July 2013 Jozy Fine Art Newsletter

The Summer Season Begins!

June has been a particularly slow month on the Cape but in some ways a very productive one. Schools closed late due to the make-up snow days, and Cape summer residents and visitors are busy opening their houses and unpacking. Our Art in Nature Evening, however, was a success. Lou Clark, fine art photographer from St. Louis, attended and thoroughly enjoyed greeting all the interesting visitors. He had the opportunity to meet and discuss his processes with an ardent admirer of his work.

Local fine art photographer L. Robert Jasper was also in attendance. He had a lively discussion of printing techniques with a photographer who is a collector of Lynn Shaler’s etchings.

Another exciting incident is what all galleries hope for. A customer came in and told us that her husband had purchased earrings for her. She needed a graduation gift and told us, “I thought of you immediately.” My associate and I were thrilled that someone was so pleased with her jewelry from Jozy Fine Art that she thought of giving a gift from our Jayne Capps’ jewelry collection.

As usual, thanks to all who attended Art in Nature and to those who worked so hard to make this event a success. We’re certainly looking forward to our July 13th opening – Motif: Sensibilities featuring the oils, acrylics, collages, and mixed media of Massachusetts artist Iva Liebert. Her news series “Out of the Bowl” will be prominently displayed. Look for some examples of Liebert’s series on our web site and Facebook.

Liebert will be our guest at a wine and cheese reception from 5 to 7PM on Saturday the 13th. Other attendees will have the opportunity to talk with her and discuss the inspiration for her new series and other work. Her work will continue to be shown in the gallery through August 9th.

This year Jozy Fine Art will be open daily through December from 11am to 5pm (closed Tuesdays)…   Jozy

NOW SHOWING:

“Art in Nature”

Photographers Lou Clark and L. Robert Jasper show their skills at capturing the grandeur of nature with photographs such as Storm on Coast Guard Beach by Clark and Crimson Sunset by Jasper. The beauty of nature, of course, is that the photographer can turn one-hundred eighty degrees from an expansive view to capture seagrass tracing patterns in the sand such as Sand Scrit by Clark. Jasper’s Freedom One taken from the Queen Mary Two in Norway speaks for itself.

Art takes another form in the whimsical Bearscapes by Iva Liebert who will also be attending the Art in Nature Opening. Liebert has captured the giddiness of playing in autumn leaves in the Bearscape: October Bliss.  Then she gets serious showing the radiance of autumn in the moving October.

We’re showing one of Lynn Shaler’s latest works Le Ruisseau that depicts a Wellfleet cottage nestled among the grasses growing beside a brook. This etching is a fine example of Shaler’s detailed work. She brings nature inside with Un Jour d’Ete showing an alluring bouquet of sunflowers by an open window.

Jayne Capps has some fascinating new pieces crafted with natural stone, coral, and the very interesting African Trade Beads and Lampwork Beads. Both types of beads have histories worth knowing. African Trade Beads were made throughout Europe, but mainly in Venice, from the 16th through the 20th centuries.They made their way to Africa with traders in, among other things, slaves – thus, the other name Slave Beads. Lampwork Beads also claim an Italian heritage. They were formed as long ago as the fifth century, but found their home in the 14th in Murano. Early bead makers melted glass with an oil lamp to form the beads with tools or hand movements. Contemporary artists use propane, butane and other gases. You can read the entire history of both types of beads on Wikipedia.

OUR NEXT SHOW: “Motif: Sensibilities” begins July 13th

I am very excited about Motif: Sensibilities because I believe it is an opportunity to see the work of some exciting new artists and to get a sense of what they feel while they’re working.

Iva Liebert will attend the opening event and would be honored to discuss her work with visitors. Her newest work from the series “Out of the Bowl” will be featured, and we will continue to show the festive little bears from her Bearscape series.

L. Robert Jasper, fine art photographer, will also attend. Jasper has participated in several classes conducted by renowned photographers, and we will be showing many pieces from those workshops.

We continue to show photographic work of fine art photographer Lou Clark and handcrafted jewelry from Jayne Capps. Lynn Shaler’s work is also well represented. Lynn will visit the gallery in August and conduct a seminar on her etching process. Watch our site for details.

Enjoy beautiful Cape Cod, the Art and other events…

About the Gallery

About the Gallery

I am a long time collector of art from both new artists and the well known. My vision for Jozy Fine Art is a gallery that will present work from artists long collected while providing a venue for new talent struggling for attention. I like themes, so in our first year I’ll use some of my favorites to feature oils and acrylics, aquatint etching, fine art photography, and handcrafted jewelry. The gallery space is open and comfortable – meant to welcome all visitors… Jozy
