D&J Art Studio Invites Everyone To “Feel The Love” A Pop Up Art Show Featuring 36 Artists’ Interpretations Of “Love” In 2D And 3D Artworks. Opening Reception Saturday, January 29 With Refreshments And Wine.

Artists, teachers, and studio owners Danuta Rothschild and Janis Clary O heard the call for help!  The world was falling back into a quagmire-state and what could they do? Both understood that people need to “Feel The Love”. They invited 36 artists who ended up building what they affectionately call “The Wall Of Love”. As each artist dropped off their artwork, Danuta recorded each one describing what “love” means to them. (Visit their Facebook page to see the responses – you’ll be surprised by some)!  The public is invited to the Opening Reception on Saturday, January 29, mingling with the artists, enjoying wine and refreshments, plus live music with Amie Kroll, Jim van Voorheis, Bill Shine, and Joe Colombo. The show continues until February 19, 2022.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks! Art lovers have already stopped by to add some of these pieces to their collections! You can, too!

“The Wall of Love”



Danuta Rothschild and Janis Clary O told The Rickie Report, “When we conceived this idea, “The Feel of Love”, we wanted to extend an invitation to share the healing power of love through the artists’ expression.  Love is in solitude…in sharing…in nature…and it can HEAL the human heart.  Indeed, the gentle breeze, a whisper, and touch of LOVE has the POWER to heal the world.  The response to this exhibit is beyond our expectations!  Forty artists expressing their thoughts of love on canvas and sharing their extraordinary gifts”.

Thirty-six artists created 42 pieces of original artwork using mixed media, beads, acrylic painting, hand made glass, fine art photography, and oil painting.  Some of the intriguing titles include “I Woof You”, “Heart of Gold”, “Te Adoro”, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”, “Together”, “You Do You”, “The Embrace”, “Joy”….and more to bring YOU joy!  You have to see these in person to appreciate the artistry and FEEL the LOVE!

Janet Bird Fuller is a 3D, steam punk & industrial assemblage artist who creates all of her work from found objects  and reclaimed material (often found in curbside trash).  Her specialty is STEAMPUNK, a form of Victorian science fiction and fantasy that speculates, “What would the past look like if the future had happened sooner?”  It involves contraptions constructed from lots of gears, gadgets and gizmos.



Laura Kinnemon 


Collage using watch faces and other memorabilia by Laura Kinnemon



Working in collage and assemblage, Laura Kinnemon’s take on portraits and animals, using found items in such a different way, is unique. Each individual item tells a story, and contributes to the final piece.


Teala Krapfl 



“El Guacamole” by Teala Krapfl



Teala Krapfl paints in oils and also draws using graphite on paper. She tries to bring a nostalgic feel to her art, to give the a sense that her characters have lived. They feel familiar and inviting, but there’s some room left for the viewer to fill in their story.


Yolanda Luce

Yolanda Luce’s art is driven by her faith, her family and love of photography, music and travel. Each painting is a moment in time, snapped in her mind’s eye.



Doc McKinney

Sheila Parcell

Lora Yakimov



Sculpture by Lora Yakimov



Lora Yakimov casts and welds pewter sea life into 3-D freestanding and wall sculptures. The transparency of her unique fossil figures symbolize the twin truths of outer decay and simultaneous inner renewal. “…for the things which are seen are temporal, but the unseen is eternal”


“Balloons in Water” by Lori Yakimov


Lora Yakimov uses the symbolism of playful balloons as a metaphor for life (fragile transparent spheres filled with breath, water, light and color)

Janis Clary (Oehlschlager) and Danuta Rothschild




Janis Clary (Oehlschlager) tells The Rickie Report, “From childhood, the difference was evident: Just as Andrew Wyeth found a certain joy, mystery, and fulfillment in the subtleties of white, black, sepia, and brown tones, I discovered COLOR – all colors and every color! In the first grade, my teacher handed me the first “big box” of crayons I had ever seen, and the picture drawn and colored used every single color in the box – including silver!”




Danuta Rothschild tells The Rickie Report, “While I am creating my art, I step into a space that allows me to connect with the Universe…to tap into the unknown.  My intention is that the viewer will not only see carefully chosen colors, images, shadow and light, but will step with me into the magic of the moment…that they will feel the excitement of unplanned surprised that show up on the canvas.  This is the excitement that fulfills me when I am creating.”



View of D&J Art Gallery



Janis is the last of six siblings, born in rural Greenville, SC, so competition was an everyday experience. She says, “If my siblings could do something, or even my mother, there was an absolute need to do it as well – – or better. An artistic mother served as great inspiration for everything art – color, music, style, performance, writing poetry and, finally, drawing and painting!  Serious studies began in my early twenties with private lessons from a highly educated German born artist who taught me the techniques of the Old Masters”.

Danuta Rothschild is an internationally known, respected award winning artist.  She was a Featured Artist at the most recent Palm Beach Art Show at the Palm Beach Convention Center (February,2021), and her works are included in “Celebrating 40 Years of Arts4All  Florida”,  a rigorously juried exhibition being shown at the Florida Capitol 22nd Floor Gallery in Tallahassee now through  March 26, 2021.  A native of Poland, she has lived in California and is now located in Stuart, FL.  Danuta’s works have been shown in prestigious museums in Poland, France, Bosnia, and the United States, where she participated in numerous exhibits in CA.  Having appeared in TV shows world wide, she has become an established artist with much respect.  Danuta’s artworks are in public and private collections throughout the world. 




“On the Nest” by Janis Clary


In the early 1980’s, Janis discovered a deep passion for painting wildlife. She continues, “This focus allowed me to assign life to each piece through the eyes of my subjects – the window to the very soul within the subject! I come to each canvas open-minded and ready to create the space with wonder and life.  There is a freedom in the flow of paints filling the canvas with the colors of life.  It is my world, my longing to be within the depths of losing myself in the process of bringing my subjects to life. My art takes the viewer on the journey through my eyes, seeing that spark that assigns life, captures its very soul, and explores the mood of the environment”.




Janis Clary (Oehlschlager) with “Black Swan” and “Carman’s Hat”



Janis’ works drew the attention of collectors and galleries as she participated in exhibitions in Central Florida.  She says, “In 2010, my life changed as I moved to South Carolina and became involved in the world of art there, participating in classes well as private sessions in Pawleys Island, SC and Georgetown, SC where I participated in many shows at the Georgetown Cultural Council. I was featured in a Solo exhibition in Georgetown.  My works are on exhibit in private and corporate collections, both in the United States and internationally.  My medium of choice is oil painting, though acrylic is now gaining momentum”.





The scope of Danuta’s artistry is diverse and provocative, as they weave an historical tapestry, including her own take on the Masters.  An artist of considerable stature, Danuta created several series of paintings covering a wide range of subjects.  In her “Art About Art” series, she portrays her favorite painters (Cezanne, Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Modigliani) combining portraits with elements of their well-known works.  Half homage, half subtle mischief, these whimsical paintings reveal more about Danuta to the viewer.  




Artwork by Danuta Rothschild 


Danuta’s art provides a sense of social commentary about relevant issues, both spiritual and profound.  It is rare to see the intensity of emotion, scope of subject matter, and true understanding of the human psyche and spirit as she sees it.  Danuta can take soul-wrenching subjects and make them palatable and magical, while allowing us to ask the pertinent questions that moves us to go deeper within ourselves, revealing new understandings.
