Here are a few artists you will be able to meet at the show this weekend:

Alina Eydel : Acrylic

First, we would like to introduce to you Alina Eydel. Rather than Alina using traditional mosaics, she gives her figurative, acrylic-on-canvas paintings a modern and unique twist, incorporating precious and semi-precious materials, which already imply treasure in themselves, and gluing and varnishing glass beads, Swarovsky crystals, fresh-water pearls, corals & turquoise. The result is spectacular. Each paintings shimmers like a sea of gem stones. You can see more of her work HERE.

Vicky Lilavois : Jewelry

Next, we would like to introduce to you Vicky Lilavois. Vicky enjoys creating exciting visual effects in her jewelry. She uses polymer clay because there are many ways it can be blended and manipulated. Polymer clay is not really a clay. It is a polymer compound of fine particles of polyvinyl chloride suspended in a plasticizer. You can learn more about this artist HERE.

Gregory Ricciardiello : Pottery

The final artist we would like to share with you today is Gregory Ricciardiello. Gregory hand-makes each piece of pottery. The work is either thrown on a potters wheel or hand constructed out of slabs and coils. As you can see – Gregory’s hard work pays off! His work is beautiful! You can see more of his collections HERE.

Don’t miss you chance to meet the artists listed above along with 100 other artists from around the United States!
