This year’s show features art by Kristin Holeman, a professional artist since 1974. Raised in Venezuela and Argentina, Kristin has been a Florida resident for 42 years. She is a self-taught jeweler specializing in enameling process. Kristin has returning customers spanning her 42-year career, and her collectors have donated her work to museums around the country, including the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC. Her art is often described as whimsical and uplifting. Most pieces are autobiographical, telling a story about her family or a life event using metal and enamel.  In May 2015, Kristin was a finalist at the Santa Fe Symposium® in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Rio Grande Jewelry Supply Company recognizes distinction in jewelry design, announced the winners of the 15th Annual Saul Bell Design Award competition.
