Henry Dupere makes outdoor critters with personality.  His cats are especially engaging with their piercing eyes, and charming antics.  Henry’s love of metalworking started in his high school shop class and hasn’t diminished since.  Henry sculpted metal as a hobby, while working as an aircraft welder.  After 18 years, he decided it was time to pursue an artistic career full time.  Today Henry spends his days letting his imagination and sense of humor drive his career.

“Reflections”

Textile artist, Susan Levi-Goerlich, paints with needle and thread.  She starts with 100% silk fabric and hand dyes it, using both traditional and modern techniques.  Susan then embroiders the piece, layering thousands of stitches to create depth, texture, and a myriad of colors.  The result is an impressionist “painting”.  Her work is inspired by local gardens and parks, in addition to favorite botanical gardens in Germany.

We just added artist Jerry Krider to our “Featured Artist” page on creationsgallery.com.  Jerry creates wall hangings and table top pieces in a bas-relief style.  All of the color in his work is the result of the variety of hardwoods used.  Their is no paint or pigment involved, just the wood’s natural coloration.  His subjects include cats, dogs, landscapes, and nativity scenes.

New Arrival - David Roy’s kinetic sculpture “Radiance”.  “Radiance” is a limited edition piece by Roy, measuring 34″ x 26″.  It runs for 15 hours by winding the lower wheel, creating a kaleidoscope of shifting patterns.  The two wheels are off balance, so that they accelerate and decelerate with each rotation.  This sculpture, like all of his work, is mesmerizing.

     Local potter, Carole Fox, is a recent addition to the gallery.  I think her work is just exquisite.  Pictured is one of her horsehair vessels.  She applies actual horse hair to the piece after it’s been fired, and the hair burns off leaving a line of carbon residue.  They’re very cool and I think they make a great gift, especially if you are not sure of the person’s taste.  I’ve found that many people like her pieces and the prices are so reasonable ($20 - $95).  We are having a show for her this fall!
