Hirdie Girdie spotlights three artists for month
Hirdie Girdie Gallery is highlighting three member artists in February.
Anne Kittel has been exhibiting art and teaching watercolor in the Fort Myers and Sanibel for years. Her paintings have won awards in area exhibitions. Kittel has a unique approach to creating her art, and her work ranges from realistic and semi-abstract, to fully abstract. She is known for her “Starry Sky” series of swirling nighttime skies above local landmarks. Kittel’s paintings show strong composition and design and bold use of color.
Jeanne Risher creates a variety of fused glass objects, including plates and bowls, wall-hung pieces, window panels and tabletop decorative panels on stands. She is inspired by nature, especially aquatic and marine life. Risher’s style ranges from elegant and classical, to bold and brash, even whimsical. She is not influenced by trends, but strives to produce unique artwork that reflects her interpretation of the subject instead of producing and manufacturing pieces along specific lines.
Denny Souers has been involved with professional photography for over 50 years. He is active as a volunteer with the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, which provides opportunities to photograph native birds and animals. His other favorite subjects are the sunsets and beaches of Sanibel and Captiva. He is a member of area photo clubs, and he enjoys taking photo workshops and teaching photography subjects at BIG ARTS. His photos have been included in publications, calendars and websites.
