It's been a hot summer, and we're waiting for the cooler breezes and longer nights. Check out what we have for you as we welcome September at Amiro Galleries.
We have new fabric art from Amy Hemphill Dove. Her scarves are patterned by organic dyes within the leaves and foliage. Amy says:
"My botanical printed silks are created by layering prepared natural silk with the leaves, flowers and buds of various local plants. The silk and plant material are bundled together, tightly bound and steamed. This process creates a permanent transfer of pigment from the leaves to the silk. I then take this process a step further by adding permanent professional grade protein dyes to the background adding extraordinary color and pattern to the botanical prints."
Light and ethereal, the scarves are the perfect thing for autumn strolls through the old city. Available in a number of different colors and patterns, from bold and bright to subtle and subdued, there is one waiting just for you.
RoAnn Elias is a Florida contemporary painter of acrylic and mixed media pieces. Her interest in art began as a young child when she fell in love with the colorful tissue paper art of a favorite children’s book. The layering of transparent color and the use of different textures are what still inspire her to bring these elements to her often realistic works of art. RoAnn studied art and design at Santa Monica College in California and Georgia State. She also had the opportunity to study with nationally known figurative sculptors in the Atlanta area and in Loveland, Colorado.
