My fellow artists and I have joined together and created  CENTRAL CREATIVE COMMONS, located in the Central-Cocoanut Historic District, in Sarasota, Florida.          

  

CENTRAL-COCOANUT HISTORIC DISTRICT

 Central Creative Commons is located in what is known as the Central-Cocoanut Historic District of Sarasota, on the northern fringe of the Rosemary Arts District. You didn’t know about the Central-Cocoanut Historic District? Neither did we until I did some investigative photo-footwork and located these boundary markers. “The district is along Cocoanut Avenue, between 11th and 22nd Streets to the south and north, and between Tamiami Trail and the railroad tracks to the west and east (Wikipedia).”  Central-Cocoanut Historic District was designated in 2005. 

Many of you are familiar with the two orange and green buildings at 1330-1340 Central Avenue which houses the studios of  painters, photographers, mixed-media, sculpture/ceramics, design, and more!

Artists who opened their studios today, Jan. 6, 2016 as part of the Sarasota Visual Artists Studios.
Other artist who participated but who I was unable to visit include:
Jorge Blanco, Bill Buchman, Tim Jaeger, Joseph Melancon, Tom Stephens.

The Open Studio Series is the 1st Saturday of the month January-April 11am-4pm.

This was a wonderful chance to see the Artists studios and hear what they want to say about their work.

It is a reminder that Sarasota is blessed to have so many talented and established artists. I hope this open studio series will expand awareness and appreciation of this treasure in our midst.

The next Open Studio is February 4. Put it in your calendar and when you go take your checkbook support the artists, enrich your life and bring beauty into your home with their creations.

One of the reasons artists collect so much stuff; rocks, feathers, shells, crushed cans, you name it,  is because they have a talent for seeing elements of design in everything. Shapes and forms in the natural world awakens a sensibility that we recognize as having a “sense of rightness,”  Mark Getlein, Living With Art.

Focusing  on the natural world engages our imagination and inspires a creative response. Design principles from nature show up in science, engineering, architecture, art, textiles and fashion.

The approach I took to photographing marine subjects for the book The Living Seas was to concentrate on  design within  marine life.  I  looked with curiosity at the line, light, shape and form I saw within the underwater world. Compositions  focused  on the central design feature of the subject I was studying.

A few years ago a project came along which gave me the opportunity to work with one of the finest designers  in America, Chip Reay.  Chip selected from my underwater images  ones which had  clean simple design .  He played with the photographs by making a duplicate of the image, flipping it and merging it with the original. the result was a wonderful mirror image, a delightful rorschach.  These three images are examples of his successful collaboration with my photographs.
