Jewelry, collages focus of Port Townsend Gallery exhibit

PORT TOWNSEND — Anne Schneider and Andrea Guarino-Slemmons are Port Townsend Gallery’s featured artists this month.

The Port Townsend Gallery, at 715 Water St., is open from 10 a.m. to to 5 p.m. daily as well as by appointment.

Guarino-Slemmons has been creating jewelry for more than 30 years. She has been recognized as one of the top art glass bead makers in the world and has traveled the world, teaching and selling her work in 17 countries.

She was recipient in 2015 of the highest annual award given by Bead and Button Magazine, the Jewelry Artist of the Year.

She spends many hours searching area beaches for sea glass and unique beach stones suitable for becoming part of one of her art jewelry creations.

This month’s display focuses on those beach finds by creating unique rings, necklaces and bracelets.

Her diversified work is created by hand with no cast components.

Her goal, she said, is to add a little love and magic into each of her art jewelry creations.

Schneider has emerged in her retirement as a mixed media collage artist.

“She employs implied textures, whimsical qualities, geometric shapes and dynamic movement as she tells a story in her art and combines order among chaos,” according to a press release.

“Harvest Moon” is an example of a combination of all these factors in telling a story for the season.

She creates collage papers making monoprints, using acrylic paints with stencils, masks, lines, stamps and textures. Her work is a process of layering these and other papers with acrylic paints on canvas or paper. Following the layering, a process of excavating through the layers and adding transparent layers begins.

For more gallery information, phone 360-379-8110 or see porttownsendgallery.com.
