Details:  Inspired by Nature… with a Whimsical Twist – SheRa Kelley
Growing up in a big family that did a lot of camping, SheRa grew to love what the outdoors has to offer. Her Art is Truly inspired by Nature. Organic, colorful and something to see in every square inch.

SheRa works with Bright & Bold Alcohol Inks, Colorful Acrylics, Organic Oxidizing Iron & Copper Paints, Styrofoam, Drywall Mud…..Spices, Eggshells and Found Objects are her Favorite Texturizing Mediums, along with a few Gems and Glitter Dust here & there.

SheRa upcycles wherever she can. All her frames are from thrift stores. She has a large variety of found items gathered while out in nature, it’s amazing what can be found when your eyes are wide open. Neighborhood kids are constantly on the hunt for found items, always a little treasure pile outside her front door.

SheRa’s work inspires us all to keep our eyes open to the beauty that surrounds us every day. Is it a rusty bottle cap or the base of an earring? Is it a piece of old metal or the centerpiece of new creation to come? You can see the fun she has while creating and will make you look differently at what you see as trash and see it as a treasure…

Love Fills In – Elizabeth Ansley
Elizabeth Ansley’s body of work, Love Fills In, delves into acceptance and celebration of imperfections. The work begins with the abstraction of a personal breaking point and embraces the cracks of imperfection as a thing of beauty. Generally, her painting process is highly personal as a way to connect with a deeper self, allowing an unconscious flow of creativity. In her paintings, she fills the imperfections with love, a flow of color, metallic paint, or mixed media.

The concept is somewhat like that of the Japanese art form of Kintsugi, or golden joinery. It is a process of repairing cracked pottery by mending the broken areas with urushi, a lacquer combined with precious metals like gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to be hidden.

Elizabeth Ansley’s, Love Fills In, celebrates filling the cracks experienced in life’s journey with love, recognizing the connection we all have in common, imperfections.
