Jane’s husband Peter Tracy donated many of her paintings to charity. “As a lifelong advocate for women’s rights and children, Jane would be thrilled to know her paintings will benefit charitable organizations that serve those in need,” said Tracy.

 

 

“The knowledge that there will always be another blank surface for me to paint serves as my ultimate inspiration. To paint is to bring joy to my life.
To paint is to touch my soul, I live to paint…with a joyful soul.” – Jane Tracy

 

 

Award winning artist Jane Tracy was a creative force her entire life. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Central Michigan University and went on to teach art in Montpelier, Vermont. In 1968 she married Peter Tracy and continued her life’s journey as an artist. Her experiences were diverse. She worked in advertising and as a studio potter Jane created functional stoneware that was sold throughout the eastern United States. In 1972 she became a potter-in-residence at the Guilford Art Center in Guilford, Connecticut.

 

 

 

The dynamic and vibrant artist opened Curious Jane’s Restaurant in 1977 with great success through 1981. She even designed the couple’s home in Branford, Connecticut, which was featured in a variety of publications. She launched her career as a painter in 1985; her passion for color, texture and movement apparent in each of the hundreds of abstract paintings she ultimately created. Jane’s art is powerful and vivid, reflective of the joy that fueled her creative process. www.JaneTracyArt.com

 

Jane Tracy’s Artist Statement:

Making art is always a challenge. The sensory involvement and visceral stimulation needed, requires a commitment – a commitment to struggle through the process – enjoying the moments of success and triumphing over the ever-present grind of making compositional selections of color, line, value or shape.

 

Non-paintings compel me to surrender to my intuition and to trust my inner-urge to experiment. The process of continually making choices and decisions– what to add, what to keep, what to eliminate, what to repeat and ultimately, when to stop–is both daunting and exhilarating.

 

The thrill of a uniquely textured surface, the contrasting interplay of warm and cool colors, the surprise of unplanned subtleties are some of the factors in my highly personal, solitary painting experiences that inspire me each time I begin a new painting. The knowledge that there will always be another blank surface for me to paint serves as my ultimate inspiration.

Luminary With handmade Paper by Mary Catello

 

 

Luminaries with Handmade Paper

This two-day workshop will be an adventure into papermaking with an artistic goal. Each student will work with both cotton and abaca pulp and learn to form sheets of paper. Using reed and/or natural materials they will build a form to be covered with their newly designed paper to create a paper lantern.

This workshop offers the opportunity to experiment, learn and play.

 

 

 

While Mary Catello is predominantly a self-taught fiber artist, she has worked with and studied under some of the most successful artists in the field. Mary has received both local and national acclaim for mind-bending creations. Twice, she has had pieces selected to tour through the US with the National Basketry Association. Locally her paper jewelry, organic sculptures and installations have been juried into art venues from Miami Dade to Martin County. 

 

 

In addition to hours of studio work, Mary has been an instructor at the Armory Art Center for seven years.  As the Armory expands their scope of courses in the Fiber Department, Mary has been instrumental in organizing and promoting the study of paper as a diverse fiber with unlimited potential. Her workshops have included paper making, paper casting, paper jewelry and paper mache as a sculptural medium.

Mary has always enjoyed expressing her creativity. She was a trendsetting salon owner and stylist in New York City where creating masterpieces of tresses was her art form. Simultaneously, she opened The MaryGrace Institute; the first accredited Nail Technology School in New York. At MaryGrace students were taught, along with basic nail theory and practical lessons, award-winning techniques in airbrushing, 3-dimensional and multi-media nail art.

 

In 1994, after selling her salon and school, Mary relocated to South Florida and began taking classes in sketching, acrylics and water colors. But her true passion began when she met a basket weaver in Sedona, Arizona. Mary was inspired and a fiber artist was born!

 

Mary took only two basket weaving classes with internationally-known weavers, Flo Hoppe and Mary Hetts. She was introduced to palm inflorescence by Judy Briscoe, another basket weaver. On her own she began to experiment with size and materials determined to transform the traditional basket into art, and art it is! Her work is unique and identifiable.
