Dynamic Duos Exhibition At Celebrations Gallery

Celebrations Gallery & Shoppes in scenic Pomfret CT is hosting a new show next month, The Dynamic Duos Exhibition which will run from May 20th to July 3rd. Usually we artists are a solitary lot when it comes to our work but for this particular show , those participating have stepped outside the box and teamed up with a fellow artisan to create a variety of beautiful and creative works. I colaborated with the very talented jewelry artist Anna Mancini and we created the necklace you see above. I decided on a spring theme, pink tulips on a black background, which I then hand painted on 6 puzzle pieces and Anna took that pendant and created something quite magical around it, the beautiful beaded necklace that you see above . The postcard for the exhibit just arrived and I was blown away by it, the first thing I noticed was all the vibrant color, color, color. I cannot wait to go to the opening evening of the show next month and not only see the necklace in person but all the other beautiful works that the participating artists have colaborated on. If you are in the area, please stop by or you can visit Celebrations' website at http://www.celebrationsshoppes.com/ .
