|New work in progress by Lisa Noviasky!|
As artists it is not in our nature to stay with the comfortable. We strive to feel the fire of new creative energy. The question “I wonder what would happen if _ _ _ _” occurs to us constantly and then we are off…… trying new glazes or a new shaped vessel. We work with alternative metals, stones and glass to construct jewelry that is different from last week’s “A-Ha” moment. Different grained woods and fabric choices give life to functional pieces. Some are moving from one medium to another, one shape or size while exploring the limits of painting. This all makes for adventurous days in the studio. As they say “The joy is in the journey”.
The best part is that we offer all of this to you, our customers and patrons. Every time you come in to Gallery 54 expect something new, something different. Expect change.
