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

Doshi2Doshi creates exquisite hand dyed clothing in original designs that range from contemporary to traditional.  Shibori, an ancient Japanese textile dyeing process, is the method she uses for her artistic expression.  The technique uses knotting, pleating, rolling, pressing or sewing during the dyeing process.  The resulting designs are the memories of the method used to resist the dye.

 

Doshi1

Doshi’s training is as a costume designer. In over 29 years of her career, she has created apparel for theatre, dance, television, ice skating, and theme parks. Doshi has received numerous awards including the Themed Entertainment Award for Excellence in costume design for Waterworld at Universal Studios Hollywood.  In 1999, Doshi took  these life experiences and began to create wearable art outside the theatrical arena.

Shibori, an ancient Japanese textile dyeing process, is the method she uses for her artistic expression. The technique involves knotting, pleating, rolling, folding or sewing different parts of a cloth to create a resisted area during the dyeing process. When the cloth is returned to its two-dimensional form, the design that emerges is the result of the three-dimensional shape. Color, the choosing and mixing of dyes, is an important and defining part of Doshi’s process. She works purely from instinct and intuition.

Doshi says, “My work in fiber arts reflects the constant changes I experience in my personal and spiritual life. I use my work to explore the forces of nature and the mysteries of the soul.”
