Hirdie Girdie spotlighting three artists for month
Hirdie Girdie Gallery has been highlighting three member artists in March.
Kay Stammers fulfills her artistic passion by transforming a piece of wood into a three-dimensional copy of a living bird. She works predominately with Tupelo wood, Manzanita, grapevine and driftwood, and after the carving is completed, she applies acrylic paint for realistic color. To hone her skills, Stammers continues to observe local birds, study with master woodcarvers and often travels to see birds of other countries.
Anne Tuttle is a realist artist who prefers to work primarily in dry mediums, including colored pencil, graphite, charcoal,and silverpoint. Her subject matter is varied, but she has an interest in maritime art and is inspired by the seashells, plants, birds and sea life of Sanibel. Other favorite subjects include boats and seascapes. Tuttle strives to create a minimalist uncluttered look to her artwork, which is often described as peaceful and calming.
Peter Zell’s paintings have been consistent award winners in Southwest Florida art exhibitions. His unique approach to the subject, as well as his bold and interpretive use of color, are hallmarks of his work. The result is a painting which, while basically realistic, offers an uncommon perspective into his mind’s eye. Zell works primarily en plein air, creating mostly landscapes and seascapes of local, national and international locales.
