One of the many strengths of this show is its intimate, boutique nature which allows art lovers and collectors to engage the artists about their inspiration, process and what makes them unique within the highly-competitive realm of fine arts and fine crafts. But Executive Director Patty Narozny employs a number of other time-honored techniques to make Hot Works’ shows a positive experience both for participating artists and patrons.

 

 

First and foremost, she enlists a team of art professionals with more than 120 years of combined experience to judge the work of the hundreds of applicants who wish to participate in Hot Works’ shows. Narozny is choosey, and her interest goes well beyond digital images and paper applications. She visits many of her artists in their homes and studios to make sure that their work makes a contribution to the quality of her shows and a statement in the collections of the people who patronize them.

But Narozny also understands that most of the folks who come to her shows are far from experienced collectors. In fact, many are newbies – or have yet to take the plunge and buy their first artwork. They are still in the process of defining their tastes and have yet to figure out what they like and why is speaks to them. Which is why she builds variety into every Hot Works show. Further, she and her team strive to ensure that the work presented covers a wide range of price points. There is art for every budget. Last but not least, purchasers can buy with confidence. Because Narozny does her homework so meticulously, they know they’re not only getting an original work of art from a credentialed artist, they are getting value as well.

While the business side of the equation is serious work, attending a Hot Works show is a relaxing, casual experience. It’s like taking a leisurely stroll through a park filled with artwork. There’s no pressure to do anything more than look and envision what that great painting, photograph or sculpture might look like in your home or office. And if you need a little help in the latter category, all of the exhibiting artists are only too happy to bring one or more artworks to your house after hours so that you can see exactly what it looks like on your bookcase, floor or wall.

Santiago Perez is a representational visual artist depicting the beauty, drama, and tragedy of life using primarily narrative figurative art. He strives to depict emotion, romanticism and realism in different mediums but primarily oil. His works aim to tell a story of inspiration and hope.
  The richness and translucency of colors achieved through multi-layered glazing techniques is what gives his works captivating and life like qualities.     http://www.santiagoperezart.com

Suzanne Connors
Fiber

http://www.ayafiberstudio.com 

I love art and I have always enjoyed making art. After trying many different mediums, I always return to fiber and textile art.  As a seamstress and a designer, textiles have always intrigued me; especially if the fiber has a beautiful texture that makes you want to reach out and touch it! I love layering color and combining different tactile fibers.

Hand Dyed One of A Kind Scarf by Susan Connors

 

What I love about fiber art is the surprise element – the mixture of the fabric, the dye and the resist create different combinations and patterns that are only revealed at the final step. The magic when the freshly dyed indigo comes out of the vat and turns from green to blue right before your eyes!  It is always a surprise when I unwrap a freshly dyed piece of fabric! Like opening a Christmas Gift! Another thing I love about fiber is that there are no “mistakes”!  It is just like life; everything is always subject to change, and the mistakes lead to growth in my art.  The imperfections are all part of the creative process. I typically use African Adinka symbols as inspirations in my batik prints and create my own stamps.  I am always learning new techniques and experimenting with them. Every piece created is a unique one of a kind original!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sarah LaPierre
Painting

http://www.sarahlapierre.com

 

 

Thick paint is a collection of work created by award winning artist Sarah LaPierre. Palette knives and heavy bodied acrylic paints provide the full textures and vibrant colors that are characteristics of her style. Sarah gains her inspiration from the beautiful sceneries throughout her home state of Florida, with special focus skyward. Her late father, artist Joseph LaPierre remains the strongest influence in her creative ventures.

Lonee Cataldo
Candles

http://www.blueflamecandles.com

 

 

Blue Flame Candles are handmade with meticulous attention to every detail. We use a soy-blend wax, cotton wicks and no added dye. What sets Blue Flame apart from other candles is exceptional fragrance. Being true luxury candles, they have amazing fragrance throw and a slow, beautiful, complete burn.  Being a connoisseur of richly fragrant luxury candles and getting tired of paying exorbitant prices for them, I set out to learn how to create them. It took a great amount of work, many months of research, and hours of daily testing before my benchmark of product excellence was achieved.

Handmade Blue Flame Candles by Lonee Cataldo

 

 

In October 2009 Blue Flame Candles was born. Today, Blue Flame is a true family run company. My daughter Madylyn does the pouring, while I do the labeling and all other tasks related to running Blue Flame.  We continue to test new waxes and oils to maintain the standard of superior quality that Blue Flame clients appreciate and expect.  I exhibit at art & craft shows throughout Florida from Oct. thru May. During the hot summer months, I’ll be in Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
