Dan Newman – Mixed Media

Dan Newman

“I have used all media, but my focus has been on two-and three dimensional art forms including painting, drawing, ceramics, glasswork, as well as integrating all media into pieces, projects. Currently, I’m working to create multi-media art that incorporates glass, metals, ceramics, paint, and other natural elements in both two and three dimensional design.”
Dan Newman studied Art Education in Washington and California. He received his masters degree from San Francisco State University. He has been an Art educator in Alaska, North Carolina, and Utah. Dan has received several awards and honoraria. His next exhibit will be in July 2018 at Ocean Shores Gallery.

Lacey Wilson – Body Jewelry

Lacey Wilson

I had always grown up around art in all forms but it was never something that grabbed my attention. I spent most of my years riding horses and being a kid. After growing up into adulthood, having my daughter and giving up horses I really was struggling to find another hobby and interest.
I never imagined when my mother asked me to take a jewelry making class with her that I would actually find myself loving it. The moment I took that class my mind went wild with ideas. I started making necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, until my mom came to me with the idea of body jewelry. I thought it was crazy and that I had no idea how to make anything like that. My mother has always seen my potential and capabilities and urged me to at least look into it and give it a shot. One evening, I stayed up all night and made my first 2 pieces.
I thoroughly enjoy making body jewelry. It’s a way for me to be able to let go of the rest of the world. I will even find myself waking up at night with ideas. I plan on expanding my knowledge and skills by trying new things such as leg and arm jewelry, as well as chain/scale maille. I would love to see people of all ages wearing my designs and to bring a new meaning to body jewelry.
