The artists showing work in the restaurant beginning November 4 ( don't forget to vote!) are--
Caeli Tolar & Eleanor Marshall.
What they have to say about their work; Caeli-- "A lifetime resident of Gainesville, I was raised, educated, and now work here. I guess you could say my roots run pretty deep in this town. Although I have never had any training in art, I've always enjoyed sketching and painting watercolors. I have a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and a Master of Historic Preservation from the University of Florida, so my art forms naturally from my interest in art, history, and design."
Join Eleanor as her art takes you “Everywhere You Want to Be.” Look at some of the world’s favorite destinations through a fresh set of eyes. The pieces come from her extensive travels through the United States, Canada, and Europe. She loves to find interesting places and gets lost behind her lens. Her talent for seeing what others often miss makes her photographs curious. The presentation method offers the audience a nostalgic quality that awakens fond memories of their own travel experiences. At the young age of 17, Eleanor’s art reminds the weary traveler of the joy of adventure. Her only question for her audience is…… Where would you want to be?
Jane Medved & Marie Hammer will be showing their art in the restaurant beginning October 7.
Here is what they have to say about their work :
Marie--- Wood is a new medium for me. I have been drawing and painting faces for most of my life. Recently I discovered a box full of oak palette scraps left over from my husband’s large wooden dogs. I felt the wood clinking through my fingers, and thought, “I can do something with this.” Once I started making faces, I kept finding different forms of wood scraps, bits of bark and sticks, old wooden objects. I do not carve and I rarely cut. I break and assemble and glue and screw whatever the wood suggests. Voila!
Jane Medved's paintings depict nature and human nature in Florida and around
the world. Her artwork has been shown at New York's Metropolitan Museum of
Art, Brooklyn Museum, and Museum of Arts and Design, and at Montana's
