davidsonDalis Davidson

shawl_smallDalis is a shepherd, artist, dyer, painter, and felter. For more than 32 years she has lived in the foothills of Sugarloaf Mountain in the Agricultural Reserve of rural Maryland.

Never a day goes by that she takes this beautiful area for granted. Every sunrise, sunset, moonrise, rainy day, snowy day, foggy day, makes her glad she is able to create art in this beautiful area.

blueshawl_smallHer colors are inspired from the simple things she sees daily; the soybean and corn fields across the way, the sunset behind the barn, the zinnia patch, the view of Sugarloaf Mountain, the butterflies on her butterfly bush. It’s a never-ending parade of inspiration.

pinkshawl_smallHer main love is for fiber, the natural, organic feel of fresh wool in her hands. She is known for her deep, saturated colors, hand dying all the materials for her artsy scarves and shawls. Starting out with a silk chiffon base, she layers a multitude of fibers on top, including wool from her sheep. Her pieces are highly textured, colorful and a joy to wear.

sheep_smallDalis participates in many art shows and her work resides in numerous private collections. She owns and operates Dancing Leaf Farm where she has her art studio/shop filled with spinning, felting and knitting supplies, hand created jewelry and felt artisan shawls. Dalis features her own line of hand painted yarns, vibrantly dyed in a rainbow of colors.  And three times a year, she hosts an “Open Studio” tour at her farm.

Dear Friends, I am thrilled to present Local Artists Chuck Aaron and Bonnie Zuckerman’s Art Show “Fall for Art”, October 1st-21st, 2017 at HorseSpirit Arts Gallery. Chuck Aaron photographs the beauty of nature, landscapes, and urban scenery, as well as turns wood. Bonnie Zuckerman creates stunning hand-painted ceramic art with unique designs.

Opening Reception: Sunday, October 1st, 1-4PM. Come enjoy their beautiful artwork in the company of friends, with festive beverages and non-nutritional food groups!

About the Artists:
Chuck Aaron: His art allows him to create physical objects that express the beauty he perceives in the world around him. His photographs capture visual moments—a bird in flight, fall colors, a child’s joyful exuberance, a rusted street lamp. His woodturning engenders objects that emphasize the beauty of color and wood grain in a way that is both visual and tactile.

Bonnie Zuckerman: She creates highly detailed, one of a kind, hand-painted ceramics. She uses a wax resist technique to create a stained glass effect on her pieces. Each piece of art tells a whimsical story and incorporates imagery from her personal visual lexicon. Favorite subjects include birds and other animals, flowers, and fairy tale landscapes.
In closing: Please come join us for this wonderful art show, as well as see the original creations of 45 other local artists! Abundant kindness, Robin Holliday
