Reception, May 4th from 4:30 to 7:00pm.
The reception is a time to celebrate a few of our members at one event.
We are honoring artists:
John Selmer, Holly Spier, El Towle
Please come and celebrate the arts together.
John Selmer is a photographer who tries to convey a sense of "being there for the first time." His imagination and artistry is expressed through his skilled use of a variety of digital options. John is one of May's featured artists at the Artist in Residence gallery in St. Albans, VT.
My name is Holly Spier, and I’ve been very blessed to live in some beautiful places. The camp and home in Vermont where I grew up were surrounded by mountains, streams, rocks, trees, and lots of wildlife. The sights during my travels in Arizona amazed me. The light is so pure and bright. The ancient landscapes made me think a dinosaur could come from behind the massive rock formations at any moment.
These influences and my sheer love for nature are the reasons I make jewelry. I keep my settings clean and sleek. The stones are what I want to showcase. Their individual beauty stands on it’s own which should be the focus of the piece. I simply construct a way you can wear a fabulous creation from nature on your body.
My studio located in Jeffersonville, VT is filled with an incredible selection of interesting stones. I welcome you to come, and we can design a piece for you to treasure.
El Towle's work is eclectic in both subject matter and mediums. His forty years as an art teacher provided him with the opportunity to explore seemingly endless modes of expression.
While he favors oil and acrylic painting, he enjoys departures into silk, clay, watercolor, and other materials. El is one of this month's featured artists at the Artist In Residence gallery in
St. Albans, Vermont.
