ST. GEORGE — The Arrowhead Gallery is pleased to announce their October featured artists, Gayla Folkman and Jim Ross. Through the month of October, a number of new pieces will be on display in the gallery from both artists, and on Oct. 14, a “Featured Artist Reception” will be held in the gallery from 6-8 p.m.
The reception is open to the public to come meet the artists, view the wonderful art in the gallery and enjoy some delicious refreshments.
About Gayla Folkman
Gayla Folkman travels extensively, and her home has always been in the West. Everywhere she looks she sees a beautiful painting. She has spent years studying art.
Folkman paints in watercolor, oil and pastel in plein air whenever possible. She is always trying to capture a feeling when painting – the atmosphere of the mist moving off the iced lake with a backdrop of Alaskan glaciers or the sunlight warming the pink patina of ancient buildings with fishing boats bobbing in the harbor.
When Folkman hears others make statements about her painting such as, “I feel like I am walking the path in the painting,” she feels a measure of success.
About Jim Ross
Jim Ross started his glass artwork by chance. He was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time. When a friend of his decided to leave his business, Ross jumped at the opportunity to try his hand at creating one-of-a-kind glass works of art.
Ross enjoys the process of putting several sizes and shapes together by melting and meshing them to create his own unique designs. He always gets excited to open the kiln and see the finished product.
Ross says he is still intrigued by the process. He treasures all the different designs he creates.
