Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will host its final “Meet the Artists” event of 2014 with a showcase of work by two favorite Gulfport artists: jewelry designer Doug D’souza and painter/photographer Cheryll Grogan.

Both artists offer works that are ideal for holiday gift-giving.

The event will take place at “& Gallery” (3129 Beach Blvd. South in Gulfport) on Saturday, December 20th from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.  Both artists will be present to discuss their work with guests.  Live jazz and holiday music, complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre will be offered.

Doug D’souza was born in India and came to the U.S. at the age of 18.  He moved to Florida in 1994, and then located to Gulfport permanently seven years ago.  He is a self-taught metal smith, working primarily in artisan jewelry since 1998.  D’souza describes his inspirations as industrial design and architecture, along with culture, spiritual symbolism and the “natural beauty of the organic.”  His previous creations included small and large sculptures and room dividers, incorporating etched and carved glass.  A back injury during an art installation forced him to change the type and size of his work, resulting in his focus on wearable art.

Working from his home studio in Gulfport, he incorporates metals including silver, gold, copper and bronze as well as more “modern” materials such as metal clay, aluminum and Lucite.  New work, including a new line of mixed metal cuff bracelets, as well as pendants, personalized and symbol jewelry, wedding bands, cuff links and earrings are among his creations that will be displayed and offered for sale during the event.  D’souza’s work has been featured and sold at Domain for many years.

Cheryll Grogan has been a Gulfport resident for 20 years.  Before, during and after stints in the U.S. Army and Postal Service, she created and studied art, earning her BFA with a concentration in photography.  While still employed at the post office, she continued to create and show her art work on a freelance basis, including murals and photos.  Grogan felt confident enough in her abilities to “jump ship” and become a self-employed artist over ten years ago.

She travels widely, displaying and selling art work at shows throughout the country.  Locally, she has shown her work at many Gulfport festivals and events, as well as St. Petersburg’s Mainsail Art Festival.  She has been a featured artist at the Dunedin Art Harvest and Palm Harbor Art Festival.  Her work featured at Domain includes original paintings and photographs, as well as affordable giclees on canvas.

Favored subjects include buildings and scenes from Gulfport, Key West and other Florida locations, as well as vintage “cool” cars and trucks.  She continues to create murals and other work on commission, including popular “house portraits.”

Gulfport native Eric Folsom returned to his home town in 1975 after a period of self-education, followed by an apprenticeship in which he honed his creative skills in brazing and fabricating bronze and copper.  He has exhibited his work throughout the East Coast.  His work includes both decorative and functional pieces, including home décor, serve ware and boxes, which have been displayed and sold at Domain for many years.  Most recently, his expanding line of distinctive jewelry has become a best seller.

Daniel “Abraham” Flores is a Florida native with a fascination for the outdoors, where his encounters with sun, sand, fish, birds and other animals inspire much of the subject matter for his art.  The lore of the sea also inspires works depicting whimsical mermaids.  Most of his pieces are carved and sculpted on recycled wood, painted, and then thickly layered with protective lacquered finishes.  His art works are often mistaken for polished ceramics due to their texture and sheen.  In the last year he has also begun to offer furniture pieces, especially tables with tops displaying his signature hand-carved and lacquered look.  Since his introduction to Domain visitors two years ago, he has developed a significant number of local collectors.
