Gin Blische’s Creations Are NOT Stuffed Animals! Meet This Master Needle Felter And Her Menagerie On October 19th At Artisans On The Ave

Wool sculptor, Gin Blische has created quite the niche for herself here in Palm Beach County. Needle-felted sculpture is unique in South Florida, but she feels just fine being a big colorful fish in a small tropical pond.  Her commitment to her art is the reason she has an impressive collection of unique creations on display at Artisans On The Ave Gallery in Lake Worth, Florida. Her colorful menagerie of creatures will sometimes have you doing a double take! How did a raccoon get into the Gallery window!  Her sculptures of all things woolen have garnered the interest of collectors from here to Hollywood CA where she was commissioned by FOX TV Network to create two sculptures for a TV show set.  Meet Gin on Friday, October 19th at Artisans on the Ave for their “Fantasy & Fairy Tales” Opening Reception!   The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks!  

 

 

 

THEY     ARE     NOT     STUFFED!  

Meet The Creations of Gin Blische

 

 

NEXT ART SHOW:

“Fantasy & Fairy Tales”

Featuring Gin Blische, Amelia Costa and Julie Naseef

Friday, October 19  

6 – 9 PM

Artisans On The Ave.  630 Lake Ave, Lake Worth Florida

 (free and open to the public, refreshments)

 

 

 

 

Gin Blische

 

 

 

A multitalented individual, Gin is also a member of INHOUSE, a South Florida based band she founded with her twin Sister. INHOUSE has performed with artists like Fleetwood Mac, Peter Frampton, Bonnie Raitt and Ziggy Marley among others. Recently, she is splitting her time between sculpting and preparing for the INHOUSE, 20th Anniversary Reunion Concert at the Norton Museum of Art’s, Art After Dark on February 22.

 

 

 

 

Display of Gin’s Creations at Artisans On The Ave Gallery

 

Working out of her home studio in Lake Clarke Shores, Florida, Gin surrounds herself with a palette of naturally dyed English sheep’s wool, llama wool and angora, just waiting to be turned into something fantastical!  Gin tells The Rickie Report, “I’m sure I am not alone when I say that expression can be the most important element of any sculpture or painting. When I use the term “expression,” I mean it quite literally, although people express themselves in their art no matter what their subject or medium.  I’m just not that deep with my creations. I create to create emotion, but that emotion comes from the expressions on the faces and posture of each of my sculptures.  Many people have said they see me in my work. My eyes, my expressions, no matter the creation”.

 

 

 

Another creation by Gin Blische

 

 

 

 

 

She goes on to say, “Making creations that look like Gin the bear, Gin the owl, Gin the bird. Before you start thinking of me as a narcissist, please don’t. It may happen inadvertently. I may be creating my twin sister, the woman dearest to my heart.  I’ve stared at my face my entire life without looking in the mirror. It’s no wonder my sculptures look a little like me.  When I look at them though, I see the eyes of my dog Ralph. He had the most sensitive eyes.  I loved to look into them while I pet his brow. He filled me with so much love. I try to recreate that emotion with every piece I create. Sometimes I almost get there. :)”

 

 

 

 

Gin Blische’s Pelican

 

 

 

Gin is the daughter of artist Herbert Weintraub, who is best known for his oil and acrylic cityscapes and nautical and rural American paintings. Perhaps this is why the idea of creating art as a career is not foreign to her. She spent many hours admiring her Dad, hard at work at his easel. Her youth was spent going to art shows in Greenwich Village and Central Park. She studied Fashion Design and Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York before embarking on a career in Fashion throughout the 1980’s. Her illustrations won over Liz Claiborne before her studies ended at the reputable school.

Gin Blische’s Bongo Bear
Gin tells The Rickie Report, “Commissions have always been challenging considering I am not a portrait artist. Most of the commission work I do, has an element of fantasy to it… almost a caricature of the subject. That style has never steered me wrong. It is my style. Truth is, there is nothing more special than a  creation of someone or something you love. As far as gifts go, it is extremely thoughtful. Which brings me to my next point. If you are looking for something original to give as a gift this holiday, walk into a local gallery. If you don’t see anything you love but you do see a style you like, commission something. Make sure you do it soon…holiday seasons get very busy for most artists”.

 

 

Holiday Pet Portrait Commissions by Gin Blische

 

Pet Portraits:  With the Holiday season around the corner, the perfect gift for someone you love may be a felted one. These collectibles are a unique addition to any home and can include anything from a 3D portrait of your pet’s face in a frame or a small full body portrait.  This is the perfect gift idea for that person who adores their pet(s).  We suggest you get your order in early for Holiday gifts. 

 

 

 

 

Classes Offered:  Gin offers classes to groups of 5 or more ages 10 and up which includes supplies. Contact Gin to book a date for your party. Day or Evening classes available. This is a great idea for Birthday, Retirement, Holiday or just plain Crafter Parties. Gin will travel and teach in your home for an extra fee.

 

 

 

Crafting is a great tool for building confidence, forming friendships, and developing focus.

Mermaids and dragons and gremlins, oh my! Get your inner fantasy rolling when you stop by Artisans on the Ave gallery and see these creatures come to life in every form! Meet three of the talented artists from Artisans on the Ave on Friday, October 19 at the Opening Reception for “Fantasy & Fairy Tales”.

