Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will welcome Jupiter, Florida artist Joan Patterson during its next “Meet the Artists” event on Saturday, July 18th, 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. (3129 Beach Boulevard South in Gulfport).
Patterson’s jewelry and home accents have been offered at Domain for many years but this will be the first personal appearance by the artist.
Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre will be offered during the event as well as live jazz.
Scotland native Joan Patterson nourished her creative growth as a child with countless visits to the museums of Glasgow. In the early 1990s, following a vacation to Miami, she relocated to Jupiter, Florida where she still resides. After self-taught study and work in stained glass, she progressed into three-dimensional forms that have evolved into the jewelry and home accents that are now her signature pieces.
Her work primarily incorporates copper and glass, with inspirations from nature, Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles. Additionally, some of her pieces incorporate limpet shells which her sister collects from Scottish beaches and sends to her. Patterson’s jewelry includes bracelets, earrings, chokers and pendants. Her home accents include night lights, fan and lamp switch pulls, window decorations and tabletop clocks. She shows her work in numerous art shows throughout Florida.
