Featured Artist Reception - Marlene Jones & Christine Dekkers

Featured Artist Reception - Marlene Jones & Christine Dekkers

Christine Dekkers, Acrylic Painting

Christine Dekkers is best known for her “Great Lines" Collections, which was showcased at the “Art Fusion Gallery, during International Art Basel Miami 2017." This a unique renaissance style of sculpted plaster and sand combined with egg temper, organic stone pigment on wood pallets was innovated in 2017. These collections are done in both monochromatic and compound color. Plaster paintings were done as early as the Egyptians and egg tempera was used before the 1500’s by Leonardo Da Vinci and Michael Angelo on pallets before the invention of Oils. Her “After the Bath II" from this collection won first place in the “Anatomy with Class” contest on Fine Art America. 

She is a multi medium artist ( Oil/Acrylics, Watercolor, Plaster 3-D sculpted paintings and egg tempera) Her ideation is usually first conceived in drawing vignettes and then designed digitally. " My vision is to express arts energy, through color or design, an artwork that will create enthusiastic interest to see further. When using color as the energy, I want to make the space come alive and dance. When using design as the energy, there must be elements of movement and intensity."  Some of her influences include; Tarkay, Toulouse Lautrec and Van Gogh. 

Christine has been an artist since 1987 and comes from a family of artists and engineers in varying mediums. She is a former executive for a fortune 500 and completed her studies at Becker College, The Leadership Institute and Thunderbird School of Global Management. 

 

Marlene Jone, HorseHair Pottery

Marlene Jones says “pottery is my personal passion.”  First introduced to pottery in Baltimore, Maryland in the 1960’s, Marlene studied with nationally recognized potter, Tom Supenski. In 1970, along with a potter-friend, she established a studio in Baltimore before moving to Florence, Italy in 1975. Living in Italy for four years, gave Marlene the opportunity to further her knowledge and love of the great masters of ceramic art. 

 

Upon returning to the States in 1979, Marlene began a 25 year-long, successful career in marketing. However, she never lost her love of pottery, and over the years collected the works of many well-know artists. 

Marlene creates stoneware, raku and horsehair pottery. Her work can be seen in Punta Gorda and in galleries located in Annapolis, Maryland and Wellington, Florida. As a member of Sea Grape Gallery, she displays many of her horsehair pieces. 

The process of making horsehair originated with the Plains Indians. Folklore has it that a Pueblo potter woman discovered the art form when her long hair accidentally blew and made an impression on the hot piece of pottery she was removing from her fire pit. Horses were very important to the Navajo people and they continue to honor their horses through the creation of horsehair pottery. They believed the indelible marks, each with its own story, make their horses invincible. 

In Marlene’s creation of horsehair pottery, she starts by throwing a vessel on a potter’s wheel, applies a clay slip, burnishes the piece and then bisque fires it in an electric kiln to remove water from the clay. The next step is where the unique piece of art is created. The bisque pot is fired to approximately 1300 degrees in a gas kiln and then removed quickly while still glowing hot. Marlene drapes a few of the long hairs from a horse mane or tail onto the hot clay. It instantly vaporizes and leaves the unique carbon trails and smoke patterns that are the hallmark of horsehair pottery. Additionally, Marlene is honored to create one-of-a-kind pieces for horse owners and friends by using tail or mane hair from their own horses. 

Marlene jokes that her apprenticeship to pottery has lasted more than 50 years and is still going strong.

Featured Artists Reception January 2018

Harbour View Gallery Featured Artists Reception Tuesday, January 9th 2018 6-8pm.

 

Barbara Broderick Stained Glass Artist and Roy John Fuller, Watercolor Artist.

 

Their work will be on display through January.

 

 The gallery is located at 5789 Cape Harbour Drive, Suite 104. In the Shops at Cape Harbour, Cape Coral, FL.

