Chrysalis Metamorphic Silk Light Sculptures by Barbara Woods

Artemis Gallery is currently featuring Silk Lantern Light Sculptures by Barbara Woods!

Barbara Woods is an artist from Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her experience in the textile industry dates back over 30 years and includes designing and constructing everything from ski parkas and large tents to a clothing line and functional art. In 1988 she began studying the eastern techniques of Shibori, Katazome and Batik while experimenting with surface design on textile.

The Gutta Serti technique is her preferred choice for silk-painting. A strong background in tailoring and pattern drafting allowed her to create unique one-of-a-kind clothing. From 1990 through 1996 Barbara owned and operated the Wood silks Clothing Gallery in Santa Fe. Wood silks Clothing Gallery represented her work as well as works by textile artists from around the USA. The gallery specialized in custom hand-painted silk clothing, loomed knits and hand-weaving serving a worldwide clientele. In 1996 she closed the retail gallery to concentrate on her art.

Appealing to a broader audience, Barbara developed and sold a line of painted silk lampshades for the Buyers Market of American Crafts in Philadelphia. Then in 1998 she began designing a silk & ceramic sculptural light. Working in slab-constructed clay she carves and forms the bases and bodies. Using patinas and paint she adds color to go with the painted silk. The results are free standing lighted sculptures and sconces, some depicting winged wall creatures. She continues developing unique lamp shades in painted silk in a collaborative effort with H. Tom Thomas, her husband and partner.


Barbara Wood’s Silk Light Sculptures are currently on display at the Artemis Gallery, 1601 W Main Street!

Hudson River Beach Glass at Artemis Gallery!

Artemis Gallery is currently showing a beautiful selection of Hudson River Beach Glass!

“Our works are a collaboration grounded in texture, color, and the infinite viscosity of glass.”

For more than 18 years, Hudson Beach Glass- comprised of artists John Gilvey, Wendy Gilvey, Michael Benzer, and Jennifer Smith- have designed  and produced an original line of sculptural tabletop glass works in an amazing pallete of 14 rich gemstone colors.

To date, Hudson Beach Glass artists have experimented with a variety of glass techniques, including lamp working, casting, traditional freehand blowing and mold blowing.

Combining functionality with elegance, Hudson Beach designs are inspired and excited by forms found in the natural environment. Many of their pieces are used by food stylists for publications such as Food and Wine, Bon Appetite, and Gourmet Magazine. They have also appeared on several cooking shows on Television’s Food Network. The Hudson Beach Glass line has expanded over the years to include functional serving pieces as well as perfume bottles, jars, and bar ware. It has been well received by galleries and gift stores across the nation and internationally.

The Hudson Beach Glass show took place Friday May 3rd at Artemis Gallery.

Sylvie Harwin is a California artist who works in anodized aluminum-
a colorization process converting silver aluminum into multiple colors
through electrolysis. Sylvie makes a widely distributed line of “high tech”
jewelry that has been seen in many films such as Star Trek. Her work is in
private collections throughout the United States.
Jim and Tori Mullan of Mullanium work using recycled metal parts
to create jewelry with organic plant and animal themes. The couple
combined their individual talents and formed a partnership in work and
life. Their fascination with birds, nature, and antiques is still present
today and their vast collection of vintage hardware, bird carvings, and
watches fill up a 3300 square foot studio in Pompano Beach, Florida.
Jim and Tori’s collections can be found in over 1,000 galleries, museum
stores and specialty stores worldwide.
John Teal Crutchfield of Metallic Art Graphics works using a unique
graphics art technique which he applies to a high quality brass base
and casts in a durable clear fiberglass encasement. The purpose of his
designs is to evoke the inner desires of one wishing to escape from the
present to explore the past civilizations of ancient Egypt, Greece, and
Persia. To achieve these results, John draws on his influences from his
studies in Europe. His work has been photographed, written about, and
showcased in several galleries including the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery
in New York and the Artemis Gallery in Richmond, VA.

Artemis Gallery Presents Contemporary Contradictions in Glass First Friday Oct 5th

Artemis Gallery will present unique challenging art glass by up and coming young artists who challenge Dale Chihuly’s concepts of
decorative art.

For years, Dale Chihuly has been
impressing museums and collectors with his over done decorative glass
chandeliers that are dificult to install and can only be hung with his
15 associates.

At Artemis, you will see refreshing
new glass that you can instal yourself and be able to enjoy for years.

New color, new technique, and new artists will show a contradictory vision to Chihuly’s museum show and more
accurately represent the next
generation in glass.

John T. Crutchfield listed as a Top Artist in Richmond Times Dispatch, Sunday July 29th 2012

By: Times-Dispatch Staff | Times-Dispatch
Published: July 29, 2012

RICHMOND, Va. –A band played outside Artemis Gallery as dusk set on Richmond’s Main Street.

People were standing outside the art opening, but there was one character you

couldn’t miss. John T. Crutchfield was wearing large sunglasses with metallic

stripes across the lenses (he made them himself), a straw hat and a scarf.

Crutchfield, the owner of Artemis Gallery, specializes in metallic art graphics. The lights

in the gallery sparkle on his customized musical instruments with metallic features and

nostalgic images. His work has been featured on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and in Vogue.

He participates in art and music festivals and has applied his art to a $10,000 guitar for musician

Robert Francis, who toured with singer Jason Mraz. Crutchfield’s art also has appeared at

the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in New York.

Crutchfield started putting customized designs on instruments after a musician gave him a broken guitar.

But his style extends beyond instruments and includes jewelry, clocks, sculptures and more.

Ever since he was 5, art has been a part of his life. His parents wanted him to be a scientist.

“I pretended to be a scientist,” Crutchfield said. “I got out of school and did artwork. Follow your heart.”

The Floating Folk Festival 15th Anniversary First Friday June 1st at Artemis

The first show was held at the Main Street Grill on July 17th, and there have been hundreds more over the years.   As the Floating Folk Festival developed, it has added many more artists, even a bit of a rock and roll scene! The Festival has received a lot of attention over the years, by 1998 the organization was on the cover of the Weekender section in the Times Dispatch, had the first of three compilation CD released by Plan 9 Records, and was playing venues small and large throughout the area. But the core group always remained and stayed active in various ways, and has chosen Artemis Gallery to celebrate all of the hard work over the years to help make Richmond a great music town.
