John Vander

 Medium: Painter, Mixed Media

You don’t need to spend a lot of time with John to know his passion for art. Thank goodness we met! While visiting Booth Bay Harbor in Maine, I checked out the Gold|Smith Gallery were I discovered his work. I was moved by his rhythm and bold colors he created in his ‘Classic Jazz’ series. Emotions run high and he is constantly working on pieces; some take years to complete. Life emulates with his creations and the sounds of music shine through. Each piece is classic, like the artist. His knowledge of art, culture, being in the moment and conversation had me intrigued. Splitting his time in studios in Maine and Italy have unique surroundings and a wide breadth of creations he continues to work on… Bravo!

Three Wheel Studio

Medium: Pottery

I love Dwo Wen Chen’s story behind his passion for clay. His work surprises, amazes and keeps me seeking more of this talented wheel throwing gift. His subjects are just as unique as his color schemes. With exotic yet playful and oh-so eye-catching ability, each piece is tastefully executed. From playful childhood memories to hand placed organic leaves, each stage of his work it thoroughly planned and executed to perfection. Bravo!

Kate Martin Jewelry

Medium: Jewelry

I met Kate at an Open Studio a few weeks ago and immediately ‘got’ her work. With natured themes, hammered metals and textures I could tell she has been inspired all along… Her reflective patterns repeat in a harmonious way that make each piece a unique work of art. Her cuffs are stimulating and you want to wear every one!  Her glass beads are a whole new level of creativity. Check out Kate’s work.
