What happens when you mix Wood, Glass and Clay???   You get an amazing, creative, new art form from three accomplished Artists.   The collaboration of this one of a kind mixed media show started out as a friendship between fellow artists Pamela Carman, Carolyn Austin and Bill Jones sharing ideas and admiring each other’s designs.  

They competed individually, at some of the same competitions, and won awards together. The list of their successes and their ability to teach, exhibit, and give back to the Palm Beach Art communities is commendable.   They started talking, sketching, etching, cutting, turning and gluing………!!!!!!

The majority of her work is inspired by and based in nature. Recurring animal themes, especially of birds and fish can be seen in her most recent work. They are meant to bring a smile or chuckle.

Carolyn has lived in the Jupiter/Tequesta area since 1979 and 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. She tells us, “I love working with people and using my 25 years plus of 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 client’s home and personality. Making my glass art a personal favorite for each client is always satisfying. I take pride in my work and the exclusive following it has created.”    www.uniqueglassart.com

"Alice  and Caterpillar"

“Alice and Caterpillar”

 

Pam tells The Rickie Report, “My exhibit ‘Alice in Wonderland’ is a series of illustrations that tell the story. Illustration is a form of art that depicts the written word.  I like to put my research and visions down on paper to make words become a painting.  I chose to illustrate Lewis Carroll’s story of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ because the story is so interesting and complex.  It is filled with riddles, math problems, impossible situations, and wonderful characters. My research involved exploring what these characters might look like.  Then I developed them, melding those ideas with my own personal view of people and animals”.

“Illustration is a form of art that depicts the written word. The depiction is visualization by the artist and can be done in any form such as drawing, painting, photography, etching or woodblock printing.  Illustrations are artistic images created by the artist that are extracted from the text of poems, stories, fashion, magazines, stamps, technical & medical items. This makes it different than doing a painting that is a visual to the artist. The illustrator must conceive and research the idea of what is trying to be conveyed to the reader.  Original illustrations end up being printed so many people have access to the art work representing the written word.  The illustrations done in medieval time were woodblock prints.  Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press allowed him to add illustrations in the form of woodprints to his books. 1880 became the “Golden Age of Illustration” with the development of mass market papers, magazines and books. It continues the same way today but, with the help of the computer research is made easier”, Pam explains.

 

 

"Hare & Mouse"

“Hare & Mouse”

 

 

Pam clarifies, “John Tenniel was Lewis Carroll’s illustrator and his medium was pen & ink. He would create many versions of his drawings until he liked his final composition and then would send it to be printed.  My medium of choice is watercolor because of the transparent quality, fluid movement and its acceptance of different techniques. After the drawings are complete, then it is time to add the color to finalize the process.  I hope that everyone will enjoy my version of ‘Alice in Wonderland'”.

“When doing a regular painting I choose to paint a variety of different subjects from places to which we have traveled or subjects close to home. When I spot something that strikes my fancy, it will end up on paper. I use watercolors most of the time because they are spontaneous, transparent and can be used in many different techniques. Careful attention is given to the compositions and an intricate process of drawing precedes the use of color.  Most of my exhibits have been in galleries, corporate offices and outdoor shows in the Northeast and Florida. Summers are spent in my North Eastham Studio and Winters are spent in Florida,” says Pam.   The Rickie Report knows we are lucky to have Pam here, to share her wonderful paintings!
