Clay Glass Metal Stone Cooperative Gallery
Lisa Kraemer, Guest Artist
April and May
15 South J. Streets, Lake Worth
Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery welcomes Lisa Kraemer as guest artist for the months of April and May. Lisa is the first local guest artist to be invited to display in a prominent position at the front of the gallery. This will begin a tradition of guest artists in the gallery’s new home at 15 South J. Street in Downtown Lake Worth.
Lisa is a self-taught artist of great passion and skill. Her works in clay are seen in shows and galleries throughout the county. She is well known to her sister and brother ceramic artists at the right hand assistant to Betty Wilson, owner/director of the Craft Gallery, West Palm Beach’s center of learning in clay and fused glass techniques. Lisa assists and attends the many workshops at the Craft Gallery absorbing great technique and knowledge from the wide range of teaching artists. This she has translated into hundreds of works that are wanted by collectors throughout the Palm Beaches.
The Guest Piece displayed in the Clay Glass Metal Stone Cooperative Gallery is that of a nearly seven foot tall tree. It is crafted from clay with branches and twigs. Following the Mexican Huichol Indian tradition, the clay is then wound in a yarn pattern giving it texture and life. The yarn, in this case, is an off-white color. This gives it the appearance of the majestic bleached trees of the forests that stand in memory of their past life. Roosting on the branches are white ghosts of birds past. This is, indeed, a dramatic and powerful exhibit.
Visitors to the gallery are welcome to come in and view this remarkable work of art along with all of the other creations of local artists, members of the gallery. Until purchased, the tree will be on exhibit through the end of May.
