This Month's Featured Artists

Jade Griffin

Griffin is a self-taught, contemporary artist based in South Florida who uses her art as a tool of self-expression in which she can explore her thoughts and feelings about the world around her. Jade takes pictures of popular imagery such as cartoons, celebrities, magazine covers, and popular culture and combines the images with her imagination to create an alternate, abstracted reality that mimics aspects of herself while also adding her commentary about society, identity, and capitalism.

Read More As seen in her work, Griffin uses a combination of abstraction and figuration to build upon her artistic language as well as her fluent and compelling use of different mediums within every piece. Griffin proclaims the personality, and the plot of her work are sources driven by her life experiences, culture, music, and everyday life. Griffin's work has had Solo exhibitions featured at the Alliance for the Arts Gallery (2023), at Fogartyville Media Center in Fogartyville Florida (2023), in an Artist Residency At The Art Ovation Hotel In Sarasota Florida(2023), and in an A Group Art Exhibition Panel Discussion with Fabulous Art Foundation in Collaboration with WSLR Community Radio March 2023.

Artist

Sam Tanelli

Sam Tanelli is a Freshman at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida where she is studying Illustration. She particularly enjoys how drawing allows her to create images in a way that she sees them. Sam has explored a variety of mediums, but finds herself continually gravitating towards watercolors combined with gouache and pen and colored pencils. “They work together beautifully, and this combination of mediums can lead to a variety of amazing effects and styles to enhance my illustrations.”

She is looking forward to continuing her journey as a self-motivated visual artist who uses creativity to produce engaging and attractive illustrations and artwork.

Sam has recently achieved several accolades, such as the Betty Altman Art Award of Excellence, securing both First and Third place in the Sarasota County Spring Art Show, and receiving a scholarship from Arts Advocates.
