Gin Blische’s Creations Are NOT Stuffed Animals! Meet This Master Needle Felter And Her Menagerie On October 19th At Artisans On The Ave

Wool sculptor, Gin Blische has created quite the niche for herself here in Palm Beach County. Needle-felted sculpture is unique in South Florida, but she feels just fine being a big colorful fish in a small tropical pond.  Her commitment to her art is the reason she has an impressive collection of unique creations on display at Artisans On The Ave Gallery in Lake Worth, Florida. Her colorful menagerie of creatures will sometimes have you doing a double take! How did a raccoon get into the Gallery window!  Her sculptures of all things woolen have garnered the interest of collectors from here to Hollywood CA where she was commissioned by FOX TV Network to create two sculptures for a TV show set.  Meet Gin on Friday, October 19th at Artisans on the Ave for their “Fantasy & Fairy Tales” Opening Reception!   The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks!  

 

 

 

THEY     ARE     NOT     STUFFED!  

Meet The Creations of Gin Blische

 

 

NEXT ART SHOW:

“Fantasy & Fairy Tales”

Featuring Gin Blische, Amelia Costa and Julie Naseef

Friday, October 19  

6 – 9 PM

Artisans On The Ave.  630 Lake Ave, Lake Worth Florida

 (free and open to the public, refreshments)

 

 

 

 

Gin Blische

 

 

 

A multitalented individual, Gin is also a member of INHOUSE, a South Florida based band she founded with her twin Sister. INHOUSE has performed with artists like Fleetwood Mac, Peter Frampton, Bonnie Raitt and Ziggy Marley among others. Recently, she is splitting her time between sculpting and preparing for the INHOUSE, 20th Anniversary Reunion Concert at the Norton Museum of Art’s, Art After Dark on February 22.

 

 

 

 

Display of Gin’s Creations at Artisans On The Ave Gallery

 

Working out of her home studio in Lake Clarke Shores, Florida, Gin surrounds herself with a palette of naturally dyed English sheep’s wool, llama wool and angora, just waiting to be turned into something fantastical!  Gin tells The Rickie Report, “I’m sure I am not alone when I say that expression can be the most important element of any sculpture or painting. When I use the term “expression,” I mean it quite literally, although people express themselves in their art no matter what their subject or medium.  I’m just not that deep with my creations. I create to create emotion, but that emotion comes from the expressions on the faces and posture of each of my sculptures.  Many people have said they see me in my work. My eyes, my expressions, no matter the creation”.

 

 

 

Another creation by Gin Blische

 

 

 

 

 

She goes on to say, “Making creations that look like Gin the bear, Gin the owl, Gin the bird. Before you start thinking of me as a narcissist, please don’t. It may happen inadvertently. I may be creating my twin sister, the woman dearest to my heart.  I’ve stared at my face my entire life without looking in the mirror. It’s no wonder my sculptures look a little like me.  When I look at them though, I see the eyes of my dog Ralph. He had the most sensitive eyes.  I loved to look into them while I pet his brow. He filled me with so much love. I try to recreate that emotion with every piece I create. Sometimes I almost get there. :)”

 

 

 

 

Gin Blische’s Pelican

 

 

 

Gin is the daughter of artist Herbert Weintraub, who is best known for his oil and acrylic cityscapes and nautical and rural American paintings. Perhaps this is why the idea of creating art as a career is not foreign to her. She spent many hours admiring her Dad, hard at work at his easel. Her youth was spent going to art shows in Greenwich Village and Central Park. She studied Fashion Design and Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York before embarking on a career in Fashion throughout the 1980’s. Her illustrations won over Liz Claiborne before her studies ended at the reputable school.

Gin Blische’s Bongo Bear
Gin tells The Rickie Report, “Commissions have always been challenging considering I am not a portrait artist. Most of the commission work I do, has an element of fantasy to it… almost a caricature of the subject. That style has never steered me wrong. It is my style. Truth is, there is nothing more special than a  creation of someone or something you love. As far as gifts go, it is extremely thoughtful. Which brings me to my next point. If you are looking for something original to give as a gift this holiday, walk into a local gallery. If you don’t see anything you love but you do see a style you like, commission something. Make sure you do it soon…holiday seasons get very busy for most artists”.

 

 

Holiday Pet Portrait Commissions by Gin Blische

 

Pet Portraits:  With the Holiday season around the corner, the perfect gift for someone you love may be a felted one. These collectibles are a unique addition to any home and can include anything from a 3D portrait of your pet’s face in a frame or a small full body portrait.  This is the perfect gift idea for that person who adores their pet(s).  We suggest you get your order in early for Holiday gifts. 

 

 

 

 

Classes Offered:  Gin offers classes to groups of 5 or more ages 10 and up which includes supplies. Contact Gin to book a date for your party. Day or Evening classes available. This is a great idea for Birthday, Retirement, Holiday or just plain Crafter Parties. Gin will travel and teach in your home for an extra fee.

 

 

 

Crafting is a great tool for building confidence, forming friendships, and developing focus.

“Hook Line and Sinker”

 

Artwork by Jennifer Love Gironda

June 23-July5 “Hook Line and Sinker”We go from the air and tree tops, to the deep blue sea with this show. Nautical themes are what we anticipate, with lots and lots of fish and sea creatures. Once again, if this does not evoke “fish” in you, you can interpret this in any other way. 

 

 

July 7- July 19:

“Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish”

Shoe Fetish Gallery View

 

July 7- July 19: “Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish” This proved to be last year’s favorite show among our patrons who purchased more works than in any other show of the year . We like adding some levity to the hot summer by introducing the foot theme into our mix. Let’s get some pictures of these works into the gallery a few weeks early so we can get some more TV coverage on this. We want to bring the shoe loving crowds into the gallery to purchase your works. Last year some retired shoe manufacturers came into the gallery to buy.

 

August 4-August 16:

“Peanuts Rising”

 

 

Artwork by Bea Doone-Merena

August 4-August 16: “Peanuts Rising” formerly known as “The Male Form” We are repeating this successful special request exhibition. As in the past, this special show came from artists who felt slighted by the creations and shows that mostly feature the female form. They wanted equal time We welcome your interpretations.

 

 

August 18 to August 30

” Bread and Roses”

 

?????   Your Interpretation ?????

 

August 18 to August 30- ” Bread and Roses” in honor of Women’s Equality Day. The title, “Bread and Roses”, came from the 1912 Laurence Mill strike where women fought for their rights, asking for raises for bread, but for roses in their lives as well. This exhibition honors women, their contribution to the world and to art. Just being a woman in the arts (with or without a message) brings honor to the exhibit.
