Artist of the Month – Winter Group Show at the Port Ludlow Sound Community Bank
What Lies Beneath by Pamela Raine
An art exhibit spotlighting Port Ludlow artists will be on display at the Sound Community Bank in December. Participating artists will use a variety of mediums so no two pieces will be the same.
Jeweler of the Month – Ginny Ford at the Port Ludlow Art League's Gallery
Ginny creates fine artisan jewelry in her design studio, Heavenly Mountain Studios. She works primarily in Sterling silver, silver, copper, and brass and enhances these metals by creating textures and patinas using hammering, pressing, heating, and chemicals.
Ginny's favorite technique, silver reticulation, is a process by which metal is made to draw itself into ridges and valleys, creating a unique texture. Unusual and colorful stones add depth and drama to her work. Many pieces feature clasps and ear wires that are either hand forged or made in Bali, Indonesia. Recently, Ginny has been experimenting with transparent enamels over fine silver and stencils with enamels on copper.
Ginny's one-of-a kind jewelry will be featured at the Port Ludlow Art Gallery in December. The gallery is located at the corner of Oak Bay Road and Osprey Ridge Drive in Port Ludlow.
