Liv & Lov by Dora Szekely designs     StudioDDB Stained Glass Art

Dora Szekely of Liv & Lov creates pieces of wearable art jewelry, designing each piece completely by hand! As a Global Studies major in college focusing on Fair Trade and having worked with FT organizations, Dora makes great efforts to use only recycled silver. She switched to recycled with the dream of one day being a part of creating a Fair Trade Silver, something with transparency for artisans that can’t afford to own a mine.

Dora even had the opportunity to visit mines in southern Africa and learn how it has developed the country and affects the people, further strengthening her resolve. She has also interned and worked as a researcher for the No Dirty Gold campaign and hopes to work on Fair Trade gold in Colombia before going to Peru to research silver mining. The profits she makes from her jewelry not only go back into her art but towards these goals!

The manner in which I create is inspired by people and the earth, the designs are inspired by nature, geometric forms, and connections. The way opposing geometric forms connect and the connections everything living has to each other, unknown, random, and destined.

Follow your dreams

Liv life to the fullest

Be compassionate

Love you, others and the Earth

& You will not only find happiness

But will change the World!

Check out Liv & Lov by Dora Szekely designs and come out to the East Greenwich Art Festival on September 1st and 2nd at the New England Tech campus to see Dora’s beautiful artwork in person!

For Donna, her work in stained glass comes from her fascination with the play of light and shadow – a constant change of the piece of art at different times during the day (and during the four seasons) as the light changes the appearance of the image

Donna is inspired by the beauty of cathedral windows and greatly appreciates the amount of time and hard work that goes into creating such works of art. Donna works mainly in the Tiffany copper
foil technique and believes Tiffany’s works are breathtaking

While Donna has worked in illustration, painting, photography and more, she enjoys the challenges of cutting and soldering glass to create a piece of art. While she is able to produce a traditional stained glass piece, She finds that it’s always more fun to create something with a bit of whimsey

Visit Donna of StudioDDB Stained Glass Art online today and make sure to come out to the East Greenwich Art Festival to see works by Donna, Dora and all of your favorite local artists along with live entertainment, local eats, free kids activities and more!

And just around the corner…

Chinawear by Karen J     Hiroko Art

Karen, , owner of “Chinawear by Karen J”, handcrafts beautiful and unique jewelry and belt buckles from fun and fine china.  Each pierce is carefully planned, cut, ground and turned into beautiful pieces of jewelry from dinner plates!

               Karen pulls her inspiration from her love of fine china from England and collecting tea pots and tea cups for many years.
Custom orders are even available from your own dinner plates! – makes a great heirloom piece of jewelry from Grandmother or Mother’s old plate 🙂
Make sure to check out Karen at the East Greenwich Art Festival on September 1st and 2nd at the New England Tech Campus!
Hiroko Shikashio of Hiroko Art  uses color as the key element in her abstract watercolors and collages. She is moved by scenes and simple objects surrounding her and seeks to assimilate and transform her works into colorful imagery.
The backbone to her art life derives from the fact that her father was once a famous artist in Japan. His influence of loving what he does has driven Hiroko to make beautiful works of art.
While Hiroko began as a watercolorist, she soon began to expand her media, moving into acrylics, oil sticks and then to collage. She is extremely passionate about world traveling and naturally takes photos wherever she goes – this became serious media for expression in her recent years.
People ask me which media do you enjoy most, then I must say, I love all of it. I rotate expressing creativity in all media.
Visit Hiroko online today and make sure to come support her and your other local artists at the East Greenwich Art Festival coming up just next month! – You won’t want to miss out!
Big thanks to our fabulous sponsor!
And make sure you are keeping on your radar…
