Artists in the Woods to present studio show

A group of local artists are putting on an open art studio this weekend, featuring everything from paintings and drawings to hand-made books and journals, found object and up-cycled art, as well as hand-dyed and individually designed art apparel.

“Artists in the Woods” is set for 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at Jean Wyatt’s Art Studio, 895 Sporseen Road.

Jean Wyatt of J Wyatt Art, invited local artists Renne Emiko Brock, Diane Fatzinger, Lisa Gilbert and Genaveve Starr to join her for this special one-day show and sale.

Wyatt creates “art that makes you smile,” she says about her whimsical and colorful paintings, drawing and handmade journals. Each journal is hand-bound in a variety of bindings with covers of decorative papers and fabrics.

Starr says, “Experimentation with letter shapes led to my unique style of painting; I paint with wooden tools that I make myself.”

Gilbert worked as an illustrator for nearly a decade before switching to another field but several years ago, she says, “I found book arts which incorporates design, color, texture, illustration, as well as all types of media including fiber.” Her work has evolved to consist of 3-D book structures and sculptures, cards and practical gifts that incorporating materials collected from world travels.

Fatzinger says, Some people use a camera to capture a scene. I use pebbles, driftwood, sea glass, and other natural materials I find.”

Emiko Brock creates hand-dyed and custom fabric art apparel, goods, and gear “for the superhero in us all that embrace the empowerment of brilliant hues and individualism expressed in appearance.”
