Bluejay by Anne Stine

We are pleased to have two talented artists sharing our gallery wall in May and June.

Anne Stine is primarily a self-taught artist whose main focus is the beauty of nature and humanity’s response to the world. Anne has a professional background in decorative arts. Her artwork is focused on the beauty of nature and humanity’s response to the world, and she loves to work in mixed media, including encaustic wax, sheet music and hymns, vintage and natural found objects. Faith pays an integral work in her life and is an influence in her work.

Octavia Frazier was born into a military family that lived in many parts of the world. While living in France, she learned to love and appreciate art, winning her first competition at age 12. Since then, she has created vivid and colorful still life works and interiors (she was an interior designer with Ethan Allen for twenty years). Her usual medium is oil, but recently she has incorporated more collages in her work and she finds herself moving more towards the abstract. Octavia has exhibited her art and won awards throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area for nearly four decades.

There will be an artist reception for Anne Stine on Sunday, May 15, and one for Octavia Frazier on Sunday, June 5, both from 2:00–5:00 pm. Come have a glass of wine and talk to these fantastic women artists about their work.
