From the Studio~~New Art Shop Launched!

This morning I woke up early, ground wonderful smelling coffee beans, and brewed a pot of coffee! I’ve been putting the final touches in place and can now announce~~

Our New on-line Shop is Launched!! Visit and look at the Art Prints & Originals being offered! 

Joni Beach Studio Art Shop with Big Cartel! 

Art Lovers, Art Collectors, and Creatives of Life, please visit and view what’s new in the Shop! You will find high quality, archival, Art Reproduction Prints of select Original Art Quilts. Order now, the Studio’s first  “Printing Day” is this week!

All Art Prints will be printed by me, the artist, as they are ordered, here in the Studio. I look forward to creating long-lasting, archival Prints created with vivid, pigment inks on great papers, such as Canon’s Pro Lustre. They will come signed, with title, artist’s name, and date of print, and matted with a Bainbridge Artcare Aphamat Matboard, and backed with acid-free foamboard, ready-to-frame! (Unmatted prints are also available.)

Today is also the first showing of my latest studio Art, Fractured Fish #2, from the series, Sea Images! (Available Here!)

Fractured Fish #2 (2017), Original Art Quilt, Rayon and metallic on cotton. © Joni Beach.

When I had a local ArtWalk exhibit a few years ago, a small art quilt called Fractured Fish #1 was popular with many people! And several Art Prints have been made of this design for Collectors. For the 2nd in the series, similar batik fabrics were used to create a vivid colored, watery ocean scene, but this time with a cool toned purple on a warmer toned background. An abstract fish swims among the swirling colors in the ocean’s depths and even has iridescent bubbles floating to the surface!

There is also a wonderful, fun Christmas art quilt, Santa’s Nighttime Trek, available in time for the Holidays~~Add it to your Art Collection or give as a unique gift to Someone Special!

“Santa’s Nighttime Trek” on Exhibit!

 

For More Information on Both of these Original Art Quilts, visit Art Shop!

**************

How can it possibly be the end of 2014 already?!! ~ This year has been a busy one with many new events and happenings for the studio…

*First was my solo exhibit during the local ArtWalk last February, hosted by the gracious Eucalyptus Spa & Healing Arts. In their gift shop of local artists’ work, they carry select prints and cards of my originals. Two pieces from the Winter Holidays series are now being shown and available there during the holidays~Santa’s Night-time Trek & Winter Wren. (See their website for contact information.)

*The Lifeweavings: A Creative Journey workshop is ready and planned for Spring 2015! The exact dates are TBA…and I will post those as soon as they are set. I look forward to sharing some activities and experiences with other creatives and artists for fun, inspiration, and motivation.

*Summer was a time of travel, warm days, and new inspirations. In the studio, a new piece in the Visions of Spain series is on the design board and many ideas are ready to be created!!  Watch the blog for updates!

*In the fall, the Lifeweavings exhibit traveled to Virginia Tech and was shown in the Wallace Hall Gallery…It was great to visit old friends and to given such a wonderful space to show my art!

*Currently, several major pieces are being prepared for submission to juried exhibits in 2015. This is always a “cross-your-fingers” activity, but rewarding when selected to show in venues at locations across the country.

So glad you visited the studio and…

May your Holiday Season be full of joy, beauty, and peace!
