Alexandru Macovei: Painting

First, we would like to introduce to you Alexandru Macovei. Alexandru is a talented artist whose artistic abilities you can clearly see in the painting pictured above. His works are in private collections all around the world. You would be very lucky to own one of his peices! You can learn more about Alexandru HERE.

Susan Painter: Pottery

Next, we would like to introduce to you Susan Painter. Susan’s sought after “Beachware” pottery is as practical as it is whimsical. Each unique piece comes handpainted in bright Key West colors or in lively Palm Beach earth tones. All are handmade by the artist on the potter’s wheel, many with hand crafted attachments, such as palm trees, fish, and shells. You can see more of her work HERE.

Nicholas Vidakovic: Wood Inlay

Last, but not least, we have Nicholas Vidakovic. Nicholas works in a style of woodworking called intarsia: pictorial wood inlay mosaics. Each composition is crafted from separate pieces. Those pieces are individually sanded, rounded, painted or stained, then inlaid to create the finished original design. Alternate direction of wood grains give each finished artwork its own unique character. You can learn more about this artist HERE.

You will be able to meet these fine crafters mentioned above along with 100 other crafters from across the state of Florida and the United States. So, start your holiday shopping and bring your friends and family to this FREE event!
