During the month of October, our 3D featured artist is potter Marlene Jones. Marlene began creating pottery in the 60's, and has studied under master potters in Italy and the United States. Her main interest is creating horsehair pottery in a style similar to that of the Plains Indians, but she is also skilled in Raku pottery, and creates functional and decorative pieces in both styles.

Our featured 2D artist for October is water media artist Thelma Daida. Thelma has lived in tropical areas most of her life, and this is reflected in her vividly colored paintings. She experiments with layering various types of water media in a painting to create depth and mystery. Thelma enjoys creating both semi-abstract and non-objective pieces which she finds rewarding and challenging. Click here to see the artist's work.
Congratulations to Thelma Daida and Jim Beech, who had paintings accepted into the 47th Annual Exhibition of the Florida Watercolor Society. The show is being held from September 7th to October 26th at Art Center Manatee in Bradenton, FL.
