Blue Morning Gallery Is Proud to Announce Its 2019 Scholarship Recipient!

Newsletters & Articles Sep 20, 2015 Comments Off on Blue Morning Gallery Is Proud to Announce Its 2019 Scholarship Recipient!

It is with great pride and pleasure to announce the 2019 Blue Morning Gallery/UWF Scholarship Recipient, Jose Molina.

Jose Molina is an artist living in northwest Florida and attending the University of West Florida’s
Bachelor of Fine Arts program. Jose is a non-traditional student, he has been a father, a husband, a
Soldier, and a detention officer.
Art has been a lifelong pursuit. I find inspiration everywhere I look and strive to create something
different every time I work. Some of my pieces have a lot to say and others are simply what I felt like
creating at the time. I enjoy creating colorful mixed media pieces that make use of watercolors, pencils,
and ink. I produce artwork for myself, but I hope that others will find as much joy in my work as I found
creating it.

A special exhibition of Jose’s work begins on Sunday, March 24th and runs until Saturday, April 27th. In addition, a special “Meet the Artist” reception is scheduled for Friday, March 29th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The reception is free and open to the public. Make plans to meet Jose during his reception and don’t miss this special exhibition.

An Introduction To Jewelry Making

Newsletters & Articles Sep 19, 2015 No Comments

I think that one of my favorite crafts is jewelry making.  Beads should be part of any well-equipped jewelry making kit.  I love the choice of styles that jewelry making allows you to try.  The range of materials that you can use for jewelry making also means that their possible uses are limited only by my imagination.  Even though I was not a particularly experienced craftsperson I soon found that I enjoyed jewelry making and created wonderfully original jewelry.  Of course, I now wish that I was capable of far more intricate jewelry making but at least I am always improving on the ones I made before!
I enjoy jewelry making using a variety of different materials.  It is fun to look at what I have handy that I can convert into pretty jewelry.  One of my favorites is using strips of colored paper for paper mache jewelry.  My kids love tearing pictures out of glossy magazines and we try jewelry making together, well, almost!  They prefer to move straight to the decorating stage and I have found that dried macaroni makes an ideal bead.  The tubes of pasta have a ready made hole for threading and can be painted easily.  We also use clay quite a lot when jewelry making, probably because kids enjoy molding the shapes.  I have to take over the baking part but once
that is done they can decorate and varnish their creations and continue with their jewelry making.
