The Colors of Spring show runs from May 22 through June 19, 2022. Meet the Artists at the Show Opening on May 22 from 1-4:00 pm.
Artists Jennifer Hudson, Deborah Maklowski, Nancy Lee Davis, and Carlos Zepeda have focused on the color shift from winter into spring for their show Colors of Spring, using various mediums including hand-cut paper, oil and acrylic paints, colored pencils, mixed media, and unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry designs.
Jennifer Hudson – hand cut-paper and fine art acrylic ink painter
Using only the tip of her X-acto knife Jennifer creates a lace-like three-dimensional world of animals, and the occasional mythical creature, out of paper. Jennifer “…wished to create pieces that show the rebirth and hope of spring after the cold starkness of winter.”
Carlos Zepeda – jeweler and silversmith
Carlos’ creations are a creative marriage of his deep appreciation of nature, and his master level skill with silver and natural stones. Carlos was raised by his grandmother in a small village in Belize, where he first worked creating jewelry by carving “stones” from conch shells. He still works with conch, and other shells, but he’s come a long way.
Deborah Maklowski, CPSA, CPX
Deborah works in a variety of genres, including impressionist plein air landscapes in pastel and acrylic, representational drawings in colored pencil, graphite and ink, and abstracts in colored pencil, acrylic, and mixed media. She seeks to share with the viewer the sublime beauty she finds in the world all around her, in forms both natural and man-made.
Nancy Lee Davis – contemporary impressionist painter and colorist
Nancy Lee paints with loose brush marks and vivid colors, her oil paintings have a strong abstract quality, though she paints representationally, loving to include people in her painting, especially children. Nancy chooses her colors carefully, having studied the healing quality of colors she uses this knowledge in her paintings.
