ArtVoiceWV: Peter Wood

Peter Wood took an artisitc welding class which set him on a journey to turn, bend and shape metal into stunning artistic sculptures. Wood doesn’t begin with a design in mind. He just works with the metal and follows it as its personlity unfolds in his workshop. He knows instinctively when the sculpture is done, and he sits down to find a name for it. Then he says, “When the image resonates with me, it is complete and I leave the sculpture to the elements to rust.” Learn more about Peter Wood at http://www.rustymetal.com. You can also find his work at the Ice House Artists’ Co-op in Berkeley Springs (http://icehousecoop.com).

Music is by Ayden Blackbird. You can find more at http://www.premiumbeat.com.

Susan Carney

Susan Carney is the Artist in Residence at Shepherd University. Susan is a painter and printmaker and works with monotype, a printmaking process in which only one print is created. Because she works with stencils, she often produces a series of similar prints yet each print is unique. Susan says she likes to experiment with texture using canvas, burlap or plastic. “I love the serendipity and unpredictability that results.”

A fascination with change informs Carney’s work. Watercolor, spray paint, acrylic paint, varnish and collage combine on wood, canvas and paper with a vocabulary of images such as birds, insects, knots, weaving, and fragments of the human body. Learn more about Susan at www.susancarney.com

ArtVoiceWV: Neil Super

Several years ago Neil Super left his job to become a full-time home dad. As his children got older, he grew restless, which led to various creative pursuits that included tapping Sugar Maples and making pure maple syrup for sale at local farm markets. At some point he began to pursue his love of beautiful wood by making carvings from fallen maple branches, and ultimately purchased his first wood lathe. That was roughly eight years ago. Today, examples of Neil’s turnings can be found in local craft and art galleries, juried art exhibits, and the May, 2014, issue of Southern Living Magazine, among other places. A member of the Artist’s Co-ops of West Virginia’s Berkeley and Morgan Counties, Neil is currrently producing turnings from wood taken from places of local and regional historical significance. He operates under the banner “Two Rivers Turnings” and lives and works in Historic Shepherdstown.

ArtVoiceWV: LEA

A couple of weeks ago, I read in our local paper that a singer/song writer named Lea was performing at The New Earth Granary here in Berkeley Springs. Based on the article, I thought she would be a good candidate for our ArtVoiceWV series. I was familiar with the Granary but hadn’t been there. So I contacted Lea and she was open to the idea of being the next artist to be featured. Lea has a beautiful voice and her songs are filled with imagery and passion. You can learn more about Lea at her website: http://www.thisisLEA.com.

ArtVoice: Amingo Glass

Amingo Glass is a studio for the creation of glass art with a focus on stained glass. It was founded more than 30 years ago by Edward and Henry Palczewski. Their artistic style lies in creating stained glass windows and mirrors using the copper foil method technique as exemplified my Tiffany lampshades. The styles have changed over the years with many variations, but the work is currently centered in the Art Deco Period with some emphasis in the Victorian Period. Other interest includes work with fused and slumped glass making items as bowls, chargers, and jewelry. Learn more at http://amingoglass.com.

ArtVoice: Jan Heath

Jan has been making prints for over 30 years. Her printmaking techniques have evolved over the years by experimentation and innovation. All of her prints are hand pulled, signed and numbered.
In 1979,drawn by the natural beauty and friendly quality of the Berkeley Springs area, Jan left the Washington, DC area with her husband, painter Jonathan Heath, and their son, Damian, to build their home and studios. Working and living in rural Morgan County provides a continuing source of inspiration for Jan’s prints. In 1992, Jan and Jonathan opened the Heath Studio Gallery in Berkeley Springs. http://jheath.com
