The Female of the Species – Part I

Our traditional invitational all women artists show opens August 2nd. Over 20 artists are represented in our biggest show of the year. Art mediums range from photography to pastels, acrylics, water colors and mixed media.

We have more jewelry artists this year including one of a kind necklaces, bracelets and earrings by California jeweler Denise Hazleton. Others include Raina Bradshaw, Sharon Moore, Karen Wasser and our latest jewelry artist, Eileen Rouse. We are looking forward to having a special trunk show with Denise some time in August or September – we’ll keep you posted!

Special right now is a tribute to the release of the Downton Abbey movie. The movie will be released in September and we’ll have a little area devoted to the look of the Abbey including a fantastic portrait of Maggie Smith in porcelain by Jerri Cook. Another setting will showcase an exquisite bronze figure of Lakshmi, the goddess of abundance. She will be joined by Quan Yins, other female deities and a rare antique female ancestor figure.
