“Never Look Back” by  Dana Axel

 

Dana Axel has studied art since High School (Great Neck North Senior High), in Long Island, New York.  At Hofstra University, she was mentored by Professor Perle Fine, a major figure in the Abstract Expression era.  After receiving her B.S. in Education, Specialization Fine Arts as well as all of the painting courses towards the Master of Fine Arts, Dana taught art in the Port Washington School District, New York.

 

 

Artwork by Dana Axel

 

 

Dana’s artwork has been seen in many gallery shows in New York State and New England:  Emily Lowe Gallery; Heckshire Art Museum; Huntington Art League; South Shore Arts Council; the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library Art Shows;  Southern Vermont Art Center, and Stratton Mountain Arts Festivals. A proud member and exhibitor of the Lake Worth Art League since 2012, Dana has served on the Board of Directors for four years. Her paintings have been honored in a Two Person Art Exhibit in the South Palm Beach Town Council Hall, the Art Expo at Valencia Pointe, the Compass Community Center, and Artisans On The Ave in Lake Worth.

 

Artwork by Dana Axel

 

Dana tells The Rickie Report, “Using a “minimalist” vocabulary, I express my perception in a “visual voice” conveyed in a Hard-Edged Abstraction style. Predominantly painting with acrylic on canvas, my work is both non-representational and figurative.  I use collage as preliminary sketches for my paintings. Found imagery and forms are arranged, added to and subtracted from, until my concept emerges”.

Fused Fish Glass Art by Carolyn Austin

 

 

Carolyn Austin began designing and creating glass art within the family business in 1986. She has built her reputation in the Palm Beach Community as one of the most unique glass etching artists in the area. Carolyn has lived in the Jupiter/Tequesta area since 1979 and has developed an eye for the tropical Florida scenes from long legged birds to intensely detailed ocean life which in turn creates one of kind glass art.  “I love working with people and using my 20 years experience to create a beautiful customized look in glass whether it be an entrance way or a free standing piece of glass art. All my designs are created by hand, an intricate detailed process to enhance each clients home and personality. Making my glass art a personal favorite for each client is always satisfying I take pride in my work as does my staff and the exclusive following it has created.”

 Fused Glass by Carolyn Austin

Since taking on this venture, the business has grown in many different directions. The talented staff includes glass etcher and carver Steve Park and artist/painter Julie Silk Beaumont who works with Carolyn to create spectacular designs for our glass art, from traditional to contemporary and anything in between. Glass fusing artist Stacy Dorr offers her unique talent of creating “Hot Glass” to enhance and add new dimension with depth and color to our etched and carved designs. Between these artists Unique Glass Art offers a variety of glass art from your doors and windows to free standing glass art and unique gifts.

 Fused Glass Fish with Wood Frame by Carolyn Austin

Abstract Glass and Metal Sculpture by Irene Jalowayski

Irene Jalowayski has been a working as a glass artist for the past twelve years in Palm Beach County, Florida. She works primarily with fused glass, cast glass and mixed media.

She loves to create abstract sculptures which enhance any home and can be placed on a pedestal or shelf.

 

“Heart Wave” bracelet and Necklace by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

For the past few years Irene has been making cast glass sculptures which are created by making a clay mold, casting in plaster then filling plaster mold with glass and firing at 1500 degrees. The mold is destroyed when the piece is removed from it so all are truly one of a kind. This year she has also been casting glass jewelry boxes which have been very popular with clients. Irene said “ casting is a very versatile medium!

   FIRST FRIDAY ARTWALK OCTOBER 6th

IN ARTIST ALLEY, DELRAY BEACH, FL

354 4th Ave.  Delray Beach, FL

Vicki Siegel invites the public to visit her new studio and exhibit space at 354 4th Ave. in Delray Beach in Artist Alley the first Friday of the each month beginning Oct. 6 and continuing Nov. 3, December 1 and into the New Year. Vicki is sharing this new space with two other artists; Brenda Gordon and Magnus Sebastian (Gordon & Magnus Gallery).

 

VICKI SIEGEL:

 

Vicki Siegel’s work combines painting and photography together. She creates images that unite her fascination with the world around her with the physicality of paint. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary. The photographers gaze allows her to observe and archive reality, while the paint flows from her subconscious to her brush in marks that are uniquely her own.  Siegel says, “In my work I ask the viewer to engage by comparing what is photographic and what is paint, but also what is personal and what is universal”. In the narrative it is her hope that they see her vision of how strange and wonderful life is, and how beautiful nature is and the necessity of preserving it.
