Hand carved Pens and Corkscrew by Howard Fleischer

 

These male artists create with the determined focus of their vision and the strength of their talented hands. A potter uses a gentle touch to form his clay and molds it into a perfectly formed vase or bowl. The piece is finished after he decides on a glazing color from a vast spectrum of choices and then goes in the kiln to be fired.

Original Fine Art by  Herbert Weintraub

 

 

The painter is inspired by his surroundings and dreams that dance in his head in an abstract manner. He then gently or boldly holds his brush and applies the strokes to his choice of canvas, paper or other mediums. The photographer holds the camera with his hands and sees the images through his eyes and then transfers them onto a selected background.  The poet and writer grips the pen as the words flow to the paper, grabbing the reader’s attention and taking them to a distant place as their eyes read his thoughts. The pen was made by the artist’s creative hands.

Photography by EJ Morales

 

The artist who makes one of a kind wearable art such as jewelry or fiber pieces  uses his hands with precision to make his art, sometimes applying jewels and gems. The powerful touch of the artist can turn steel into sculpture with the torch and fire used to sculpt raw beams into works of art. His strong hands work as he welds together heavy pieces that can also transform found objects into functional art, such as mirrors and lamps.

Hand carved bowl by Carl Schneider

 

The woodworker carves works of beauty from the bare pieces of a tree limbs or trunk that was be found in the woods or given to him by friends. His hands touch the sometimes exotic patterns and grains and he foresees the object it will become. His hands grip the tools to make intricate designs. The hands of the wood-turner work combine with the wood on a lathe and the raw wood transforms into an object of beauty. The scars and lines on the artist’s hands reveal the true passion and struggles which allow each of us to enjoy and be thankful for his artistry.

“Peacock” Wood turned Vessel by Carl Schneider

 

Teacher of wood turning and award winning artist, Carl Schneider began woodturning in 1997. Carl is gratified by creating many types of pieces, enhancing the natural character of wood and experimenting with texturing, carving and coloring. He loves collaborating with Mother Nature to create useful and beautiful objects from wood. As someone said these objects combine the “art of nature and the nature of the artist”. Carl shares, “After trees are cut down for various reasons I extend their lives by creating useful and beautiful objects that people will enjoy forever”.

 

ROBERT HUNTER

Exotic Hand made Wood cutting boards by Robert Hunter

 

 

 

As a young boy, Robert started woodworking. It was under  his father’s guidance this that he learned the disciplines of this fine craft… Not to rush the work and work with the wood. Let the wood tell you what you have to do,” Robert of  Blu Paw Woodworking, tells us.  “I still use the lessons I learned long ago and today rely heavily on grains and colors in my work. Whether it be a cutting board or a coffee table, these grains and colors are my focus. I am fascinated with what causes the different patterns to occur in the woods; from wind or rain; too much or too little sun or tiny insects that boar the holes that cause the streaks in Ambrosia Maple. With the exotic woods I work with, each piece is always one of a kind. I will always be surprised by what I find under the bark of a tree and how it will lend itself to the beauty of that creation”.

EJ  MORALES

Undersea Memorabilia, Photography by EJ Morales

 

To EJ Morales, the camera is a unique window to the world he sees; a filter, if you will…. Its magic enables him to share his vision with others. Often literal, his photography carries an abstract flavor seeking to convey emotional meaning. EJ has  been taking photographs from a very early age. His work has evolved and ranges from merely documenting the literal to more sublime pursuits. He covers subjects from wildlife both above and below the water as well as land/cityscapes, all the while endeavoring to imprint the images with his own unique artistic flavor.

 

 

ROBERT BEN KLINE

Exotic Dog Sculpture by Robert ben Kline

 

Robert has worked in clay for nearly 20 years. His work is comical, humorous, and perhaps a tad absurd. An exotic dancing dog in a “gentleman’s club” for dogs, no less! A Harley-Davidson unicycle! A giant apple with an equally giant worm, having a rather human face! He mixes a variety of techniques, from wheel thrown to hand building to sculpture. He is forever exploring new subject matter, so that his first pieces in a subject may be straight forward… and as it evolves, his artistic voice comes through. Something will look off kilter; that strange pose… The person is part of a bicycle…Something is different… Something seems slightly odd… After all, this is art, not a mere replication of life!

 

 

 

When you visit the 3 showrooms within our gallery you will be amazed at the selection of exquisite art handcrafted by 40 local artists.
