Painting, Illustration, Monotype Prints
109 Pelican Way
Kat Rose - "My work reflects my love of chemistry, geometry, and mathematics; and clay just feels so good in my hands. For me the magic happens in the periodic table of the elements as I “paint with molecules”. I develop all of my own glazes and investigate molecular interactions to create crystalline growth, feathering, textures, and atmospheric reactions. Some of my work is functional, some sculptural: all share my curiosity of the interaction between geometric and organic forms. I have always loved looking at things with a magnifying glass. My glazes invite this kind of close inspection of the frozen movement within the glaze surface."
Rebecca Cook - "Paintings, original illustrated children’s books, cards, and monotype prints fill my studio space, the hub of my creativity this year. Over the last several years I have produced two very whimsical card lines, and recently completed my children’s picture book: Calvin Splinter and His Splendid Splinter Ideas. Parents and grandparents: be sure to sign up for a copy of this wonderfully illustrated book designed and written for ages 4-9. Across from my illustration board stands my very productive Ettan etching press, which continues to pump out colorful abstract prints every spring. Choose from a wide variety of images inspired by the lush vegetation, blue water and sunny skies surrounding our island. Monotype demonstrations are planned for early afternoon on both Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to get yours hot of the press!"