And Julie Naseef shows how to take nature’s bounty – shells – to build creatures, functional art and true conversation pieces. Each of these artists will be on hand to chat about their art and share insight into how the artful mind goes from the ordinary to fantastical. So join the creative minds at Artisans on the Ave Gallery and let your inner child spring to life. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks!

Yep! It’s that time of year we affectionately call the Dog Days of Summer.The snowbirds are gone, the sun is stronger and we are all looking for relief from the heat. Even dog-tired pooches are looking for a way to cool off.

 

Trot into the gallery in steamy downtown Lake Worth, cool off and unleash some of that hot cash burning a hole in your wallet. You will find art by South Florida artists with such incredible talent that they are sure to get your tail wagging. During the month of August you can sniff out all the fun, doggy-inspired art – paintings, sculpture, pottery, etc. – we have in the gallery.

 

 

 

 

To add more bark to our bite (well, more like a snap), we are partnering with another local Lake Worth business, Paws on the Avenue. They’ll be sponsoring pet adoptions at their store (525 Lake Avenue), courtesy of Palm Beach Animal Care and Control, from 6 to 9 pm on August 17 and you can find tons of dog-related items adorning their shelves. There will be added extras at both the gallery and their shop (treats, discounts, etc.) so it is worth a stroll down the block for all the goodies.

 

During the reception  you can lap up a cool drink, get a tasty treat and howl (or bow-wow) at the moon when you see the amazing talent curled up in our gallery. We’ll even have fresh water for the canines (thank you, Paws on the Avenue) outside of both businesses. So don’t just lay down and roll over to beat the heat. Jump up, fetch your partner – or master or best friend or whatever pet name you use – and run with the big dogs to Artisans on the Ave at 630 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth.

 

 

 

 

 

When you give a handmade piece of art to friends and loved ones created by local artists, you are also giving a gift to your community.  Artisans on the Ave boasts three showrooms with an amazing selection of exquisite art created by local artists. Your invited opening night for an evening of fun, the opportunity to meet the artists and to help support your community.

A “father” is more than the biological paternal source of our being. He is a person who cares and provides for us. He is a person who helps to set the standards, the family values and the example. So, add to this group, step fathers and other men who willingly and eagerly accept and cherish the role.  Whether biological, adopted or informally, if they are the father figure to you, give him some recognition today and don’t hesitate to call him “Dad”.

 

 

 

 

A day to honor Dad? A time to spend with Dad?  Check out our selection of exquisite art handcrafted ART by local artists. Visit this opening night for an evening of fun, bring your Dad!! Meet the artists!!!

 

 

Buy a graduation gift that really says “conGRADulations”!  A handcrafted piece art can be functional as well as decorative!  Artisans On The Ave has so many to choose from!

In celebration of Earth Day (April 22), Artisans on the Ave in downtown Lake Worth is featuring two artists who are totally in sync with our lovely planet!

 

“Connected” by Tracy Rosof-Petersen

 

 

Tracy Rosof-Petersen (EarthArtistsClayStudio.com), who is as warm as she is talented, has a passion to create pieces that celebrate our humanness, have emotional substance and utilize sustainable materials. Her new clay and sculpted tile “Connected” series features ornamentation that intertwines with the human form. Be it a vase, a vessel, a platter, this series speaks to the human relationships with each other and with our natural surroundings. Her work is continually evolving and she often mixes a sense of humor with her considerable skill in many of her creations. As with all of her pieces, they are sturdy, durable and truly nice to look at!

 

 

Wood carved Owl by Herb Brofsky

 

 

Herb Brofsky spent his career practicing dentistry, but always had a love of the arts. A collector of paintings, clocks and antiques, upon retirement, he moved to Cape Cod, MA. Continually observing the activity at the bird feeders by his kitchen window, his growing fascination with their movements led him to a new venture. Throughout his newfound bird carving career, he has studied under a variety of carvers. Using mostly bass and tupelo woods, his pieces explode with color from the acrylic paint and various washes applied to his little gems. He has so enjoyed carving birds, that he’s migrated (no pun intended) to other animals – horses, deer, fish and ducks. He is having so much fun – and winning blue ribbons at competitions – that Herb is one happy retiree.

Meet Herb Brofsky, Wildlife Wood Carver

 

 

Herb Brofsky, a Navy veteran and retired dentist, was always an art lover and collector.  After he retired from his dental practice, he and his wife, Ruth, moved to Cape Cod, MA.  Searching for a new activity to keep his mind sharp, he learned about wood carving at the Senior Center of Barnstable, MA.  Herb found teachers who could help him create carvings.   

 

Flamingo Wood Carving by Herb Brofsky

 

 

 

Herb utilizes two different types of wood: bass and tupelo.  While he began his carving venture by creating sea captains, he would continually observe the activity at the bird feeders by his kitchen window.  This growing fascination of the birds’ movements led him to a new focus.

 

Wildlife Wood Carving by Herb Brofsky

 

 

Throughout his newfound bird carving career, he has studied under a variety of carvers.  He credits June Noll, a nationally award-winning master wildlife carver, with helping him attain the minute details you will find in each bird carving.

Herb Brofsky’s Wood Carved Bird

 

After the carving is finished, Herb carefully chooses the appropriate acrylic paint colors and washes to complete his valuable birds.  Herb also carves horse, deer, fish, and ducks.  His work can be seen at Artisans on The Ave Gallery in Lake Worth, FL and  Vermont Artisan Designs in Brattleboro, VT.   Herb is available to create commission and promises that no two carvings are ever alike!
