Yep! It’s that time of year we affectionately call the Dog Days of Summer.The snowbirds are gone, the sun is stronger and we are all looking for relief from the heat. Even dog-tired pooches are looking for a way to cool off.

 

Trot into the gallery in steamy downtown Lake Worth, cool off and unleash some of that hot cash burning a hole in your wallet. You will find art by South Florida artists with such incredible talent that they are sure to get your tail wagging. During the month of August you can sniff out all the fun, doggy-inspired art – paintings, sculpture, pottery, etc. – we have in the gallery.

 

 

 

 

To add more bark to our bite (well, more like a snap), we are partnering with another local Lake Worth business, Paws on the Avenue. They’ll be sponsoring pet adoptions at their store (525 Lake Avenue), courtesy of Palm Beach Animal Care and Control, from 6 to 9 pm on August 17 and you can find tons of dog-related items adorning their shelves. There will be added extras at both the gallery and their shop (treats, discounts, etc.) so it is worth a stroll down the block for all the goodies.

 

During the reception  you can lap up a cool drink, get a tasty treat and howl (or bow-wow) at the moon when you see the amazing talent curled up in our gallery. We’ll even have fresh water for the canines (thank you, Paws on the Avenue) outside of both businesses. So don’t just lay down and roll over to beat the heat. Jump up, fetch your partner – or master or best friend or whatever pet name you use – and run with the big dogs to Artisans on the Ave at 630 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth.

 

 

 

 

 

When you give a handmade piece of art to friends and loved ones created by local artists, you are also giving a gift to your community.  Artisans on the Ave boasts three showrooms with an amazing selection of exquisite art created by local artists. Your invited opening night for an evening of fun, the opportunity to meet the artists and to help support your community.

“Beautiful Art X 2” Features Gail Erickson And Robert Hunter At Artisans On The Ave March 16th

Artisans On The Ave Gallery is featuring “Beautiful Art X 2” with Gail Erickson ( ceramics and mixed media) and Robert Hunter (wood). The Opening Reception is free and Open to The Public on Friday, March 16th.  Refreshments will be served and you will be able to meet not only Gail and Robert, but many of the artists whose work is sold in this gallery/boutique.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

 

 

 

 

ARTISANS  ON   THE  AVE

PRESENTS:

“BEAUTIFUL  ART  X 2”

Gail Erickson   and   Robert Hunter

Opening Reception

Friday, March 16

 6  –  9  pm

The event is FREE and open to all.  Refreshments will be served.

 

 

“Lineage” by Gail Erickson

 

 

Gail Erickson claims that her work is inspired by family, nature and the human form; it’s a product of her feelings, emotions and passion for the tactile nature of clay. She wants the viewer to experience her art, too. “My intent is to reveal yet conceal; allowing the viewer to develop a personal connection to a piece”, says Erickson. From manatees and birds to mermaids and colorful characters, there is something inherently natural about her creations. Gail has been expanding into mixed media and her “Soulful Expressions” series incorporates wood and other found objects with ceramics. Many of those objects have ties to family members, past and present.

 

Cutting Board by Robert Hunter

 

 

 

Whether it be a cutting board or a coffee table, the grains and colors of various woods are the focus of artist Robert Hunter. He is fascinated with what causes the different patterns to occur in the wood – sun, wind, rain, insects, you name it. Hunter creates exquisite functional woodwork that will blow you away. His cutting boards and cheese slicers are custom made from a variety of exotic hardwoods and in some pieces, you will see turquoise peeking out of the natural crevices of the wood. Although completely safe to use with foods, his boards are just too beautiful to hide away in a cabinet! Cleaning the boards is easy and with just a little TLC, the boards will keep their beauty and luster for a lifetime.

 

 

Besides his boards, Hunter has brought forth his mastery with other creations such as boxes, coasters and home furnishings. According to Hunter, wood offers a fascination, beauty and complexity in the grain. These rich, lustrous pieces just grow more beautiful with age and deserve to be on display.

 

Artisans on the Ave is located at 630 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth.

A “father” is more than the biological paternal source of our being. He is a person who cares and provides for us. He is a person who helps to set the standards, the family values and the example.

And, he wants you to spend a few moments with him on Father’s Day. Today’s life style is busy for both dads and kids. A little time with Dad on Father’s Day could be what he wants….So check out our selection of exquisite art handcrafted ART by local artists.
