Hirdie Girdie to highlight work of Risher, Tuttle

By Staff | Mar 20, 2018

Jeanne Risher

The Hirdie Girdie Art Gallery on Sanibel is featuring the work of Jeanne Risher and Anne Tuttle.

Risher, of Sanibel, began working in stained glass in 1998, but her passion turned to fused glass in 2002. She loves the unpredictable outcome of the fusing process and her designs range from elegant and classical, to brash and whimsical. Her inspiration comes from nature, especially marine life, and her varied works include an array of tropical subjects.

Tuttle has been working in the medium of colored pencil since the 1990s. It allows her to combine her love of drawing and detail with color. She appreciates the simplicity and versatility of colored pencils and has enjoyed its growth as an accepted medium in shows and galleries. Tuttle has a special interest

in maritime art, and she has found much inspiration in Florida’s coastlines.

The Hirdie Girdie Art Gallery is at 2490 Library Way, Sanibel. The multi-member co-op offers paintings, photography, beaded sculptures, wood carvings, basketry, glass, fiber, ceramic, colored pencil works and jewelry. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
