Artists & Makers Studios 1 on Parklawn hosts “Chimerical” Lescault’s biomorphic sculptures evoke beings that exist only in her mind’s eye. Her sculptures combine elements from all forms and stages of life, active and inert, living and dead, combining attributes and impressions into new visions. “Robert Yi: Selected Works” presents the early works of Robert Yi juxtaposed by current paintings that explore masks, patterns, and symbolism in transition. “Inspired by Frida” curated by David Amoroso features his award-winning works and those of juried artists, along with a Frida-themed market. Theremin music throughout the evening by Arthur Harrison in the artist hall as well as resident artists’ open studios will add to the experience.

From CultureType.com:

“AS A YOUNG GIRL, Jamea Richmond-Edwards got lost in the pages of Ebony magazine. She was particularly drawn to the runway images from the Ebony Fashion Fair show. Through the otherworldly photographs of stunning black models styled in wildly imaginative ensembles, she discovered haute couture and envisioned herself as a fashion designer. Years later, she chose visual art over fashion design, but never gave up on her desire to explore the artifice of dressing.

Gloria Miotto

Originally from Brazil, rediscovering my passion for painting has been a journey back to my roots. As an artist, I overcome the challenging hardships in this world by maintaining a positive spirit. I enjoy understanding how human beings interact, integrate and exist as a part of the natural environment. These dynamic movements are transported into my paintings in the themes I choose, and in the combinations of colors I select, and using a unique technique I have developed, which give to the viewers the impact of my message. I like to be presented with challenges and use each experience to represent social themes in my surrounding and the world’s environment. My style is abstract expressionism. Art has always been a passion of mine and I continue to learn through my experiences and taking various classes at local colleges.
