Another First Friday Art Show at Wired Coffehouse,
111 N W 4th Street, Downtown Evansville
Featuring: Watercolors and Metalwork
By Jane Case Vickers
Oct. 5th – 28
Stop in for refreshments and take a look at the art.
When I was a young art student working in the fibers department at Edwardsville, I felt what I created needed to be powerful, making a loud statement. I would create large, museum sized pieces about important topics, striving to make my mark. That was then. Now, nearing 50, I just like to make things.
Two areas I enjoy working in are enamels and watercolors. In enameling -powdered glass enamels on are used with copper and steel. Heat of nearly 1500 degrees is used to melt the glass and adhere it to the metal. In watercolor, I find the pigment, water and paper combine in interesting ways. I have found the way I work in both processes there is a large amount of serendipity when you see how the elements come together.
I am fascinated by skies and plants and things I find. The Creator’s variety and attention to detail deeply marvels me and I appreciate the way exploring new media has opened my eyes in new ways. I hope you enjoy my art work.
