Artist of the Month

  • Sue Alberti: Creating art is a form of meditation for me. I lose track of time and worries when I am in my studio. Art is a universal language and should be shared. When people look at my art, I hope they will smile! When I see all the beautiful colors, it makes me feel good and being able to wear all these wonderful colors (my jewelry) is just icing on the cake.

  • Mary Kelly-Stobert: My recent designs are explorations into the art of mixed media. Using forged metal, enamel, resins, glass and beads of all materials gives my pieces a unique one-of-a-kind charm. Nature both challenges and inspires me.

  • Kate Donahue: I create art simply because it calls me. One day I thought I should make jewelry, then I should make the beads, glass as well as ceramic. The thoughts never stop. When people look at my art, I hope they will see my work reflect in the light.
