Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra to Feature Four Renowned Artists

Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra to feature four renowned artists in a new group show, Nov. 18

 

 Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra will exhibit the new artwork of four renowned artists during the group show, Ebb and Flow. The painters and mixed media artists are to be featured at the opening on Friday, November 18  from 5 pm until 8 pm at Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra, 240 A1A North, Ste. 13 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. The public show remains on display through December. For more information, contact the gallery at 904.273.6065. Visit the website atwww.stellersgallery.com.

 

John Folsom, Jennifer J. L. Jones, Toni John and Wendy McArthur will exhibit new works with a focus on the natural. The artists are all highly collected and exhibited. Each painter complements each other’s talent with a unique visual experience.

 

John Folsom’s landscapes communicate his unique interpretations with mixed media on panels.  His photographic images are designed as a grid and pieced onto each panel.  Folsom completes the artwork with oils on the surface and seals each piece with a wax medium.

 

Jennifer J. L. Jones explores an abstract interpretation of energy and beauty with her artistic meditations on moments of change.  Her brilliantly colored, yet subtle luminous finishes are glazed and richly layered as introspective works which are inspired by nature.

 

Toni John features her abstract paintings in a large format and delves into brilliant colors with an extensive use of silver and gold leaf powder. Her work is influenced by Byzantine and Near Eastern art. Her work reflects a complexity of beauty and a celebration of earthly and celestial subjects.

 

Wendy McArthur exhibits art that features rich layers of paint and glaze depicting the tranquility of lone boats and bicycles. Her shapes and blocks of color are large on the canvas with refined sketching and brushwork along with radiant hues from her personally crafted ground pigments.

 

Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra is open from Monday through Friday from 11 am until 6 pm and Saturday from 11 am until4 pm. Phone number is 904.273.6065.
