First Friday Artwalk November - Part two!

We have so much to show you this Friday, we had to split this blog post into two! We know you've been anticipating this, so wait no more! 

Amiro Art & Found will be featuring a book signing by artist and writer, TeZa Lord.  

TeZa Lord has spent a lifetime in the arts as a painter and illustrator, and has pursued the inter-connectedness of a meditation and hatha yoga practice. Sharing her gift with others, led her to teach yoga to at-risk teens in Juvenile detention in Lakeland, FL.  We are delighted to have her with us to launch her art book, 'We Are ONE'.

We Are ONE is an inner journey depicted through images and words. Vibrant art illuminates the universal feeling of Oneness. This vivid coffee-table book depicts a state of being that many in today's world aspire to: compassion for all in existence.  Meet TeZa and begin your
meditation toward the infinite with We Are ONE as your guide.

Our friends from Carrera Wine Cellars on San Marco Ave, will also be on hand at Amiro Art & Found with a sampling of fine wines for the evening.

At Amiro Art + Design, we will be featuring the photography of Karin Connolly

 "I begin by capturing photographs that are unique and interesting to me. Some are very soft and subtle, while others are mystical and playful. I tend to gravitate toward images where only certain elements are in focus. When shooting in nature, I am constantly searching for that perfect moment where all the elements of light and landscape come together to form a single wonderful moment"

Karin's photographs seem to bring an ethereal presence to reality, and absorb the viewer into the scene.  Each shot reflecting something beyond our experience, while bringing a sense of comfort and solace.

Marcia Myrick Siany is bringing her Wishes, Hopes and Dreams collection to Amiro Art + Design.  Incorporating jewelry, painting and sculpture, Marcia's talents provide one of our most eclectic displays of art to date.   She tells us about the inspiration behind this collection in her blog:

"While we’re embroiled in our currently bustling lives, many of us carry along with us a pocket full of wishes, hopes and dreams for our potential future.  If we work hard and stars align some of these aspirations may actually even come to fruition.  Some may get a little singed on the edges.  Many rest in the flame so long they merely turn to cinder, rather than turning into the thing we want most for them to become.
This collection is about the journey that our hopes take with us.  Its’ about the desires we actually realize.  It’s about the delicate fringes of the wishes that get a little crispy.  And it’s about the hearts of the dreams that simply turn to ash."

The photography of Ginny Bullard is on display as part of the November exhibit at Amiro Art & Design .  A series of images focusing on  texture, color and line titled "Window", convey Bullard's interest in the amorphous solid, better known as glass.

Ginny grew up in Coastal Maine and graduated with a degree in English Literature from Bethany College in the rolling hills of W.VA. After learning to make fine jewelry in Cape May NJ. she moved to Florida and opened several retail stores and galleries in both St. Augustine and Charleston, SC.
