazing journey. Here I could creatively use my energy, spontaneity and vision. I discovered this process is more than just painting reality. It is the opportunity to paint where nothing is ever “wrong” and there are no rules. I use feelings, fantasy and imagination combined with colors, shapes, materials, concepts and design to create my own way of expressing myself through Abstract Art”.

 

“Beach” by Lois Perdue, Mixed media on Yupo

 

 

Many of Lois’ abstract paintings begin on wood panel, watercolor paper or synthetic paper called Yupo with a textural layering to create dimension. She explains, “I apply thin washes of watercolor first and many translucent glazes as the under painting. Then I use bold, vibrant acrylics and inks along with the markings of calligraphy and brush strokes. Abstract Expressionism is a technique that is generally based on free and automatic “action painting”. As I begin to paint my experimental abstracts–sometimes intuitively, sometimes instinctively–I often approach the canvas with a mix of emotions. It is a very personal journey I take when I paint that hopefully, conveys a variety of emotions in viewers”.

 

” Moody Blues ” by Lois Perdue, Mixed media on Yupo

 

Lois is an active member of a number of art-related local, State and National art organizations including the Florida Watercolor Society, Gold Coast Watercolor Societies, Weston Art Guild, Plantation Art Guilds, National League of American Pen Women/Ft. Lauderdale Branch, International Society of Experimental Artists, ArtServe and 12 Voices, an organization of professional artists.

Functional, handmade Art: Mug by Cynthia Zmetronak

 

 

 

 

Cynthia Zmetronak has been working in clay nearly as long as she can remember. Having a mother who dabbled in clay, and a father who built her first wheel helped nurture her inner mud pie girl. She was also fortunate enough to grow up during a time when art classes (including clay), were part of public education, from elementary school through high school. Her post public school education involved the arts. College provided a clay studio with unlimited access and she was hooked on clay. She then went on to earn a Master’s in Art Education and teach in both private and public schools, where clay became an important part of her curriculum.

 

 

Decorative handmade Art by Cynthia Zmetronak

 

 

“Utilitarian and whimsical decorative pieces are my passion”. Although her style has evolved and become more refined over the years, she still makes a line of comical canine and feline utilitarian pieces.  Cynthia is proud to be showing her work at Artisans on the Ave in Lake Worth and looks forward to meeting visitors.

 

 

 

Handmade Pottery by Cynthia Zmetronak

 

“These pieces reflect the humor I find living with a large rescue dog and several domesticated feral cats.” She says “working with clay makes the difference in my day”. How you will interact with my pottery; a lid that fits, a teapot that pours, a mug that feels good in your hand, a bowl that is used for your table, are part of my thought process and studio practice. My enjoyment and funfillment as a maker, comes from people using and enjoying my ware.  As a committed lifelong learner, I will always be a student and a teacher.”
