Art Exhibit: 10 Hands
November 21st - December 31st
Artist Reception: Saturday, November 22nd; 6-9 pm
10 Hands is the work of five local, Paonia artists who come together to present a unique show of fine arts and crafts for the holiday season. “Piece On Earth” is the name that local librarian Laura Lee Yates calls her quilt work. She first became obsessed with quilting in the 1970s. Her current works are inspired by her colorful stash, global cultures, and the natural world. Masa Holle presents a collection of ornaments made from leaves hand picked from nature. These leaves have undergone a filigree process and have been dipped in iridescent copper, 24 carat gold, and sterling silver. They have been embellished with ribbon, beads, and wire in order to make them striking and beautiful art pieces for the home for the holidays and all year round. Andrea Lecos has spent many years experimenting with watercolor and acrylic paints, as well as fine pencil/pen and charcoal. She is often inspired by the natural world and her musical background, giving her work an organic feel. Currently, Andrea is working with wood and linoleum block prints, combining acrylic paint, handmade paper, found objects and poetry. She also recycles antique windows to create one and two-sided, mixed media art pieces. Ann Marie Gambino began making jewelry eighteen years ago and hasn't stopped yet. She draws from an eclectic blend of Austrian crystals, stones, and pewter to reflect nature in her original designs. Marianna Aley has lived in Paonia for the past ten years and is a native of Colorado. Her work reflects the landscape of Western Colorado. She grows flowers in the summer months and designs gardens which is also an inspiration for her paintings. All of the paintings are done in oils. Marianna also uses photography and watercolor.
