Leading up to the October opening of the Grotto Gallery, we'll be highlighting the artists whose work will be exhibited at the gallery.
Last week, in our fourth installment , we chatted with Susan Rice and Lydia Quinones.
This week we offer our fifth installment with Jewelry Maker Marty Orosz and Curlicue Artist Jules Gissler.
Originally from Montana, Jules Gissler has trekked through various cities and artistic endeavors to arrive at her current destination in Phoenix, where she creates unique acrylic paintings and whimsical drawings in colored pencil.
Jules has taken to drawing in colored pencil with a smudge of charcoal—often showing up as her trademark curlicue. She extends her creativity beyond her artistic work by including a quirky story with her drawings, creating names and details for her subjects.
For the Grotto Gallery exhibit, we selected three story/image pieces from a collection of 13 total pieces that are all connected in some way. This is the first time she has displayed these, and she looks forward to receiving feedback about them from gallery audience.
Jules gains her greatest satisfaction when her artwork makes viewers smile or laugh, and we're confident her unique stories and images will generate many heartfelt smiles as part of the upcoming gallery show. To find out the stories behind all these images and how their stories intertwine, join us at Grotto Gallery.
