The Bead-n-Sisters share, “Chances are we that have met at a bead show on the east coast and we want to take this opportunity to say thank you for your support and inspiration. If we haven’t met yet, we look forward to hearing from you. We really are sisters, one in Florida and 2 in Massachusetts. In 2002, Susan visited a Florida bead shop and strung her first bracelet. Many thanks to Penny Gaulle for the encouragement to continue learning and exploring the beading world.”

The Creativity of Every Day Objects by Ray Gross Goes Worldwide

Ray Gross’ ceramic pieces are well-known in Palm Beach County galleries and exhibit venues. Hyper-realistic, his porcelain sculptures are often mistaken for the “real thing”.  His hand bag series has a waiting list! Everyday objects have been turned into art statements through his creative vision. The Rickie Report celebrates Ray’s imagination with a listing of upcoming exhibits, including Wiesbaden, Germany!

Ray Gross is an artist, sculptor and designer.  He was raised in South Florida in a creative home-setting, with his father who worked as a jeweler, painter and poet. His mother’s family is famous for their millinery business, designing ladies’ hats, especially in the Roaring 20’s styles.

Through The Buyers Market of American Crafts Council (PA) and Rosen Media (Baltimore, MD), Ray was invited to the American Craft Museum in New York City for a one-man SOLO Exhibition.  His hyper-realistic porcelain sculpture, “Harley” was an instant success and was exhibited throughout Museums on the East coast of the United States.  Many will remember seeing “Harley” at the Norton Museum, Boca Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art and at Art in Public Place at Palm Beach International Airport.
