Hirdie Girdie announces guest artist
The Hirdie Girdie Gallery will feature Paul David Adamick as its January Guest Artist, with an opening reception on Jan. 9 from 5 to 8 p.m. at 2490 Library Way, Sanibel. He will exhibit canvas wall art and sculpture. Adamick was an elementary school art teacher for 41 years, and now in retirement is living his dream of creating art. He is active at the Cape Coral Arts Studio, where he teaches art to adults and children, and also takes classes in fused glass and raku fired clay. He is also active with the Southwest Florida Fine Craft Guild. Adamick often combines the two mediums in his sculptures. On canvas, his primary medium was airbrush, but then he discovered bent wire art, which ties in with his love of drawing. Adamick “draws” with wire by shaping it on an airbrushed canvas, combining it with sculpture, or using it as a singular medium. His creations are brightly colored and playful, with simple motifs, and his art can be described as fun and whimsical. For more information, call 239-395-0027 or visit www.hirdiegirdiegallery.com.