 

 

Roy John Fuller Bio

 

Roy John Fuller a.k.a the “Big Brush Man” is a native of Virginia but has lived on SW Florida for the past 35 years. Roy is a retired engineer and now spends his time creating watercolors using design principals that inspire him. Roy only uses the primary colors of red, blue and yellow, however he does like to use a warm and cool tone in each color. By combining warm and cool colors the watercolor paintings have more variety of temperatures. Roy starts his watercolor paintings with a simple value sketch. This allows him to adjust the positions of his dark and light values so the painting will be more appealing. Three is a magic number in Roy’s painting. He only paints three trees, rocks, mountains, birds, or houses to complete his paintings. Roy offers watercolor workshops in Florida, Virginia, and Costa Rica.

 

 

 

Barbara Broderick Bio

 

Barbara Broderick is proud to be a Cape Coral resident and a Chicago native. Her work is meant to capture the beauty of everyday moments. She is not your typical stained glass artist. All of her designs come from her original drawings. She captures the beauty of glass with the way light can make it radiate and glow. Using metal and light as part of her medium, she creates shadows giving dimension and depth to her pieces. With the use of her kiln, her art also includes 3-D stained glass. It is meant to feel to come alive in light and literally pop out at you. This unique aspect, signature of her artwork, makes each piece truly exceptional. None of her art is ever duplicated; owning her work is owning the original.

        Beverly Spana, Glass Painting

        Beverly Spana Funktional Art began in 1997 with her first experience in glass painting.  Finding her inspiration for that turned her to furniture painting, floor cloth painting, some jewelry making, and glass fusing.  

        Here, at Harbour View Gallery, she is featuring glass painting. With emphasis on the glass painting, each piece is painted by her.  French porcelain paints created specifically for glass and porcelain are used in the process.  After the painted glass cures it requires a low temperature firing for permanence and durability to hold up to everyday use.  Because of this process the items can be placed in the dishwasher.  The more delicate glass should be hand washed in order to avoid breakage.

        Bev is originally from Massillon Ohio and was transplanted to Nokomis Florida in 1966 with her family.  She’s been a resident of Cape Coral since 1978.  Her family and friends and pets are her greatest assets/loves.  They inspire her in all that she does.

        Judi Fuchs, Photographer

        Judi Fuchs hails from New York and is a graduate of the School of Visual

        arts with a degree in cartooning. She began her career in photography at

        Norcross Greeting Cards and while teaching special education, continued

        to pursue photography as a hobby. Digital photography has allowed her to

        further develop her passion for creating images of natural settings, animal

        life, and flowers. She has lived in Bonita Springs over the past 18 years,

        providing ample opportunity for her to capture the textures and colors of

        Southwest Florida with her unique eye.

        Her intent is to express the wonders and beauty of nature that exist in the

        local environment.  she is fascinated with the textures and colors that

        surround us.  She tries to enhance her photographs with different techniques by using

        her computer to capture different visual effects. She hopes to continue to grow her talents so that she can best create appreciation of the world around us.

         

        Francine Gerson, Fused Glass Artist

        Francine Gerson has tried to allow her world travels to stimulate her glass pieces. She visualizes how a finished piece will look with the light from the front and from behind. She starts by placing pieces of iridescent or colored glass on a base backing. Then she adds glass from the same color family or contrasting glass.  Francine then rotates her creation throughout the process so she can see it from different directions. Then she fires her piece once or twice in the kiln to get the desired effect and shape.

        Francine’s art training started early at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Art Institute. She started her stained glass training at the Standing Rock Studios in Kent, OH.  After moving to Florida in 2005, Francine took classes in fused glass at the Center of the Arts of Bonita Springs. She found this medium of working with glass to be what she was looking for. She continued training in Bonita and the Cape Coral Art Studio before she ventured out on her own.

        Francine’s commissions include creating the League of Environmental Education Vision Award presented to Clyde Butcher and the annual Academy of Geriatric Emergency Medicine Awards for outstanding achievement.
