Ann Monroe Street Gallery Features Original Artwork
From Three Local Artists
Original acrylics and pastels of local artists, Lorraine Potocki and Candy Schultheis and ceramic works of art by Roxie Spell will be on exhibit at Ann’s Monroe Street Gallery in Dunedin through the end of December.
Lorraine’s work will be one of the three local artist work on display at the Monroe Street Gallery. Her work includes pastel and acrylic that reflects styles ranging from realism to impressionism to abstract expressionism. She has won many awards for her work and has exhibited throughout Florida including solos shows in Tampa, Lakeland, and Seminole. Lorraine is on the faculty of the Dunedin Fine Art Center and also teaches workshops throughout Florida.
Candy works in acrylic, pastel, oil, and graphite. Her styles range from intuitive painting, to abstract and non-objective, and realism. Winner of many awards, she has exhibited her work throughout Rhode Island and Florida, including many solos shows. She is on the faculty of the Dunedin Fine Art Center and also teaches workshops throughout Florida. (Her work is featured above and at the Monroe Street Gallery).
Roxie studied clay art at LSU in the 1970’s and returned to the medium in 2006. Using leaves as templates, she has created her Nature’s Clay Art to reflect nature in art and art in nature. On the bottom of each piece the type of leaf is identified as well as where it is from. She has clients send or bring her leaves from many different states as well. Her work (functional as well as sculptural) has sold at art shows, shops and galleries and has won many awards.
