"Live in Full Bloom" by Lori Fisher in the Community Gallery


Live in Full Bloom

Artist Statement: I love surrounding myself with color, patterns and textures. This love of vibrant color and style is usually present in my painting as well. When given this opportunity to exhibit, I knew I wanted to create a show full of color and life. What better way to do this than with flowers. Having completed the first few paintings, I discovered I was only choosing flowers that were fully blossomed and realized that this was a reflection of my life. I believe there are two types of people in this world, those who are living and those who are existing. Many people pass each day with the same routine, void of any expectation, desire or initiative merely doing what is required of them, only to get up the next day and do it all again - they exist. Others live each day to the fullest, making the most of every opportunity to create new challenges and adventures, they find pleasure in the small things and welcome a change in routine - they live.

Although some days may get crazy and a bit overwhelming, I always choose to look up, feel the sun on my face, and Live in Full Bloom.

Heidi Urbanski in the Jewelry Gallery


Artist Statement: I started creating in stained glass in 2006 because it made me feel closer to my Mom who passed away in 1996. She was a fabulous stained glass artist who is now my muse and my children’s guardian angel.
I use the copper foil technique of stained glass to create my pieces. I enjoy mixing metals and stones to create the unique out of the unexpected. My goal is to draw people in so they want to take a closer look- I truly believe the jewelry you wear can be an extension of your personality and another way to express yourself. Creating jewelry is a visual and tactile experience for me. It starts in my imagination, and ends with a finished, tangible piece of wearable art. Thank you for joining me on this journey of creation and I appreciate the time you spent coming to see my work!
