Little Bits and Pieces
Jewelry Designs by Lois Ann Mittleman

Opening on April 1st,  the jewelry designs of Lois Mittleman will fill the front exhibit room of the Fifth Avenue Gallery. Many of you are familiar with Lois’s jewelry and may even own some of her designs. On April 1 you will be able to see the wide variety of pieces Lois creates.

You will see new and unusual stones: Black Tourmaline, Script Stone, Amethyst Padre Paraiso, Argonite, Pink Sapphires, Prehnite with Epidote, and Ethiopian Fluorite. You will see new and current gemstone cuts: collar-style plates and natural rough-cut Rubies, Apatite, and Fluorite. And of course, lots of the regular stuff will be in the show: Pearls, Rubies, Emeralds and Sapphires, Tanzanite and Tourmalines, Jasper, American Turquoise from the Sleeping Beauty and Kingman mines, Quartz, and even a few Black Diamonds.
Gemstones inspire Lois, and they will inspire you, too. Lois’s designs are based on the beauty, color, and shape of the stones, and that theme is evident in all her work. When Lois begins a new piece of jewelry, the gemstones rule.

Good Enough To Eat, Solo Exhibition by Frank Spino

Makin'_OJ-2 (769x1024)

Frank Spino is our award winning guest artist for March, with his solo exhibition entitled, “Good Enough to Eat”. “This show focuses on my fascination with painting citrus”,  Spino says.”Color excites me. Realism and rich, saturated color are what my art is all about.  I love the vibrant color and challenging textures: thick, dimpled rinds; thin, transparent slices, freshly cut and glistening wet with juice. We think you will agree… his painting look  ­– “Good Enough to Eat” .

In 1971, Mr. Spino received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ohio University, but said his “real” education came from the famous painter Henry Hensche, who he studied under at the Cape School of Arts in Cape Cod, Mass.”My understanding of color came from him,” he said. “We painted outdoors every day, sunny or overcast.”

Frank will be participating in our Second Saturday event on the 15th of March when he will be talking about his paintings and watercolor.
