Featured Artist

JoAnn Haydocy

JoAnn will be visiting the gallery November 24-26 from 1:00-4:00.

I started my career selling and designing scientific borosilicate glassware for the educational and research arena. I soon became aware that I loved glass and all the qualities of that medium. The scientific side of me began to develop into other projections and finally into art. I started the artistic side of glass about 7 years ago. The fundamentals are the same but when color is introduced a new set of rules develop. Kiln formed glass is equal amounts of science and art. The science came easy and the artistic side had to be schooled.

I have studied with the top names in kiln formed glass across the nation. Each workshop gives me new skills and information to continue the evolution of my own work. Because I am drawn to nature I strive for movement or life force in my work. Birds are my favorite creature on earth. I started to incorporate them into my work this past year. The feather structure must convey movement even when the birds are at rest. To be successful with that feat, I use colors in minute amounts to imply layers of bone and feathers.

Natural landscapes are a gift from nature. To see a body of water with depth and movement, I must have layer upon layer of fine glass to illustrate that complexity. Glass frit design is similar to the impressionist paintings. If you look closely at the artwork, you can see tiny points of color. When you move five feet or more away from the piece, a more cohesive picture is developed for the viewer. I wish to move that viewer either with memories or just the beauty of the artwork itself.

As the artistic side of me moves into the future, I look at the world in shades of COE 90 glass. The color range is limited. If one mixes blue and red paint - shades of purple appear. With glass you have dots of blue and dots of red. They do not mix into a new color. Therefore, with science, experience, and a lot of heat I get that purple color by the challenge of layering colors not mixing. Therefore, I believe kiln formed glass is as much science as art.

Theme of the Month: Quilt Wall


Featured Artist

Barbara Pelowski

Patchwork boxes and fine enameling.

Growing up in central California, in a family that encouraged creativity; I found that it took only a few semesters of college to adopt an art major, leaving other subjects behind forever.

Enamels have been my passion since the mid 1960’s when--while earning a teaching license--I was assigned to an enameling class. This exploration continued with several enameling instructors in the Milwaukee area and a membership in Wisconsin Designer Crafts Council.

In 1980 I began working with a strip-piecing method developed by the Seminole Indians. In my work, patched strips were used as the colorful tops of fabric boxes with matching cloisonné enamel latches. In more recent years inspiration for the box tops has come from interesting fabrics, traditional patchwork designs, hand dying and other surface design techniques.

Often the fabric seems to speak to me about what to do with the box. A lively bright colored cat fabric used for a lining may suggest a Seminole strip in intense primary colors with a companion fabric for the outside of the box. Other fabrics may lead to the color play in a traditional patchwork block. Still others may suggest a folk art design.

The use of enameling and patchwork together is an extremely unusual combination. The time spent painting the enamels, seeking out interesting fabrics while traveling, manipulating colors, as well as designing and sewing fabric are enjoyable and satisfying to me.


Event LUMINARY NIGHTS, December 1-2, 6:00 PM-9:00

The town of Tubac wants to thank all our customers and visitors with a luminary celebration. The whole town will be lit up and many of us will offer cookies and libation. The FMAG will have egg nog plain and spiked. Come say hi to Pat, Gretchen and Karen.

Feel Good Jewelry

She also had a large ceramics studio in New York, where she taught classes and ran a wholesale/retail business in ceramics. As she was transitioning away from ceramics, Precious Metal Clay was just beginning to come into use. Denise has begun working in this material and continues to explore metal work with both clay and sheet metals.

Theme of the Month: “Desert Life”-celebrating animals and places of the desert

Featured Artist

   

Lynne Jordan

Lynne was born in Durango, Colorado where her father was chief ranger of Mesa Verde National Park Her life has consisted of living in western national parks: Shasta Lake National Recreation Area in California; Olympic National Park in Washington; Crater Lake National Park in Oregon; and to the Southwest Region Office in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Lynne's husband was also a ranger for the National Park Service, allowing her to live in Point Reyes National Seashore in California as well as Lake Mead National Recreation Area near Boulder City, Nevada , where now widowed, she continues to reside.

A great deal of her childhood was spent hiking among the hidden glens where she would sit for hours watching the private life of "wild" unfold. She was able to move in nature unobserved. Most people cannot return to the places of their youth as Lynne can National parks don't
change. For those who are unable to get "behind the scenes," Lynne would like to paint them for you. Her work reflects her love of the American West.

Lynne has studied art at the University of Oregon, New Mexico State University, and the Lesnick Art Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Her Southwestern influenced work is represented in dozens of galleries and she continues to keep up with the customers' demand for her work.

She has received numerous awards and one woman exhibitions. Her works are in oils, watercolors, and pastels. She has also mastered her state of the art technique in wood burning, and light carving on 3-dimensional driftwood that she calls pyrographic sculpture. This art form, originally called Pyrography, began in Russia, moved into Germany, and on to America in the 1700's. It was a ladies parlor room activity. Lynne has advanced this art form into the 21st century with realism in western and wildlife subject matter.

Theme of the Month: “Mask Wall”

Featured Artist

   

Margarethe Brummermann

Margarethe loves to draw on her background in the life sciences in her work as a watercolor painter.

Born and raised in Dortmund, Germany, she received her M.S. and Ph.D. in Biology from the Ruhr University of Bochum and the Max-Planck Institute in Bad Nauheim, Germany. She worked as a researcher and teacher at universities and field stations in France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Norway, New Zealand, and the United States and is now associated with the Entomology Department of the University of Arizona as well as running her own consulting business for natural history resources.

Parallel to her science career she developed her artistic talents. In Europe she had access to art museums and collections at an early age. As a teenager, she studied life drawing and etching at the Academy for Photography and Design in Dortmund, illustrated articles for an equestrian magazine, and experimented with many different media: sculpture, batik, oil paintings, and photographs. Today, watercolors are her preferred medium. In Arizona she refined her skills through studies at the Scottsdale Artists School, with instructors like Jim Kosvanec, Kevin McPhearson, Raleigh Kinney, and Matt Smith. She also spent three years in Laguna Beach, where she studied the work of the California Impressionists and Plein Air Painters.

In 2002 she and her husband Randall Kaul settled with four dogs and two cats in the pristine desert of the Tucson Mountains. The plant and animal life of her little desert preserve are the best inspiration for her paintings. The models for all of her cactus flowers and agave portraits are growing right in her backyard. Cottontails and Jackrabbits and also the neighbors’ horses drop in regularly to have their portraits taken.
