Medium: Black Ink
My favorite artist of all time…
A great achiever not only in fine art, but a prodigy piano player and a famous draftsman by 20. Influenced by Japanese art, Art Nouveau styles and Parisian culture, his life was taken at 26 from Tuberculosis.
Medium: Sterling Silver Jewelry
It’s not often that I write about jewelry but Chelsea is an acception. I attended WaterFire on a beatiful night in July and found a nice surprise as I located a block of artists under neatly organized white tents displaying their wares. Chelsea E. Bird was one of them. Her creations are organic and colorful. I love the fine detail and simplistic design she chooses, not to mention solid sterling silver. I may have to purchase a little color for my summer attire! Beautiful work Chelsea!
Medium: Pencil (& copier & colored pencils)
The Dryden Gallery in Providence was the perfect setting for Tony’s exhibition. Not only was the space interesting, open, and inviting, but equally so was the artwork. I was immediately drawn to the peice I purchased as it’s part of Rhode Island’s long history. The Plum Beach lighthouse. Tony’s pen and ink images are worth noting. The subjects are local, (most of them), detailed and full of personality. I am a pen-and-ink kinda girl who appreciates this medium. Visit his site and take journey into Rhode Island’s past…
