We encourage you to stop by in November to check out their work in person.

 

Oluf Nielsen

OLUF NIELSEN 1  OLUF NIELSEN 4  OLUF NIELSEN 3 

Oluf would be bored if always painting in one style or the same painting over and over like many artists do. When asked, why he has so many styles he may state “Because… I’m not a one trick pony!” Since he keeps his art cerebral, creative and fun, expect his work to always be moving forward with ground breaking creative ideas such as this years “Flow Paintings.” You could miss out if you like a painting of a certain style and wait too long to buy. Oluf changes with the times, and keeps each painting unique.

To see more of Oluf's work, please visit him in booth 153.

Dale Talley

Dale Talley 1  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  ????????????????????   

I really enjoyed searching, finding and working with found materials. Sometimes the design was dictated by the objects I discovered. This in turn made my work truly “one of a kind.” Once those materials were gone, the original work could never be duplicated. As I continued to grow in my design and craftsmanship, my work has evolved into what you see today.

In 1988 Mayauel started his own glass business making lampwork paperweights in his home. Over the years he has added vases, torchwork paperweights, light sculptures, perfume bottles, and pendants to his line. His pieces reflect his love of the ocean and nature with their coral reef and floral designs.

Yevette Lubbers

Yevette Lubbers 1  Yevette Lubbers 4    Yevette Lubbers 3 

My inspiration comes from places I have fallen in love with from all over the world. Each piece of glass art I create is a reflection of where I long to be in a world of growing of uncertainty it is important to me to provide the client a momentary escape from reality.
