Come and celebrate with Skaneateles Artisans at their First Friday Art Night celebration on Friday July 1st from 6-9 p.m. where they will be featuring the works of watercolorist Ed Levine and beadwork artist Linda Bishop –Surbeck. Light refreshment will be served.

The gallery, located in The Old Stone Mill at 3 Fennell St, offers off-street

parking as well as municipal parking, and accepts major credit cards. Visit our website at www.skaneatelesartisans.com. For more information, call 315-685-8580.

 Linda Bishop-Surbeck Beadwork Artist

 

Linda loves tiny beads! Back in 1997 she discovered a bead store in her home town and has been addicted ever since to those itty bitty beads. At first she created pieces using patterns and gave them away as gifts. Now she designs all her own pieces in her head and puts them into beads. It may be a small container or it may be a stunning necklace. Linda enjoys the creative process that starts with a thought and ends up something three dimensional.

Creativity runs in Linda’s family from her grandmother who used to paint china to her daughter who creates jewelry with semi-precious beads. They all are self-taught and learn by looking at an inspirational picture or pictures of new techniques from a magazine or book.

Linda’s work will always be unique and she prefers not to make more than one of a particular piece. There will always be subtle changes in color or design. You will be purchasing a one of a kind piece! However, she does make exceptions for special orders, such as wedding party jewelry.

Ed Levine  Watercolorist

 

Ed Levine’s showing of new work consists of small watercolors that were done on a recent trip to Europe and larger studio pieces that reflect the strong nature of the atmosphere on and around Skaneateles Lake. 

Ed Levine has been painting with watercolors professionally for 35 years.  Most of his techniques range from traditional to very personal.  Ed taught art on the High School and College Level for 34 years and is now retired and painting full time.  Presently his work can be seen at Skaneateles Artisan in Skaneateles NY and The Pat Rini Rohrer Gallery in Canandaguia NY. 

Ed looks at a scene or a still life and strives to make it something that is more than a photographic recording, or a painted replication of a photograph.  It is more of an emotional response that can be shared with people with similar experiences. 

This response can be found in the form of heightened color, exaggerated shapes that work well with each other, strong contrast in particular areas or bold lines, all well thought out to orchestrate an exciting adventure for the viewer’s eye.  Ed has recently become a signature member of the Central New York Watercolor Society.
