"Boba Fett" Quilt by Pat Metcalf

Patricia Metcalf uses scissors to create beautiful one-of-a-kind quilts to enhance your home. She loved sewing as a child and carried her talent through the years as a quilter. Her fabric choices are inspired by the South Florida lifestyle she so enjoys. Pretty colors of pinks, greens, flamingos and palm trees are carefully cut by hand with scissors. She then places each fabric block in a layout to achieve her finished picture. The quilt blocks are sewn by hand or sewing machine as each stitch is made to perfection with detail and finishing. The results are amazing as each quilt comes to life when completed. She has taken a very old tradition going back hundreds of years and created a very contemporary look. Her art quilts can be hung on a wall to admire or used in a functional way in a bedroom or living area.

Del Foxton is a contemporary eco-artist making handmade paper into an art form of her own style. She is very passionate about environmental issues and delighted she can lessen her carbon footprint while indulging in this passion. Her artistry wall hangings give a totally unique, environmentally conscious look. Her process starts with a plentiful supply of exotic materials from local trees, leaves, bushes and more that she gathers in her travels. Following the circa 105 AD Chinese technique, Del creates art that can sometimes be colorfully vivid or serene like the ocean embedded with seashells and vegetation.

Wire Wrapped Gemstone by Pauline Denson 

 

 

Pauline Denson is a lapidary artist using natural rocks, crystals, gems, and minerals in her jewelry. She learned to identify precious stones and mineral specimens and uses her knowledge as she hunts for various rock pieces to turn into artistic wearable jewelry. She sometimes takes slabs of stone and grinds them into interesting shapes, and then polishes the different gems on finer and fine grits. She especially likes to use agates in her jewelry making.

Handmade Jewelry By Pauline Denson

 

This is a labor-intensive process which is very satisfying when completed. Pauline uses different wires to complement her natural selection of stones and gems. The wires enhance the vivid colors and markings of each rock. Her selection includes 14-caret gold filled and sterling to copper and brass wirings that she has entwined around the precious rocks.

Patricia McCleery has been fascinated with the amulets and talismans of ancient culturesThe ancient cliff dwellings of the Southwest inspired her to use Prehistoric Mammoth tusk, and Australian Boulder Opal in combination with silver and 22K gold to create pieces that connect us to a mysterious ancient message.  An ancient message retold in modern time.

After 25 seasons in Tequesta’s Gallery Square, they relocated in 2007 to a new venue — still in Tequesta, and only a half-block from US 1 instead of a half-mile. The boutique is now at 140 Bridge Road, just one short block south of Tequesta Drive. (If you drive down US 1, Bridge Road is where you’ll see the CVS Pharmacy and Texaco Service Station. Look for Gallery Five  four doors west of the Texaco Station.)

 

For the season, December-March, their showroom is open Monday through Saturday 10-5. For the rest of the year, they are open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 to 5, and at other times “when the spirit moves us.” Of course, they’ll be available by appointment. If you’re coming from out of town, we suggest that you call first (561-747-5555). You can always shop on-line 24/7 at www.gallery5.com
