Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will feature “flame-chased metal” artist Kevin Webb during its next “Meet the Artists” event on Saturday, October 17th, 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. (3129 Beach Boulevard South in Gulfport). Webb’s metal “creatures” incorporate his own signature method of coloring and curing, resulting in bright, swirling hues. Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre will be offered during the event as well as live jazz.

Working out of his own 10th Avenue West Studios in the Bradenton Art Village, Webb crafts a metal menagerie of Florida wildlife, including fish, crabs, geckos and turtles. He developed his signature coloring process when a friend who worked with copper enameling was diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease and could no longer safely use a kiln. He attempted to develop a method of “cold enameling” for her, and though the experiment was unsuccessful, it resulted in the “flame-chased metal” process he has used on his art work ever since. With a torch, each piece is colored with a mix of polymer enamels and epoxy sealants, with a high gloss finish achieved from the curing process. The art works are weather-resistant and can be displayed indoors or outdoors. Webb uses recycled materials as much as possible, including roofing metals, wine bottles and fencing wire. Webb’s art work is available in galleries throughout the country. Domain Home Accessories & Gallery is the exclusive retailer of his work in the Tampa Bay area.

Watercolorist Shares Art & Openness About Parkinson’s

Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will welcome watercolor artist Ron Czerniec during its next “Meet the Artists” event on Saturday, September 19th, 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. (3129 Beach Boulevard South in Gulfport).

Czerniec relocated to St. Petersburg earlier this year and began offering his work at Domain very recently.  This will be his first appearance at the Gallery.  Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre will be offered during the event as well as live jazz.

While raising his family in Northern Virginia, Ron Czerniec pursued a successful career as a high-level financial officer with USA Today for 23 years.  He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2006, which necessitated his departure from the newspaper operation in 2008.

Since that time, he has passionately pursued his creative outlet of watercolor painting, in which he had only dabbled in previous years.  He has become a prolific watercolorist, including many depictions of Florida scenes he has captured since moving to St. Petersburg.

Czerniec has also passionately pursued outreach, education and advocacy for Parkinson’s for the past several years.  His forthcoming book, “A Life Interrupted –  Invaluable Lessons Learned in my Dance with Parkinson’s,” details his own journey with Parkinson’s and offers help and hope for others living with the same or other chronic, “life-interrupting” conditions.

Czerniec explains, “I call Parkinson’s ‘a perfect marriage; it never quits, is always there for you and increases its devotedness to you over time.’ Like a perfect marriage, there are good times, bad times, hope, sadness, happiness, emotional times and real learnings.”  Domain offers both original works and prints by Ron Czerniec.  The artist donates 10% of all proceeds from his art work to the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

Since March 2001, Domain Home Accessories has offered unique art, décor, lighting, jewelry, greeting cards, home goods and more, earning a reputation as one of Gulfport’s most respected retailers.  “& Gallery” was added in 2012 to the adjacent space and now showcases the work of over 40 local and regional artists.

It’s Gecko Season in Gulfport!

GECKO SEASON in Gulfport celebrates the end of summer each year honoring our favorite reptile!  Our town represents its quirky nature  with fun-filled events stretching from the beginning of August through Labor Day weekend.  A first annual “Gecko Artists Show” is now on display at the Catherine Hickman Theater.  The annual “Gecko Pub Crawl” was held earlier this month.  And we are still looking forward to the 7th Annual Gecko Ball on August 29th, and the 15th Annual GeckoFest on September 5th.

“Gecko Gras!” is the theme of this year’s festivities, with Mardi Gras-style costumes (intermixed with gecko costumes) and festivities being flaunted at each event.  A few tickets are still available for the Gecko Ball, known as Gulfport’s “Party of the Year”!  And GeckoFest, our largest and oldest street festival, is a FREE day-long, family-friendly celebration.  A portion of proceeds from all Gecko events are donated to local charities each year.

“Once Upon” expresses a Surrealist attitude.

John DeGiorgio creates images that present themselves to him both in actuality and in imagination.  He works in graphite, colored pencils, charcoals and other media, primarily on paper.  He has also worked in painting and murals.  In New York, he was fond of capturing quick candid portraits in the city’s subways.

His figure studies range from models to people on the street to friends.  Other works include faces and bodies and body parts amid surrealist landscapes. His guided “journeys” for people exploring art and creativity include one-night group “Paint Dates,” as well as more intensive multi-week self-portraiture projects called “Shedding the Mask.”  Domain offers both originals and prints by John DeGiorgio.

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.

Florida Woodcarver Appearing This Saturday

 

Sea turtles by Daniel "Abrahan" Flores

Sea turtles by Daniel “Abraham” Flores

Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will host a reception to feature Florida woodcarving artist Daniel “Abraham” Flores.  This installment of Domain’s monthly “Meet the Artists” events will take place on Saturday, June 20th, 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at 3129 Beach Boulevard South in Gulfport.

Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvre will be offered as well as live music by jazz saxophonist Henry Ashwood.

Daniel “Abraham” Flores is a Florida native who currently resides in Panama City Beach. His fascination and love for the outdoors, where he encounters sun, sand, fish, birds and other creatures inspire much of the subject matter for his art. The lore of the sea also inspires his works depicting whimsical mermaids.

Marine birds and wildlife are favored subjects of Daniel "Abraham" Florees

Most of his pieces are carved and sculpted on recycled wood salvaged from construction sites, lumber yards and mills. He also applies his signature carvings to vintage furniture. After being carved, the pieces are painted, and then thickly layered with protective lacquered finishes. His art works are often mistaken for polished ceramics due to their texture and sheen. Most wall-hung pieces are suitable for display in protected outdoor areas.

Flores offers his art work at numerous outdoor festivals and markets. Since his introduction to Domain visitors three years ago, he has developed a significant number of local collectors and has proven to be one of the most popular artists represented there.
