Garden of fountains

D

amien Jones, a Bay Area artist, has applied his knowledge and background from engineering into some monumental ceramic pieces, 3-D water fountain sculptures and wall pieces. These magnificent handbuilt ceramic forms with their harmonious glazes and textured patterns evokes a peaceful serenity. Listen to the soothing sound and view the glistening water as it gently cascades over each piece with its tranquil and welcomed presence. Be sure to take a stroll through this garden of fountains while admiring each uniquely handcrafted work of art. The fountains and basins are high-fired ceramic which will last for many years to come.

Non-Profit Beneficiaries

Enjoy this Zen-like garden of fountains when visiting the Sculpture Plaza, corner of Cowper and University, at the Palo Alto Festival of the Arts. Visit damienjonesart.com for more viewing.

10 X Palo Alto Festival of the Arts X 2015

A family legacy

dam Stone and Rachel Shultz, brother and sister, will be showing their creative talents at the Palo Alto Festival of the Arts. The son and daughter of professional painters and sculptors born and raised in the Los Angeles area still reside there today. They each cultivated their own artist abilities through the years with a distinctive style of painting.


Rachel’s style involves reverse painting on plexiglass with many framed in recycled wood windows, an integral part of each piece. Her subject matter ranges from landscape, nature, human figure, and animals. When viewing the work and having light hit the surface it exudes vivid and luminous color seen from the opposite side from which it was created.

CELEBRATING 45 YEARS!

“Plexiglass can be very challenging and somewhat unforgiving. With reverse painting on plexiglass the first strokes are usually the final ones. This promotes spontaneity, an energetic loose brushstroke and an expressiveness that allows the viewer a more direct emotional experience with the painting,” says Shultz. Adam, a contemporary artist, has honed in on the human figure in motion and imagination; primarily painting in acrylics on a large-scale format. In addition, his love for animals has allowed him to redirect his focus from humans to animals as seen in his latest works that are whimsical and surreal. “These mystical creatures often posses human-like characteristics that serve as a whimsical reflection and satirical commentary on the adventurous plight of the human condition. With the goal to place the subjects in both familiar and dream like realties where their actions and expressions take us on a visceral trip deep into our mind’s eye,” says Stone. It’s about learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future. The passion of these siblings through family ties carries on through their many individual artistic accomplishments and have become sought after by many art collectors. For more information on each artist please view: www.rachelshultz.com and www.adamstone.com.

Watching art come to life is considered a performance art and has an immediacy that gives every piece a uniqueness that can never be truly duplicated. This temporary live-art performance is traced back to the 16th century in Italy where artists created chalk paintings on the pavement. Using soft pastel chalks, artists will transform Tasso into fabulous works of art using asphalt as their canvas. Squares range in size from 4ft. x 6ft. to 12ft. x12ft.

Armenian Art Academy in Yerevan, Armenia. He now lives in the Los Angeles area. His work begins with clay where he focuses on bringing his ideas and design to fruition allowing his imagination, creativity, and sense of humor to take shape. The bronze is poured into handcrafted molds. Some sculptures are smooth or left rough to the touch for a more tactile feeling. His own patina is then applied to achieve very unique colors.

A perfect harmony

rene Estrin, a ceramic artist, originally from New Jersey now calls Santa Barbara home. Through the years and many art interests her inspiration is often triggered during treks along the beach or atop a hill. “My designs came from nature as I always collected things to use in my art whether it was stained glass using found objects along the road on my bike trips or my collages that also incorporated the journey with nature,” says Estrin. A style uniquely created by Estrin evolves with each piece. A handful of clay is manipulated into a flat or curved shape. Vessels begin with coiling layers of various lengths to achieve a bowl, birdhouse, or pitcher. Her bowls have an added dimension which allows one of the edges to contain food, a spoon or chopsticks, and yet another side for a drinking spout or for serving. “Woven clay is like the journey through life with creative change,” is the signature on her pots and her life, says Estrin. Visit her website at www.ireneestrin.com to view some of her latest work.

Sculpturally motivated

A

t an early age Nobe Babayan has always enjoyed every form of art, but his true passion has always been sculpting. He grew up as part of a working class family in Armenia and received his Masters from the renowned

Babayan combines contemporary notion with a classical quality through sculptures that communicate with the viewer on many different levels ranging from quiet spirituality to delicate sensuality and dynamic motion. Nobe’s art is highly integrated, deeply sensitive, and provocative of thought in a manner seldom reached by the multitude of contemporary artists-his sculptures bear the unmistakable imprint of his originality, imagination, and personal creative expression. Visit www.nobeart.com for more information.

The art of gem carving

A

s a gem carver and goldsmith Don McCoy describes himself as a “purist who believes every aspect of a piece should be handmade by the artist,” writes McCoy. This self-taught artist from Salida, CO, is the sole creator of every aspect of his jewelry. He uses diamond tools, many of which he makes himself, to cut, carve and polish the gemstones. “I then alloy 24K gold into 14K, 18K or 22K and roll out my own sheet and wire to use in my hand-fabricated gold work,” states McCoy. Gemstones of the finest quality, unique color, structure, shape and hardness - including Australian opal, diamonds, tourmaline, topaz, fire opal are some of the gemstones used. McCoy will be showcasing at this year’s Palo Alto Festival of the Arts his ocean-themed jewelry in brilliantly carved colors and styles. In addition, his inlaid gemstone jewelry offers another stunning and distinctive look. Crafting these small works of art utilizes the utmost care which are meticulously attained in each piece.

o capture images from fifty to three hundred feet in the air is nothing new but to take photographs with a camera on a kite and transform them into unique expressions of art adds a new dimension to this artist’s creativity. Steve Keating has taken many architectural photographs of buildings, inside and out, for almost twenty years. However, he now specializes in creating aerial landscape and architectural images with a little abstract thrown in for added interest. Each print is custom-printed by Keating and transferred to wooden panels. With his “kite-flying camera”, Keating walks around without knowing what it is being filmed - only guiding the camera to different heights and places.

“That is the whole intention, the

surprise factor. Simple landscape forms and shapes take on a whole new look, have a completely different feel, from fifty feet in the air,” states Keating. It brings a new
