The Dog Show: Loving our 4 legged Friends
Barbara Duzan - Mixed media & bronze sculpture
Jaime Ellsworth - Oil Paintings
WaterWorks Gallery is pleased to present the oil paintings of Jamie Ellsworth and the bronze & mixed media sculptures of Barbara Duzan. Both artists, multiple dog owners themselves, convey the love of their canine friends with unique styles that exude of love and humor.
Jaime Ellsworth, painter of dogs, cats and horses has a collection of creatures that range in size from very small to a couple of miniature horses. Jaime’s simplified color palette with her graphic portray of these animals convey a sense of dignity, and perhaps humor that we humans find in our animal world. A look, a touch and a lick, our animals demand attention from all of our senses. Looking at Jaime’s work, give us entrance into this private special world.Barbara Duzan, amazes us with her artistic versatility, whether she is beading an animal form that hangs on the wall, mixing up the plaster of Paris for her mixed media works or is modeling the clay for a new bronze casting, Barbara continues her exploration in all these mediums with her animals. She will catch a puppy playing on their back, a trained circus dog balancing a hoop on a horse and a dog sitting quietly waiting for what is next. Her work is pleasing to touch and a delight for the eye.
Presented at the gallery on Saturday, June 22, at 2PM, Barbara and Jaime will walk us through their works, sharing the inspirations behind and process .Then from 4-7 PM the gallery hosts a reception for the artists.
