Naples Art Show - III

And, here is one last set of images from the Naples National Art show, a big juried show in Naples' Cambier Park, which concluded on Sunday.

 Nicholas Barnes is a second generation artist from the Appalachian Mountains of Southwest Virginia.  He collects local wood, creates a vase, bowl, urn or other form on a lathe, then decorates the form with thin layers, often wood wrapped in metal.  The big colorful form behind him looks like it was influenced by Gustav Klimt.  The decoration is from thin layers of colored pencils.

Dennis Goodman, a Naples wildlife photographer, exhibits at many of the good juried art shows.

Marisa S White does amazing work.  She begins by making very good photographic images, then modifies them in imaginative ways through complex editing.  For example, in this creation an insect is placed on the subject's hand and lily pads cover her body.

Mark Brown, from Pennsylvania, showed bird, alligator and other wildlife images that have a Southwest Florida connection.

I enjoyed seeing more from this art show. Love the wildlife photographs, especially Marisa S. White's collage.
