Artist showing their work include:
Denmy Lopez is known and loved as our Manager in Charge, but his secret life as an artist will eventually give him the wider acclaim. His work combines the raw energy of life on the streets growing up in Miami, coupled with the dicipline and steadfast commitment to his craft. He works on canvas and reclaimed windows.
Robert Hernandez reaches into his Cuban heritage to embrace the passion and pragmatism that defines an island world. Diverse in media expression, Robert is sharing some of his fabrications. Art and function dancing together in one choreography.
Larissa Mondriaan is no happier than when she has a paint brush in one hand and a screw gun in the other. Creative, hard working, and compassionate, Lari brings her empathy to her craft.
Sean Colson work is comical, playful, imaginative and loving. Sean grew up in Sarasota, born into a family of acclaimed artists. After graduating from Sarasota High School in 1979, he started a bronze casting supply business and a bronze foundry. He reproduces, repairs and restores historic Sarasota statuary, and also designs original works including cast stone.
Juliette E. Edgerton – The Resourceress – creates a line of unique jewelry and sculpture. “Each of my designs is meticulously born with meaningful purpose. I am enthralled with searching for the most distinctive treasures to create my jewelry and then I spend countless hours making my elaborate designs. I pour my passion into these one -of -a -kind creations and thrive on shifting their energy and giving them a new life.”
Capt David Dessauer – Gyotaku Artist. “Gyotaku” is an ancient Japanese painting technique used by fisherman to document their catch since the 1800’s. By painting on a fish the image is transferred onto a unique paper. The artist offers Originals & Reproductions in hand made frames made of locally salvaged woods.
Karen DeHahn creates modern stained glass windows using themes inspired from life. Her vibrant colors, dynamism of shapes, and maticulous implementation, inpires the viewer. “Creating a design, and then finding the perfect glass for each part of the design, makes glass cutting very satisfying. So much glass, so little time.”
Justin Letourneau transforms images of reclaimed materials into funky prints with a modern artistic design. These edgy but comforting simulacrum abstract the vintage into contemporary, leaving the viewer nostalgic and invigorated at the same time.
Invited Visiting Artists: Ellen Norris, Kate Blethen and Taylor Michiels
